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!

Nothing special, but will suffice over some others. Not many mind you.

adirondack? just a fancy name for a would-be special lager. get a sam adams specialty instead.

Deep amber color, nice white head. Real hoppy, which I like. Nice malt but a little too mellow to show very much. Head diminishes into a light froth.

decent beer, hops are a little overpowering, as with most all of their beer

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Dec 2001: Very pleasant, but simple. Above average for the brewer I’d say. Nice color, average head; good caramel note in the aroma; clean, sweet, crisp initial taste which fades and becomes rather boring at the end. 7/3/6/3/13 3.2

Nov 2005: Smallish fizzy head immediately dying into a translucent, thin cover atop a totally clear amber body...light caramel nose, hints of cherry and pine, pretty indistinct and weak...body quite watery, lightly sweet and a bit grainy, seems to be some saccharine or other artificial sweetener taste there that really helps to kill it...bit of smokiness fails to redeem a fairly bad vienna.

I thought that this beer was reasonably well hopped for a pale ale. What i did not like about this beer was the fact that amber was a strech in the color department and it had a thin again dare I say adjuncty maltiness that prevented me from really enjoying this beer.

Cider-colored, with 1/2’ head that lingers. Engaging malty aroma. Mellow, tart, clean, crisp flavor. Standard palate with trailing bitters. Brewers take note: This is the way to use Cascade hops, if you have to! Refreshing beer. I’m pretty impressed with Saranac.
