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!

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.

Toasty marshmallow nose, rounded mouthfeel. Malty in the middle and towards the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Had this while golfing..Didn't really like it too much actually..a bit of carmel, some hop presence, but nothing going on as far as anything else goes

The most pleasant surprise of the trail mix sampler pack. I think I would consider buying a six of this stuff at some point to break the monotony. Definite sweet, malty, hoppy flavor - traces of sweetness emerge a little more as the beer goes on. Decent, thick foamy head throughout the entire brew. Good beer.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 4, 2002
Slightly hoppy, slightly spicy, slightly malty. Unfortunately, it’s just slightly everything. The only intense flavor is the blandness. Nothing special whatsoever.

Spicy front of the palate. Quick sweet finish. Lots of oxidized/pasteurized flavors.
