Bottle to tulip glass

A- pours a clear golden color with a small foamy white head that disappears quickly, leaving nothing behind 3.5

S- faint noble hop aroma gives notes of herbal tea, german pilsener malt gives some crockery aroma 3.5

T- any sign of hop bitterness is nearly nonexistent, classic pilsener malt flavor kicks in with a grainy, slightly harsh finish 3

M- light body with light carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish 3.25

O- this drinks more like an adduct lager than anything, not one of their best 3.25

Pours a dark amber color with a one inch foamy slightly off white head that dissipates VERY quickly. No real lacing is left along the glass so visually there is nothing at all noteworthy about this beer. The smell and taste is grainy and sweet. I think it's actually a very well-balanced beer -- perfect amount of carbonation and just the right amount of a slight sugary sweet caramel overtone to it. A little sour finish however.

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.
