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!

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.

BeerandBlues2 (11659) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Pours copper with a small off-white head that soon dissolves into an even smaller patchy head. Fast rising bubbles are numerous. Lightly soapy malt aroma with a faint hop nose. Medium hoppiness in flavor with a hint of yeast. Thin falling lacing. Palate is dry and medium-bodied. A very drinkable beer.

madsberg (11249) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2006
Bottled: Mørk gylden farve. Tåget. Beige tæt skum. Sød, frugtig, sukret honning aroma. Smagen er også frugtig og sød. Ret tynd krop og tendens til at være vandet. Lette urte og blomsternoter, men dog overdøvet at maltnoterne. Lidt karamel. Er let bittersød i enden. Let at drikke.

Bottle. Yellow port. Light head. Malty and grainy aroma. Nothing amazing here. Grains, boring hops, bitter. Meh.
