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!

Deep copper with a large white head. Aroma is of toasted malts and light hops. Medium body. Flavor is light. Toasty malts, a bit of herbal and citrus hops. Easy going lager.

Originally reviewed: 1/30/09. Got this in the mixed Saranac sixer. Pours a crystal clear slightly dark gold. Very small head present, disappears quickly, leaves little lacing. Smells really sweet. I smell honey, apples, some citrus. Great mouthfeel on this one. Very creamy and smooth. Not watery like some brews of this style are. Some slight hop bite to this. It’s faint, but it’s there. Malt is the main player, but not overly so. This is a really well-done beer in my mind. This would be my new session lager if I could find it in a 6-pack here. Recommend.

Bottle. You get what you pay for (sometimes). And in this case, yes. What enticed me was a six pack that offered four different beers; kind of a cool marketing scheme. It’s been years since I had any Saranac brews, and they’re about the same as I remember. This one, the lager, is a decent enough brew. Better than a Yuengling, not as good as some imports from good old Europe, the bastards. The scent was very faint, a bit of dough, and the pour was a foamy head over an amber body, lots of lacing. The medium crisp palate complimented the lightly bitter taste, a bit salty in the finish which was a little odd. Overall, I don’t think I’d buy it again.

12 ounce bottle pours an amber color, aromas of caramel, malt, and grass. Flavor is the same as aroma with some hops at the end.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Deep amber color. Basic malt smell with some grass and grains. Medium sweetness with a hoppy finish. Light to mid bodied and low carbonation. Easy drinking beer. Vienna meets Munich halfway to Marzen.

rangerred (916) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a slightly hazy dark gold with plenty of carbonation leading to a thick two finger head. Retention is pretty good. Smell is some caramel malt along with a metallic note that is not too pleasant. Also some grassy hops buried in there. The taste is much better than the smell with a pleasant caramel maltiness dominating. There are also some bready flavors in there along with some grassy hops. A nice soft bitterness comes in at the finish. First off, I think this more a vienna lager than a german pilsener. It actually reminds me somewhat of SA Boston Lager but not as good. This is a solid but unspectacular brew.

Pours a light amber color with some malty aromas. Slight hop flavor which balances the malts well. Pretty drinkable beer.

Beautiful aroma, much more than I expected. Something of a bland taste, but that may be because it was drunk with pulled pork. Nice sweetness, very mild on the bitterness, but the aroma hops really come through. Much nicer than I expected. Bottle from somewhere in Saratoga, shared with kevinsenn.
