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.
