    Purchased at Walmart in Connecticut. :). Pours an amber colour with a nice creamy off-white head that stays a long time. Good cereal malt and caramel notes. Same for taste. Pretty damn good for a lager.

    Pours hazy amber orange color with a foamy light tan head that faded about average time, leaving decent spotty foam lacing and a creamy layer on top. The aroma is of grains, tea leaf, floral hops, light caramel, lightly roasted malts and a whiff of citrus. The tates is also of grains, tea leaf, floral hops, herbs, caramel, roasted malts, citrus like lemon or coriander. The mouthfeel is smooth and oddly crisp at the same time, with average/medium carbonation.

    This poured a dark golden color with a white head. The aroma is corn and some malt. Not pleasent. The flavor is quite malty and sweet with some corn and odd chemicals. Vienna my arse. This is like a Bud with a ton of high fructose corn syrup in it. Next! Whats Next!

    It pours a dark amber/copper with a thick white head and some surrounding lacing. An aroma of caramel malts, citrus, sweet iced tea, some bitterness, and faint spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth and fairly rich. Flavors of caramel malts, light hops, orange/citrus, tea, bitterness, bread, and light spices. 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.

    Above average for the type. Pours bright amber with a medium head and nice lacing. Crisp and slightly bitter with a clean finish. Smooth texture and floral aroma.

    Clear golden pour with a slight white head and little lacing. Slight malt aroma with slight fruit and hops. Taste is very average with a typical lager flavor; slightly crisp, some fruitiness, malty, slight hops in the end.

    Per bottle: Adirondack Lager, "Originally Adirondack Amber". Pours a clear bright amber with a slight off-white head. Nutty malt aroma and a clean, smooth mouthfeel and an effervescent character. Flavorful taste of biscuity caramel malt well-balanced with a subtle hop bitterness.

    The Adironacks is a beautiful area. And so how could one go wrong with a beer that identifies itself as a representative lager/ A golden amber bodied beer. Impressive so far. But the head is weak and frothy disappearing all to quickly. The aroma is subtle hops and bittering of citrus. Carbonation is not overbearing. Some smoothness in the drink. And the taste is more hops, floral and bitter.

    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. This is a very good Vienna style lager and a must have when I go camping in the Adirondacks.
