COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

12 oz bottle poured in standard pint glass. Clear and attractive copper color with a finger of off-white head. The head soon reduced to a thin coat. Mild roasted malt aroma with detectable hops. T - also mild and mostly malty; taste is similar to a marzen, with little hop presence or bitterness. Some sourness. I liked the nose a little better than the taste. M - thin and slightly watery; carbonation a bit too low. D - lacks complexity, boldness, or distinctiveness. Certainly not bad, but disappointing.

Bottle->SA. amber with white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: malt, grains, straw. Taste: sweet malt,slight bitter finish. Inoffensive but boring.

My "craft"experience in college in the middle of nowhere. Ok amber. Nothing to write home about but drinkable I guess. Bit watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Little skunky, like a lot of cheap lagers. Slightly bitter malty taste. Bleh.

Medium dark amber color with a light head covering and blobs of lace. The taste is unpretentious, yet easy drinking. Caramel malt starts things assertively, followed near the finish by mild bitering and carbonation. Not a big deal, but much preffered to the national brands. Easily the best of the Saranacs I have had. Recommended for sessions and warm days.

It’s an easy little beer, not much going on. Probably a nice beer on a hot summer day. Don’t think, just drink!

Pours amber true to it’s name. Head faded quickly. Smelled of malt and hay. interesting aftertaste. A lot of carbonation.decent but nothing special.

Bottle, part of a variety pack. Pours a clear amber. Smells of grain, hay, straw, and tastes similar. Pretty thin, light body.

b3shine (4460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent light-copper with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet, doughy, and lagerish-skunky with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

Bouteille 12 oz. 5.4%. Couleur ambrée. Arôme de malt et céréale fraîches. En bouche, malt, caramel, un peu d’herbe. Très bonne lager ambrée.
