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!

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

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.

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.

Not much to the beer, a typical lager. Gorgeous color and thats about it. Little aroma, medium body, light hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vmilaxer29 (412) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle- Deep copper color with a small head that fades to some lacing. Mild sweet caramel and malt aroma. Starts a bit sweet with malt and a mild bitter finish. Fairly light body with some carbonation. Nothing fancy, just a nice middle of the road beer.

chinchill (2719) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2013
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.

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.
