COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac Pale Ale is a classic English Pale Ale brewed with six specialty malts and aggressively-hopped with hand-selected English Kent Goldings & Fruggles hops. Look for a rich fruity hop bouquet. A copper amber color and a smooth, full-flavored taste with a crisp finish that only comes from a genuine top fermented ale. Enjoy!

Nice copper color. Reminds me of a hoppy version of Bass Ale. However, the hops are not overpowering which gives it a balanced flavor. I am a newcomer to Matt Brewing’s offerings but am very impressed so far.

The fuggles and goldings are easily noticed in this hoppy pale ale. It’s decent for its style. Perhaps not as thick and malty as some. Saranac often brews up less-aggressive, more mainstream beers from each style.

Very average pale ale, english in style with muted hop flavor. I m not a huge fan of this brewery, and this is probably one of their better beers.

Not too bad. It kind of reminds me of Sam Adams Pale Ale, which really isn’t a bad thing. There is just enough bitterness to make me think of saranac’s black and tan, though.

I really like Pale ales and this is a good one. Very good hops and good on the palate. Pretty strong taste and i like that a lot.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2002
Nice light rootbeer colored ale, with a smooth palate and little aftertaste. Slightly malty with good hops balance. A little weak/watery. Not a bad pale ale, through

Unremarkable American pale. They use NW hop varieties, but not in NW amounts, which is nice.
