Saranac Our Pale Ale

Saranac Our Pale Ale is produced in Utica, New York by the Matt Brewing Co. It's sold in 355mL bottles that do not have a percentage listed, though the Saranac website informs me that there is 5.5% alcohol and 32 IBUs in this brew. O.P.A. is a rich, clear, brassy ale topped with a healthy off-white head.

There is a warm, coppery aroma that has some grainy notes and a bitter follow though. Our Pale is a very easy drinking pale ale. It's malty and metallic initially, giving way to a fairly mild, dry, and bitter finish.

This'd be a nice beer to bring on a camping trip, since it has some character, but you likely wouldn't have a lot of trouble putting a couple away. I'd have liked a bit more hop fullness though.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
