Saranac Mountain Ale

OK, not your everyday kind of beer, and it does have a somewhat artificial flavor about it, but despite that it remains drinkable.

Good looking beer on all fronts. Nice burned gold coloring, decent head and some definitely better than average lacing.

Aroma is not great. A sort of acidic vinegar smell pervades the “beer” smell. Its weakest point.

Tastes. Definitely infused berry taste that is tart, and it blocks out most of the other potential flavors. Despite this, it finishes clean and crisp and is pretty refreshing. I was surprised that I like this, because there is a definite artificial feel about this, but it remains refeshing, clean and easy to drink. Odd really because this is NOT the kind of beer I usually embrace much.

Good value in the Saranac, “Beers of Summer” 12 pack (includes 6 different beers) for $10.99.
