3.63/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A great head sits on top of this beer and slowly works its way down to just a thin layer on top, leaving a little bit of lace. The beer is yellow-orange and clear with not many bubbles to be seen.

The first whiff is of wheat and comes at you hard before the the subtle smells of orange rind and graham cracker find there way to your nose.

It is a slightly bitter beer with a hoppy taste. Just a little dry with an underlying maltiness. Tangy feeling on the tongue. The aftertaste is dry but good.

A very enjoyable beer on a sunny afternoon.

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.
