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!

A nicely colored copper-orange body covered with a nice foamy head. Citrus hops and caramel malt notes in the aroma. Crisp, medium-bodied feel; slightly fizzy. Warm malt flavors, reminding me of honey and biscuits; good complementary hop bitterness.

Another decent if non-exceptional offering from Saranac. Tasty and very drinkable, all things considered.
