Saranac "Session Ale"
F.X. Matt Brewing Company - Utica, New York USA
Blonde Ale (ABV 4.5%) (IBU 30)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 2.8/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 10/20

The pour was a clear amber yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that reduced down to a thin film with a medium collar and had fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of grain malts, grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of citrus (lemon and orange), honey and a light adjunct (corn) presence.

The taste was a light malty sweet with a touch of honey early on, progressing with a grainy bitterness and a hint of citrus towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a lightly bitter citrus taste disappearing rapidly off the palate.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a clean and crisp Blonde Ale with a smooth and easy drinkability, and although I did not find it to be anything special it still was not to shabby...
