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!

Bottled. Sweet malty aroma. Dark golden beer with small head. Flavor is sweet and malty with a medium body and a hop-bitter aftertaste. (051104)

harrisoni (14693) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle from GBBF 09. Yes, not a bad little lager. It has the requisite hop bite, decent malt and nothing out of place. I thought this was pretty solid. Decent hop for the style. Would happily drink this again.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle as Adirondack Lager. Hazy golden/orange colour. Very big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is mildly malty with a slightly grainy, but OK flavour.

TBone (13637) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled "Lager", alc. 5.5%
Copper brown, not much head. A bit sweet, rubbery malty nose. Medium-bodied malty, balanced. Sweetish, a bit hoppy aftertaste.

Leighton (13373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
Perhaps the most standard Saranac brew. A nice sipping lager to savor in the Central NY region. Pours a light amber tone with a medium head. Hoppy aroma and a flavor of malts and mild caramel. Pretty drinkable.

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2003
Bright copper colour. Aroma is toasty, caramelly, with a slight nuttiness. Slightly sweet accent, with caramel and light toast. Slightly oxidized astringency in the finish.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle from Shawn. Thanks! Light amber pour with a white head. Nose is rather seltzery. Some grain, grass, and toasted bread. Mild yeast, soap, and a hint of floral hops. The flavor is really just fizzy and abrasive. Seltzer water, grain, floral hops, and grass. Light toast, soap, bread, and yeast.

bhensonb (12044) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle from a mix box at the Roseville BevMo - labeled Adirondack Lager. Pours copper amber with a fizzy off-white head. Sort of a warm caramel aroma. Med body. Flavor is caramel with some light grassy hop. Smooth. Soothing even. Not exciting.

argo0 (11913) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 11, 2003
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.
