2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Sweet old malt on the nose with some plum and old stone fruits behind it. Medium bodied, a bit of alcohol peeks through, which is odd for something so low in ABV. Spicy malt with a bit more sweetness and caramel. Lingering light bitterness with old fruit. Not good.

another rather thin and lightly flavored beer from Saranac, but the body is crisp and the beer well balanced between carmel malt and spicy hops. it still comes off a little bland, but not bad."

This beer reminds me of the half mad tirade that F. Murray Abraham does in the award laden film Amadeus. During the scene, if you are not familiar with the film he declares himself the patron saint of mediocrity. And henceforth this beer should stand as the benchmark of mediocrity. Double meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle, 5.5%, 2.10€. Amber color, almost clear, nice smooth creamy white head. Some caramel malts on the nose, quiet. Aroma is soft caramel malts, 5-cereals, cheese, chestnuts, earthy. Taste delicately bitter, balanced. Body is light, somewhat dusty. Short mineral bitter finish. Soft but biting carbonation. As expecting from a lager, nothing exciting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brought back by my neighbour from his hiking trip pours deck stain brown with a frothy one finger cap that disappears quicker than my cousin when the cheque comes to the table. A slightly confused brew: more amber than anything else (somehow someone below me calls this a pilsner which is odd). Woody malts, sugary on the tongue & not as crisp as you’d hope for.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, as Adirondack Lager. From old notes. An amber lager. Slightly sweet, with caramel flavors, and a bit of hops. Nothing special. A little fake ad sugary tasting, but not terrible.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from a sampler pack from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have bready malts, mild floral hops, light caramel, light fruitiness, mild to moderate bitterness with a slightly dry finish. Better than expected for a lager though now they are calling it an amber.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Adirondack Lager pours a clean and clear amber color with a big foamy head. The big white head leaves delicate lace patters on the glass. In the nose, white bread and lightly toasted malts mix with honey and hops. In the mouth sweet caramel and toasty malts are balanced buy some hop bitterness that leads into a crisp refreshing finish. The carbonation is mellow with a medium body and a smooth mouth feel.
