It’s that time of year again…okay it’s not here yet, but not according to the breweries! Already the summer beers have begun to pour into stock at the liquor store. I will be doing some repeat reviews this summer, but only if this years batch has gone sour or improved from last year.
Already I am seeing new summer beers that I have not seen before, like Saranac’s Summer Ale, not to be confused with their Summer Beer/Lemonade Ale. All in all it is a pretty decent summer beer, light, refreshing, lemon twist (but surprisingly subtle). Not my pick of the litter, but when I tried my second bottle I was actually enjoying it. For a lot of people the lemon finish killed it for them, but it didn’t bother me so much.
The label and six pack packaging didn’t do anything for me visually, they pretty much stuck with the Saranac look, which I guess isn’t a bad thing. Check it out once it gets warmer out…depending on where you are that might be all year round…bastards.
