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!

The appearance is a clear light orange color. A decent, thick head that recedes quickly. Good color, good carbonation. A crisp lagery malt smell. Sweet biscuity malt with mild German-bitter and sweetish flowery hops (the label says Hallertauer and Cascade). Not at all wimpy. The taste gives a very nice sweet malt flavor. Not burnt, but toasted, followed by a sweet caramel/toffee flavor. Really good for a lager: top notch for style. The feel is not watery at all; in fact it’ gives the consistency of a slightly creamy ale. It’s a very good lager; perfect combo of thirst-quenching but not thin or watery.

Pours a big head which fades down to lace. Slightly darker than the average amber. Malt/Hop aroma. Malt prevailes in the flavor, with a buttery sweet aftertaste. Maybe it's cause I'm drinking this on a hot summer afternoon, but I like this stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2003 Nice true amber, med firm head, Orange and caramel aroma. Typical presentation with light caramel malt, and med hoppiness. Hop flavors are pleasant, I enjoy the combination of cascade and hallertauer. Elements of hop spiciness, resin, grass and just a touch of citrus.

A very good beer indeed due to it’s nice balance and smoothness of test. Wasn’t overly strong, but the sweet malty taste was finished off by a slightly increasing bitterness towards the end. Color wasn’t quite the amber I expected, but it was pretty close.

Very good amber beer, smells and tastes a bit hoppy. Goes down smooth, but still slightly watery.

Color is a nice amber orange with a nice white head. Cant really put my finger on the aroma, kinda hoppy. The start has a rich nutty hoppiness that lasts throughout. The bitterness dies towards the finish leaving a pleasant and non-overbearing finish. The palate is a good balance between heavy and light. Another solid brew by the Matt brewery!

I am more than likely being a little too generous with my rating on this beer. However I found it to be quite pleasing for an amber. A nice bitter/sweet flavor with a semi good carbonation. Now this is not a great amber like garrison quoted, but it is quite good. Full body, but not as complex as the brewing company said it would be. None of the beers that I have tried from this company were great, but rather standard. I had higer expectations for it, but oh well.
