Saranac Pale Ale brewed by Matt Brewing Company with an ABV of 5.5% This brew pours out a dark golden amber color with a small white head. Saranac Pale ALe is a filtered brew you can see right thought it. The smell is rich with sweetness and grains. There is nothing bad about this brew so far. Now for the taste, it is smooth at first with some bitterness at this end. This brew has a nice balance to it nothing overpowering in it brew. The mouthfeel is rich and full but this brew goes down smooth. Over all I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again.

Saranac Pale Ale from Matt Brewing Company. Yet another review out of their sampler pack. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 1.5 finger thick head, clear brownish amber body, and solid lacing.

I smell a lighter vibe going on here. Little bit of citrus perhaps. I about had to stick my nose in the brew to get a decent whiff. I wish it had just a micro-hair more presence in this category.

Tastes like roasted malts, earthy hops, and I taste the citrus but its more tart than sweet.

Mouthfeel is clean and slightly dryer. Nice work here.

Overall a 3.25 for Saranac Pale Ale from Matt Brewing Company. It was "meh". Probably won't get this on its own.
