2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours copper with a 1/2" head. Light aroma of hops. Pretty decent taste with a light to medium body. Smooth palate. Not bad, but not that interesting.
12 oz bottle of 5.7% ABV, labelled as Big Moose Winter Ale. Poured into a Leffe chalice on 14th Dec 2017 at my daughters place in California. Slight haze to the old gold/amber body, smooth off-white blanket of foam for a head. Malty, semi-sweet front with a lingering hop bitter finish. Almost liked it, OK, I did like it. trapped (3782) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 13, 2017
Draught @ Albion. Clear rich golden yellow with small foamy off-white head, very faint citrus aroma, medium carbonation, mildly bitter caramel malt taste with little citrus flavor, thin body, long medium bitter finish. Not bad though lacking a bit of character. generallee08 (778) - New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
The body has a beautiful clear amber body with some slow moving carbonation. On top sits a tight thick and creamy light tan head. The head has good retention and cling which makes lots of cool lacing on the glass. Its nose has a pleasant lemony citrus note coming through with some pale malty sweetness under that. Bright citrus hops flash across the palate up front. Just after that nice bready and sweet malty notes sneak in before the hop bitterness and dry yeast flavor sweeps over and fades into the finish. The body has a nice medium body with lively balanced carbonation, This is a very well made and enjoyable pale ale with very good balance and bright flavors. It is simple, very refreshing and highly drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold orange. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Flavor is mild, piney hop, mildly nutty finish. Some balance, but overall very mild. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. A mild pale ale.

Bottle. Was not impressed. Color was a deep gold. Some, but not great head. Taste was weak, straw, not much hops. Aroma was watery and hay like. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2013
November 2009. Bottle from a mix Saranac sampler. Light amber color with a white head. Caramel and sweet aromas. Bland and not very complex. Drinkable, but just not interesting. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized white head. Sweet on the nose, toasted caramel and toffee, somewhat papery. Medium bodied, soft toffee and sweetness. Toasty into the finish moving to a soft bitterness. Not terrible, not memorable.
