Saranac Adirondack Amber is craft brewed with pure Adirondack water, bottom fermented and fully lagered to carefully balance the sweetness of two-row malt with the delicate bitterness of American Cascade and German Hallertauer hops. Look for a golden amber color and medium body. You’ll discover a distinctive flavorful beer that is deliciously drinkable. Enjoy!

Poured from 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams Glass. Part of a 6-pack sampler. Labeled as Saranac Adirondack Lager. Appearance: Very nice copper color that’s clear with some carbonation visible. Pours a small, slightly off-white, soapy head which disappeared quickly. no lacing. Smell: Mild roasted malt, some slight hops. very mild Taste: You get some mild malt, some sweetness mid way, ends with just enough hops to have a clean finish. Decent carbonation Drinkability: Very easy drinking light to medium body, very smooth. perfect beer for a summer night. Overall: Nothing off putting. Some good flavors. Better than the macro lagers.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed May 16, 2012. The appearance is a pale amber colored body and gave a one finger white head that appeared for a minute, fizzled and died. A fair amount of rapidly rising carbonation was seen all around. No lacing was left. The smell has a light graininess with some background hops. Some malts came out. The taste is grainy yet had a slight citrus going on - kinda weird, but that was what I noticed. On the palate, its about a light and slightly creamy, somewhat sessionable. Overall, this was an average German pilsener. I’d have probably have it again depending upon what else was served.

A very drinkable summer lager. It has a really nice color, and a nice, clean aroma. A simple beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle . Hazy amber with white head. Better than the commercial mega brewery lagers. But not anything too exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Somewhat cloudy light amber beer with a thin white head that dissipates quickly into a surface film. Slightly pungent nose with hints of sour dough, orange, and light malt, but overall the aroma is slight. Flavor is a bit bolder and is dominated by a single note of medium citrus hops with little else. The body is pretty good with tight bubbles, and it’s smooth, but unfortunately it’s also boring and non-deScript. Decent beer, but not one I would ever seek out again.

Surprisingly decent vienna lager from Saranac. Mild, mellow, and malty with a medium body. Nice mouthfeel.

Hazy amber, short off-white head. Woody/bark....caramel scent. Taste is slightly tea-like, a little bitter-leaning fruit.... Watery... But, not offensive, just a bit unexciting..
