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!

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

nice golden look to this winter beer. this is actually my first Vienna. the hops are very light in flavor. plus the head dissappers too fast.

Nice malty carmel aroma light amber in color with a nice white head that left a fair amount of lace.Taste wise was kind of oily malt taste with not much hops. I agree with some other reviews that something is missing from this brew. Overall a decent beer that's easy to drink.

Light amber in color with a light and white head. The aroma is only very faint and the taste is of diluted with malts with some bitterness. Not much to write about. It is by no means an interesting beer.

Good but not great. Nothing to distinguish itself. It seems to be a space filler in their lineup. Do not go out of your way to find it.

Another pretty beer by Saranac, once again looks great in the glass. When I got this on tap I thought something was wrong with the keg, almost no flavor. Good lawnmower beer.

I’m an ale fan, I love hops and dark grains and a serious bite to my beer. But on the level of lagers which are typically light, I think its wonderful. Better flavor, body, and carbonation level is perfect. I even like it better than Harp and Urquell. If this were $8.99 a 12-pack I would buy it on a regular. But since it’s an easy-drinkin’ lager, ehhhh I’d rather have a tasty ale. But for those who think yuengling is a good improvement on domestic lager, throw that shit away. Adirondack kicks lager ass.

Slight Honey brown color. Stanks. No head, kind of bitter. Not as good as their Pale Ale

Adirondack Lager. 12oz Bottle part of Winter Pack. Aroma of Budweiser, looks like it too. Tastes kind of earthy, like dirt. There’s a weird aftertaste. Not a favorite of mine.
