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!

Rune (11123) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2009
355ml bottle bought at the USA Bar, BSF, GBBF 09. Off-white, or yellowish, head with spotty lacing over a crystal clear, amber body. Inviting smell of fruit-malty sweetness. Caramel and toffee malts in flavour with a welcoming bitter end to keep some of the malty sweetness at bay. Soft in the mouth. Tasty vienna lager (Hotel room, Earls Court 05.08.2009).

daknole (10872) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle. Yellow port. Light head. Malty and grainy aroma. Nothing amazing here. Grains, boring hops, bitter. Meh.

shrubber85 (10683) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Bottle. Sugary apple/cherry malt aroma. Amber with nice head and lacing. Sugary caramel malt flavor. Not horrible for a Vienna - par for the course for Matt.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Clear, orange ale. Small, fizzy, white head. Good lacing. The nose is soapy and beefy. Well-balanced, crisp, tangy flavor. A bit grassy. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not a bad example of the style, but not a good one either. Not one of my favorite styles to begin with, but a good Summer thirst quencher!

adnielsen (10485) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of BLACKIPA!!!!!! EYE OF THE SPONGER!!! FUCKEN A BRO!!!! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Toasted malty, caramel, fairly dry, herbal, lightly grainy aroma. Lightly fruity, caramel, a touch nutty, mildly hoppy flavor. Cool name, not so cool flavor. Cheers Michael James!

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle. Nice amber colour with a medium fair lasting head. Aroma of malt, hoppy with a bit of caramel. Nice flavour of malt, nice fruitiness, some caramel. Little bitterness in the malty finish. Fresh and tasty brew.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Warm amber and a nice, golden head. The aroma is typical for a lager, but the flavour surprises me! The mouthfeel is rather full and there are nice notes of aroma hops, malt, caramel and the finish is nice and citrussy - but not in the hash grapefruit way, that I found in other beers from this brewer.

another rather thin and lightly flavored beer from Saranac, but the body is crisp and the beer well balanced between carmel malt and spicy hops. it still comes off a little bland, but not bad."
