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!

Poured from 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams Glass. Part of a 6-pack sampler. Labeled as Saranac Adirondack Lager. Appearance: Very nice copper color that’s clear with some carbonation visible. Pours a small, slightly off-white, soapy head which disappeared quickly. no lacing. Smell: Mild roasted malt, some slight hops. very mild Taste: You get some mild malt, some sweetness mid way, ends with just enough hops to have a clean finish. Decent carbonation Drinkability: Very easy drinking light to medium body, very smooth. perfect beer for a summer night. Overall: Nothing off putting. Some good flavors. Better than the macro lagers.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed May 16, 2012. The appearance is a pale amber colored body and gave a one finger white head that appeared for a minute, fizzled and died. A fair amount of rapidly rising carbonation was seen all around. No lacing was left. The smell has a light graininess with some background hops. Some malts came out. The taste is grainy yet had a slight citrus going on - kinda weird, but that was what I noticed. On the palate, its about a light and slightly creamy, somewhat sessionable. Overall, this was an average German pilsener. I’d have probably have it again depending upon what else was served.

A very drinkable summer lager. It has a really nice color, and a nice, clean aroma. A simple beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the bottle . Hazy amber with white head. Better than the commercial mega brewery lagers. But not anything too exciting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

floydslip (141) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Somewhat cloudy light amber beer with a thin white head that dissipates quickly into a surface film. Slightly pungent nose with hints of sour dough, orange, and light malt, but overall the aroma is slight. Flavor is a bit bolder and is dominated by a single note of medium citrus hops with little else. The body is pretty good with tight bubbles, and it’s smooth, but unfortunately it’s also boring and non-descript. Decent beer, but not one I would ever seek out again.

Surprisingly decent vienna lager from Saranac. Mild, mellow, and malty with a medium body. Nice mouthfeel.

Light amber pour, mild head and lacing. Aroma is semi malty and grainy. Taste is malted caramel and dry. Decent lager. Easy to drink, light.

Hazy amber, short off-white head. Woody/bark....caramel scent. Taste is slightly tea-like, a little bitter-leaning fruit.... Watery... But, not offensive, just a bit unexciting..
