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!

Amber in color. Looks a lot like a pale lager or a pale ale. Light, malty aroma. Thick, frothy white head. Taste is pretty bland, but not offensive. Overall, a decent lager.

The thin off white head does not last too long but the body is a nice amber. The malty aroma isn’t great with moderate bitterness in the taste. Decent but nothing special. I wouldn’t go out of my way buy it again

Nose? Amber, foamy head that is pretty sticky. Not a lot fo flavor, more hops than I expected. Good lawnmower beer

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with off-white head that quickly disappears. Getting a lot of sweet toasted malts off the nose with a little herbal hop. Taste is sweet with grainy cereal and toffee notes. There is a bit of hop bitterness to balance things out. Not up there with a good German marzen, but still a solid beer from Saranac.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Bottle. This is my go to beer whenever I want a medium bodied beer that won’t break the bank. Nice roasted malt flavor. Little bit of hops shows up at the end. A great lager that isn’t trying to be anything else. Overall for $5.99 it’s a great beer.

Poured into a pint glass this brew has a nice amber color and a nice 2 finger head that disappeared within a minute or so not much lacing ...has a nice malty nose with just a hint of citrus from the cascade hops,taste is of sweet malts and a minimal hop finish all in all its a great lager one of the best of the style I’ve hade well balanced ...cheers

decent beer, hops are a little overpowering, as with most all of their beer
