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!

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 (10191) - 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.

hopscotch (10147) - 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 (10138) - 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!

Dogbrick (9672) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2002
Very malty and mellow, a great cigar beer. Nothing too complex going on here, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Medium creamy head and sweet aroma.

GT2 (9410) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
355mL with Eye of the Sponger custom label thanks to womencantsail via BlackIPA. For real, there is a SpongeBob on this official beer label. Pours a sparking clear amber with medium off white foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is honey, sweet cherry, sugar, more of a fake dish soap cherry. Taste is soapy, honey, wheat bread crust. Soapy and dry palate with a suddy hydrogen peroxide thing going on.

Rune (9407) - Tromsų, 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).

shrubber85 (9146) - 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.
