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!

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Golden yellow, nose of wheat, pale and sour hops and a even malt body. More of a grainy flavor, with a almost sour fruit finish which isn’t very pleasent... good bitterness.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2004
A standard amber, with typical amber taste overtones. Not great, not bad, middle of the road. Subtle caramel, toffee, and malt flavors. Good complexity.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber body with a small white head. Oddly sweet aroma, dilute toasted malt. Very light bitterness, lightly astringent toasty malt feels wan and dilute. Average to light palate. DNF.

shrubber85 (7594) - 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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2011
12oz bottle post GBBF, Day 2, August 2009 as Saranac Adirondack Lager. Dark gold/orange colour. Biscuity malt predominant. Just a hint of vague grassy hop on the palate. A straightforward and inoffensive amber-ish lager. Not much else to say.

Ibrew2or3 (6881) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Pours clear copper with 30 second thin off white head. The mild aroma has sweet malts, a bit of roast, hay and dark fruitiness. The somewhat thin body brings in both moderately roasted malts to sweet malts to faint grain and dark fruitiness. The malty notes fade by midway leaving a modest amount of dark grape and sweet raisin fruitiness. It gets a tad roasty into the finish as the sweet dark fruits finally dwindle into the after taste. Nice flavor.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Sweet old malt on the nose with some plum and old stone fruits behind it. Medium bodied, a bit of alcohol peeks through, which is odd for something so low in ABV. Spicy malt with a bit more sweetness and caramel. Lingering light bitterness with old fruit. Not good.

Plovmand (6480) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 16, 2008
As Adirondack Lager. Bottle. Amber color with medium white head. I catch the cascade hops and the malt in the nose here without being too dominating. Refeshing taste of sweet malt and hops but also nuts and caramel is there. A bt weak.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 23, 2003
With its weak head this dark amber looked quiet sad that night. Sugary, sweet aroma. Taste suggests that bitter (cheap) hops were in use. They tend to leave annoying aftertaste.
