Bottle, part of a variety pack. Pours a clear amber. Smells of grain, hay, straw, and tastes similar. Pretty thin, light body.

b3shine (8246) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent light-copper with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet, doughy, and lagerish-skunky with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

The beer is clear and light copper in color, with a tiny head that recedes hastily, leaving minimal lacing. The aroma is pretty weak, emitting faint scents of sweet malt, fruit, and a general lager presence. The beer is sweet, perhaps a bit much. Grainy, malty, sweet, with a subtle fruitiness. The feel is thin to medium in body, with carbonation level lower than is customary. Overall, this is drinkable, but I wouldnt buy it again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-14-2011

Overall I enjoyed Saranacs Adirondack Lager more than most other traditional lagers you would find in your local gorcery store.

12oz bottle from a sampler. Pale and clear amber with a generous white head that fades relatively quickly. For some strange reason the aroma reminds me a cottage lake but in a good way...not much else to add to that apart from light malt. Moderate carbonation and mild body, mild sweetness, carbonation becomes more prevelant on the finish, slight caramel as well. Not bad actually and I would probably choose it over some of their other offerings.
