Orange copper color with a tan head. Soft floral hop aroma with traces of malt sweetness. A rather wide ranging bitterness with a somewhat salty finish. Slight gritty texture and a tad roasty.

Okay for the price, but nothing to write home about. Probably won’t try it again.

Nice english pale overall, although it was a little on the light side for flavor and color. Sure there are better pales, and I would rather have an american style anyday, but this is still a good beer. Very refreshing.

I’ve had some better pale ales by far, but you have to give some points to saranac who make every type of beer ever known and do it reasonably well.

I didn’t like one bit! not one bit at all. Nope, not one bit at all. To bad this is what upstate New yorkers call a decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber color with a thick off-white head. Floral hops aroma leads to a nicely hopped crisp flavor with a somehwat dry finish. Not the best, but still quite good and enjoyable.

Nice crisp, mildly hoppy pale ale. Not as good as Sierra Nevada, but much cheaper.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite aromatic--probably the EKG hop presence. Full bodied coppery flavor,
amberish-brown in color. Malt and hops balanced well. Crisp finish with a bold
bitterness, but no bad aftertaste. The best of the beer’s features is price. At
5$ a sixer, it easy to overlook any faults the beer has. The truth is, however, that
it really is a good beer.
