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!

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.

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

Not as complex and distinctive as I like, but a solid, inexpensive amber lager.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2005 Very nice dark amber color. Good carbination and usual head for the type. Surprised by the complexity of flavor for a lager. Good amber lager.

I got this from the winter pack (under the name Adirondack Lager). This has a nice amber color though the head is nearly non-existant. The aroma is cool and refreshing like a morning stroll through the mountains of the same name. The flavor is a light sweetness, not too hoppy, and the aftertaste is sweet with no signs of bitterness. Enjoyed from a briefly chill pint glass, this was a nice beer.

OK not great. Taste was the Amber standard. Not impressed by the small head that was flat in no time.
