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!

Caramel in colour, but a tad light for an ’amber’ beer. Hoppy smell, which is a false indication of the flavour. Very light in taste, not much to it!

Big head on the pour fades to leave a clear amber body topped by a medium eggshell head. Aroma is earthy hoppy supplemented by a bit of caramel maltiness. Flavor is unimpressive, mild earthy hoppy but not much else. Kind of just sits there. A perfectly adequate beer, but I expect more.

I think this beer will come to mind when someone asks me to describe a basic, simple beer. "Balanced" may be the charitable way of putting it, but you might also just say this has a little bit of everything with every element in mild proportions. A bit o’ malt, a bit o’ hops (especially coming out in the aroma, a rather nice feature of this beer, being floral and promising), a bit of carbonation but certainly not overdone. I don’t know what it does particularly well but....

Well balanced flavor of malts and hops. Not only a beer I can enjoy, but also could pass off on to my non-beer geek friends.

This beer seemed a combination of a vienna lager and an APA/ Amber bodied with a very thick amberish head and a an aroma of rather soapy hops. The body was lightly malted with some cascade hop flavor, small bitterness, and a refreshing quality.

Honestly this is similar to Sam Adams Boston Lager in every aspect. Golden/amber color with a bubbly head. Malty sweet nose hiding a hint of hop. Taste is caramelly, sticky and lasts long after you swallow it. Not as good as their Pale Ale but better than some of the others.

I was pleasantly surprised this wasn’t a Killian’s Red clone. Sweet carmel malt nose. Brown-amber color. Tiny spots of lace. Not quite enough hops to balance the malt especially as it warms. Slightly fruity but there’s nothing to make this brew stand out in crowd.
