3.98/5  rDev +18.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

It is sweet, hoppy and flavorful, perhaps not in the right ways but as somoneone who prefers ales this is quite a nice lager.

I admit I swigged this one right out of the bottle so I can't comment accurately on the appearance or the mouthfeel but I can say it has an abundance of flavour. The malt is light and sweet and lingers nicely. The hops are a funny mix, but for those that love cascade it seems just right, perhaps a little strong though?

It doesn't quite have the refinement and balance of other amber lagers but it tasted pretty good to me.

Saranac Adirondack Lager from Matt Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle intp a glass, this brew's got a two finger thick head, darkish medium clear amber body ,and lacing

Smells pleasantly like malt and perhaps a bit of molasses. I quite like this.

I taste the aforementioned malt with a molasses touch as well. Only a very small bit of earthiness, too.

Mouthfeel is smooth and clean. A very easy-drinking brew.

Overall a 3.25 is given to Saranac Adirondack Lager from Matt Brewing Company. This was pretty damn refreshing after a five mile hike on a humid day in July. I'll probably pick this up again.
