Another entry in my occasional series about variety 12-packs…
As the calendar turns from March to April, spring is in the air and spring beer is in the fridge!
The Saranac 12 Beers a Springing is a rite of spring. The 2015 version included:
- Pale Ale, this classic English Pale Ale is a Saranac staple (5.5%)
- Prism White Ale, a delicious citrusy brew that could be considered a White IPA (5.2%)
- Heart of the Hop, this tasty Red IPA is brewed with Simcoe and Citra hops and balanced with a rye malt (6.0%)
- Goat Rodeo Pale Bock, a light German-style Lager (6.0%)
I was disappointed that this 12-pack only included four different brews; in past years, Saranac’s seasonal mixed packs included six different brews. And as much as I liked the Prism White Ale, I was not a fan of Goat Rodeo. So I don’t expect to buy this 12-pack again this spring.
