On tap at Red Robin in Valparaiso IN served in a 22oz pilsner glass.

Look- A slightly cloudy gold color with a centimeter of white foam. Generous lacing is left behind as you drink it down.

Smell- Citrus, floral and some malt. Pretty tame in general with nothing standing out.

Taste- A mix of citrus and floral. There's a pronounced kiss of lemon zest in the finish.

Feel- Sticky and resiny with a chewy malt backbone.

Overall- A very flavorful and easy drinking pale that has a full feel to it without being too filling. I wish the Pony would grow up and start distributing as this would be a regular in my fridge.

Buried in the heart of Lansing, Illinois lives a stallion, not a pony. This mildly aggressive American pale ale appears golden and has a scent of hops. This beast provides taste of hops and a hint of grapefruit (not overly aggressive). This stallion not only won the Kentucky derby, but it won the triple crown (appearance, smell, taste). Spotted Saddle has earned a spot in my top three American pale ales: 1. Three Floyds Zombie Dust, 2. Half Acre Daisy Cutter, 3. One Trick Pony Spotted Saddle. Spotted Saddle is an inexpensive brew that is definitely worth a try. I recently brought a growler of Spotted Saddle to a 4th of July party, needless to say at the end of the day everyone was raving about Spotted Saddle and the firework show.
