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!

harrisoni (13632) - 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.

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.

argo0 (11452) - 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.

bhensonb (10979) - 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.
