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!

Goldenrod color, virtually no head. Very little lacing. New smell? no. A little appley, that's all. Virtually flavorless taste, with only a slight bitter bite. Reminds me of drinking unsweetened iced tea. Champagne like mouthfeel. I'll never try this plain, boring brew again.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Icky, sticky fake caramel taste, rancid aftertaste, no hops. Tastes like syrup without the pancakes...a lot is missing here.

Pours clear golden, no head. Sour hoppiness. Short suor and bitter finish. OK CO2 level. Poured most of it out.

12oz bottle
My bottle says "Lager", and that’s what it tasted like to me. And not a real good one either.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle. Clear orange color with white head that didn’t leave any lace. Starnge aroma of grape candy, husky grain, and light malty caramel. Tasted of hay and again of grape candy. Slightly tart on the tongue.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 5, 2008
Bottle. Amber colored with a frothy off- white head. What seemed to be intended as a competent lager of honeyed cereal malts and floral hops was basically ruined by an annoying salty funkiness. Probably a defective bottle, but this was enough of a bad experience that even taking into consideration the good qualities of this beer it’s just not worth going back.

TURDFERGUSON (4042) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle shared by Taylor. Smell is buttery and crystal malty. Buttery corn...this may be infected, because it tastes gross. Undrinkable towards the end.

Average lager. Nothing outstanding here. Hints of fruit or caramel--nothing really stands out. Smooth though.
