Bottle. Dark amber body with a small white head. Oddly sweet aroma, dilute toasted malt. Very light bitterness, lightly astringent toasty malt feels wan and dilute. Average to light palate. DNF. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of BLACKIPA!!!!!! EYE OF THE SPONGER!!! FUCKEN A BRO!!!! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Toasted malty, caramel, fairly dry, herbal, lightly grainy aroma. Lightly fruity, caramel, a touch nutty, mildly hoppy flavor. Cool name, not so cool flavor.

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. KyotoLefty (10603) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2014
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. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Warm amber and a nice, golden head. The aroma is typical for a lager, but the flavour surprises me! The mouthfeel is rather full and there are nice notes of aroma hops, malt, caramel and the finish is nice and citrussy - but not in the hash grapefruit way, that I found in other beers from this brewer.

355mL with Eye of the Sponger custom label thanks to womencantsail via BlackIPA. For real, there is a SpongeBob on this official beer label. Pours a sparking clear amber with medium off white foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is honey, sweet cherry, sugar, more of a fake dish soap cherry. Taste is soapy, honey, wheat bread crust. Soapy and dry palate with a suddy hydrogen peroxide thing going on.

12oz bottle, came with the "Saranac Trail Mix" variety 6-pack, labeled as "Adirondack Lager". Artwork is exactly as pictured though, reasonably classy in my opinion, and the $8 I paid at my local Kroger is always a reasonable price in my opinion.
Aroma is pretty pleasant, much more complex than I was expecting from a "Lager". Malty, with a dark bready flavor, caramel hints, but definitely some hops present as well. Has a "bite", but that keeps things interesting. Some sweet, light sour, and light bitter flavors all present, but nothing really stands out. A bit more thickly carbonated than I prefer, but a nice finish -- not too long, but noteworthy. I picked this one first from the variety pack because it looked the most boring, but overall, it was a pleasant surprise. I’d drink it again. blipp (9598) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle. Pour clear amber with a white head. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with a bit of hops. Body is a bit too thin. Flavor is again caramel malt and hops with hints of nuttiness and fruit, however the finish leaves a slight metallic note. JoeMcPhee (9517) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2007
12 oz bottle. Rich amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, showing noble/spicy hops over a soft nutty caramelly malt character. The aroma is hoppy but the flavour is substantially sweeter than the aroma suggests, leaning toward the malty side. Malts are bready sweet and slightly nutty, but still pretty tasty. A surprisingly decent Vienna.
