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!

12 ounce bottle w/o freshness info of any sort to be had.

Pours caramel and lightly hazed. Very minor head, next to no film/collar/lace.

Meh kinda nose of more caramel smellin' malts...

Herbal tea hops, caramel malts, not loving much about this one.

Not really coming together for me. Bordering on unpleasant to drink.

Caramel orange colored with a low beige head that settles out quickly. Low aroma of toasted malt and citrusy hops. Flavor of orange rind citrusy hops and well-balanced malt. Hops are front and center though, and continue to evolve as it warms. A piney bitterness lingers. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but carbonation tingles.
