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. Youíll discover a distinctive flavorful beer that is deliciously drinkable. Enjoy!

brewed with pure adirondack water - and that is the predominant taste here. the malt and hops keep coming and going - continuously overpowered by the water. some warmth at the back of the throat, but otherwise, nothing special at all.

not as deep as i'd like from an amber. seemed a little under-carbonated, perhaps. not much hop, or much flabor really.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 Bottle. Aroma is sweet, malt, citrus, honey, but...not too pleasant. Slightly skanky. Pours amber gold with a thin white head. Flavor of honey, none bitter hops. Finishes with distinctly non floral hoppyness. Feels thicker than most other lagers, but not overly so. Eh. Itís not bad, its just nothing special.

A little more color than plain old Saranac Lager, less bitter finish, a little too sweet. A little more bittering hops could balance out the sweetness, but Iím stuck here trying to scrape it off my tongue with my teeth.

Bottle. Alias of Adirondak Lager on my bottle. Iced Tea. Disappointing. Just nothing special or distinguishable.

From a mixed 12 pack. Far better than the regular lager, but still not that great. Not too impressive.. just got the mixed 12 for some variety and was expecting both lagers to be weakest. It wasnít an inaccurate guess.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Pours golden/amber with a thick frothy white head. Aroma is mildly sweet, but quite metallic. Flavor basically the same as the aroma, but with some slight bitterness. Palate is bitter and metallic. Easy to drink, but not very enjoyable.

CelticBrew (752) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Pours a light/medium amder. Biege foamy head. Aroma of roasting nuts and malts. Nuts and burnt malty falvor followed by a hopful finish. Not my kinda of style. OK beer, un-refined I think.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle - AKA Adirondack Lager - Poured a darkish amber in color with a small white head that held up pretty well. Aroma is medium of hops, but the smell of corn adjunct is present too. Flavor is somewhat hoppy and bitter, but has the "megabrew" corn flavor that is a huge black mark against this beer. Clean finishing, easy drinking, but not all that good...

tastes like thier orginial lager. Didnt think that the special hops helped the taste. As far as their other beers go, this is more drinkable but less flavorful, kinda weak tasting.
