Not sure if it was too cold or what, but the bottle spewed when opened.... After it settled, pours copper, no real nose just a hint of German pilsner. Body is full, bitter and malty with flavors orange peel, caramel and pilsner skunk. Not impressed...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally rated June 2012. Purchased at Walmart in Connecticut (under Adirondack Lager). :P. Pours an amber colour with a nice creamy off-white head that stays a long time. Good cereal malt and caramel notes. Same for taste with a little hop in the finish. Pretty decent for a lager. Refreshing, with more taste than most macros.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep gold with a white head. Aromas of some very light floral hops, sweet corn. Taste is similar to any standard macro lager but with a slightly healthier hop bite. Not bad.

Labeled as Adirondack Lager. Pours a hazy amber. Minor aroma of hops and malt. A little hoppy for my taste and in this class.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz Bottle into pint glass. Half finger worths head, dissapated quickly. Nice orange/yellow amber color, noticeable carbonation bubbles floating up. Aroma is very weak, almost maybe citrus? Very carbonated mouth feel, followed by generic lager taste which quickly leaves the mouth.
A very weak beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with off-white head that quickly disappears. Getting a lot of sweet toasted malts off the nose with a little herbal hop. Taste is sweet with grainy cereal and toffee notes. There is a bit of hop bitterness to balance things out. Not up there with a good German marzen, but still a solid beer from Saranac.
