Transfer from BA rated on 1-26 -12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance - Pours an amber, slightly red color with a head that faded quite fast to give just a bit of lacing. Smell -Caramel is the first detected with a bit of maple mixed in. At the end there is a little bit of citrusy hop aroma, not much, but a very light aroma. Taste - Sweet malt up front with hints of caramel and the slightest bit of roasty flavor. A very light hop taste, mainly pine meets the tongue later in the tasting experience. Mouthfeel - A just above average mouthfeel. A decent body and a nice level of carbonation. Overall - Its a good session beer. Saranac always does a great job of offering quality beers at a good price. In fact I would say they are one of the tops in taste to price ratio. Well worth a try. Serving type: bottle

Bottle pour. Rich amber with sizable white head. Solid lacing. Nose of caramel biscuit malts and soft floral hops. Flavor is tilted towards the malts, with just trace spice from the hops. Overall: average.

This is an excellent pale ale. Gorgeous colour, fruity nose. Bitter yet fruity finish. Grapefruit. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a fantastic orange amber with a lusterous shine and thin head of off white foam that fell pretty fast. Nose is bright with floral hops. Beautiful sweetness that does not get too fruity but just hints at fruit. A balanced herbal scent that suggests grass and hay. A malty sweetness that is grainy and a bit husky. There is a touch of mild soap on the nose but nothing egregious. Taste is lovely. Bitter. Hop forward without being too hop important. A nice biscuity malt with enough sweetness to rock those hops into submission. And a pungent little herbal to really quaff! OH!

Finishes wonderfully and balanced well although slanted a bit toward hops. No presumption in this one just a slightly bitter tonic that growls a bit.

Thanks, Jacob, for the bottle! It pours a deep golden colour with a very firm 1" head of foam that leaves excellent lacing behind. The smell is on the sweetish side with just a bit of some bitterness noticeable to my nose. The taste does a good job of representing an EPA. Nice sweetish notes from the malt...not earthy nor grainy, just a pleasant sweetness. The hops show up mostly in the finish where it gets a tad bitter but overall, a very enjoyable brewski. On the light end of medium bodied, good carbonation, this is a well brewed beer. I like.

The color is a clear orange with a small white head, and the aroma blends grassy hops with amber malts. The taste is slightly bitter, a touch sour, and slightly sweet; the palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and lightly bitter finish.

[ Tap ][ He’s Not Here ][ 32oz ][ $5 ][ PET Blue Cup ][ 3/28/14 ]
>> Pours light amber, good yellow foam. Nose is vegetal, soy sauce, Worcestershire. Taste is papery, lemon, toffee, acid, water. At least it isn’t nutty, dusty, sticky.
