I get sick of the people who write in and criticize any Saranac or Dundee beers. Two NY Brewers that have made good brews for years.
Just about everything they make is Very Good , Easily drinkable product that is reasonably priced. Could they take more chances with what they are making? Of Course, but is what we are drinking from them worthy of the criticizm? I hardly think so. Are all of you that sophisticated?
I HARDLY THINK SO.

brown brew with a banded and foamy head of off white and light brown. mouthfeel of a Scotch ale with a bit of malt and scratchy burnt peat. Some nice hoppy flavor of white and red grape a bit of ivy and a fresh pine finish. stages well through the senses like a good ale should.

Nice dark red/brown beer with a decent sized head. Taste is okay. Need a bit more of hops. Really good quality-price ratio. This cost 1,69 dollars at Good Bear in East Village, NYC.

A unique red IPA from Saranac. Good sweet reddish notes and a good hopfeel. Nice balance!

From a bottle poured a dark amber color with a small amount of head. Bitter malty hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Poured from bottle. Good aroma of hops and caramel. Red amber with coarse tan head. Mix of hop flavors - pine, floral, citrus - along with caramel, butterscotch and a hint of spice. Not bad.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a reddish-orange color with a huge creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, sweet malts and moderate grapefruit. The flavor was tangy and bitter grapefruit, orange and toasted caramel. Long bitter grapefruit, orange and caramel finish. Medium body. Solid.

12oz into a glass. Pours a caramel, ruby red. Aroma is sour, grapefriut, coned hops, amber waves. Taste is hoppy up front, soapy, sour, and intersting for this hybrid. Smooth going down and no real bite after makes this one thrive on a continous flow. No head retention, the ipa feeling comes and goes rather quick, more like a hoppy amber here, but nice bottle art and the hops are pleasurable. I like to try different beers.
