troysworktable (109) - Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2008
12 ounce bottle. One of six beers in the Saranac Sampler Adirondack Trail Mix six-pack. Drunk in Arlington, Virginia. Saranac Adirondack Lager poured yellow-orange with a white head that quickly dissipated. It had lively carbonation of small squiggly bubbles. There was absolutely no lacing. The main aromas consisted of graham cracker, the syrup of canned pears, and buttery yeast. The flavor lagged behind, a bastardized version of the aroma’s promise. There was even a hint of varnish lurking in the background. If it was the only thing available or if it was the only non-macrobrew present, then I would drink it again. Otherwise, I would only use it to clean paintbrushes.

malvrich (264) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2016
6 week old bottle into a pint. A: Poured hard but still little head, quickly down to thin film. Deep clear gold color with a few visible bubbles. S: Malty brown bread and yeast smell. Earthy hops. T: Bitter leafy hops note with a suggestion of citrus . Faint toffee provides nice balance. Not as malty as the nose. M: Average carb level. Light to medium body. Clean tart finish. O: Nothing sticks out here except the taste, which is actually quite good. Well worth a try.

OnTheTrail (394) - Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours clear light amber. Big off white head. Malty aroma of cookies, biscuits, light flowers. Moderately sweet malts, with just enough bitterness to cut am keep it from being cloying. Medium light and very carbonated mouthfeel, quite drinkable.
