This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at another new Saranac brew - India Copper Ale.
Over the course of the last few weeks, I have been sampling the new brews in Saranac's 2010 Twelve Beers of Winter Box (see reviews of Lake Effect Lager here and Vanilla Stout here).
The Saranac India Copper Ale poured a rich amber color with great lacing - my tulip glass was coated with foam, almost like the windows on your home when its below zero outside. My first sip of the brew revealed good carbonation, which is typical of most Saranac brews. I also was immediately hit with a strong hop flavor, not overwhelming, but definitely pronounced. The beer evoked memories of Redhook's Longhammer Ale, although with a little less bite.
The India Copper Ale was a perfect pairing with roasted meat and would do well consumed with char grilled steaks in a quality steakhouse.
Saranac India Copper Ale is under the Kosher Supervision of the Va'ad of Detroit, as is every other brew produced by Saranac. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about Saranac India Copper Ale, please follow this link http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/99/62579.
As always, please remember to drink responsibly and to never waste good beer unless there is no designated driver.
