Saranac Big Moose Ale is an American Pale Ale with a kick. The medium-bodied malt sweetness is balanced by a nice crisp bitterness from hand selected centennial and cascade hops. Look for a vibrant citrusy hop aroma that will leave you craving another swig!

    Amber copper pour, nice white head, some residual lacing. Almost stale piney citrus hopped aroma and flavor, some malts, pretty boring and weak though. Not a seeker.

    pours a golden amber, with a small white head that settles with moderate speed. It keeps a ring and leaves some lace. The aroma is nice fruity hop with pineapple, tropical fruit, tangerine, and some more general citrus. The taste is fairly firm bitterness with hop character is less fruity.

    A copper color with a white head. Aroma contains some pine, citrus, and herbal notes. Flavor is rather bitter with some oranges and more herbal notes. A bit of a strange aftertaste. Overall middle of the road like most Saranac beers.

    This is a part of this years 12 beers of Winter. Poured a dak mahogony with light tan head and good lacing. There was a nice mixture of malt and light hops. Made the beer rich but refreshing. The mouth feel was smooth wich made it most drinkable

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into pint glass. There is no freshness date on the bottle but it did come in the new 2009 winter pack so I have a good idea of how fresh it is. Appearance: 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. Smell: Its nose has a pleasant lemony citrus note coming through with some pale malty sweetness under that. Taste/Palate: 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. Notes: 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.
