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!

decent pale ale, nothing special here, not much more to say, standard fare at best.

Copper amber hue. Small whitish head dissipates rather quickly. Grain and floral nose. Hops are definately dominating this brew. A little more maltiness and it would be very nice. Lack of balance loses points. These guys are a bunch of awesome people, but their brews seem to fall short more times than not.

I enjoyed this Pale Ale more than usual, probably because it wasnt too hoppy and had a full mouthfeel with a complex range of flavors. Balanced fruity and spicy tastes make this a solid beer all around.

A bit spicy for my liking, but it was not a bad pale ale at all.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2002
Orange copper color with a tan head. Soft floral hop aroma with traces of malt sweetness. A rather wide ranging bitterness with a somewhat salty finish. Slight gritty texture and a tad roasty.

Okay for the price, but nothing to write home about. Probably wont try it again.
