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!

Ungstrup (29699) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006
A dark orange beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is quite hoppy with both notes of flowers and citrus - a combination of English and American tradition. The flavor is sweet malty with a note of caramel, before a mostly flowery hoppyness starts to dominated, and leads to a quite bitter end with a touch of straw.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Lightbrown, clear and filtered with a lightbrown and pretty stable head. Actually a very pretty appearance. The prominent hop character (Kent Goldings and Fuggles) tickles the taste buds first, but also six different malts contribute to making this a very complex and well done brew.
