COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finally a Pale Ale true to it’s name! We’ve created a crisp, hoppy Pale Ale that is truly pale in color without sacrificing the hop character and malt balance you expect in an American Pale Ale. We’ve selected citrusy centennial hops balance by the background nuttiness of Maris Otter Malt. We think you’ll find this the most refreshing Pale Ale you’ve ever had. 11.75°

AirForceHops (6181) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2011
12 oz bottle. 12 beers of Summer mix pack. Color is clear yellow, high carbonation. Good amount of lace. This reminds me of a lager. Almost no aroma or taste noteworthy. I wouldn’t bother with this one. Pass.

wlajwl (5773) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Not particularily good flavor but not really the worst pale ale out there. Could do a lot worse, although the extremely pale malt probably is what took the flavor out of it.

jgb9348 (5677) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Crisp golden coloured body with the lightest hint of an orange or copper trying to peek out. Light off-white head and a few bubbles rising from the bottom - doesn’t look horrible. Aroma of funky malt, a touch of light hops, skunk, cardboard and corn. Light-bodied; A touch of hops up front with a little pine and grapefruit and a touch of malt, cardboard and some dry herbal tastes. Aftertaste shows some light hops even longer with a prolonged hoppy taste that I can’t believe is coming from a Saranac beer - actual intended taste. Overall, a suprisingly decent beer from a way subpar brewer. The beer isn’t good, let me get that straight, but at least it’s not bad, and even pleasurable when in a hot day! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 24-July-2011 for US$1.35 sampled at home in Washington on 06-August-2011.
