3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams Glass. Part of a 6-pack sampler.

Smell: Mild roasted malt, some slight hops. very mild
Taste: You get some mild malt, some sweetness mid way, ends with just enough hops to have a clean finish. Decent carbonation
Drinkability: Very easy drinking light to medium body, very smooth. perfect beer for a summer night.
Overall: Nothing off putting. Some good flavors. Better than the macro lagers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed May 16, 2012.
The appearance is a pale amber colored body and gave a one finger white head that appeared for a minute, fizzled and died. A fair amount of rapidly rising carbonation was seen all around. No lacing was left.
The smell has a light graininess with some background hops. Some malts came out.
The taste is grainy yet had a slight citrus going on - kinda weird, but that was what I noticed.
On the palate, its about a light and slightly creamy, somewhat sessionable.
Overall, this was an average German pilsener. I’d have probably have it again depending upon what else was served.

A very drinkable summer lager. It has a really nice color, and a nice, clean aroma. A simple beer.

From the bottle . Hazy amber with white head. Better than the commercial mega brewery lagers. But not anything too exciting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Somewhat cloudy light amber beer with a thin white head that dissipates quickly into a surface film. Slightly pungent nose with hints of sour dough, orange, and light malt, but overall the aroma is slight. Flavor is a bit bolder and is dominated by a single note of medium citrus hops with little else. The body is pretty good with tight bubbles, and it’s smooth, but unfortunately it’s also boring and non-descript. Decent beer, but not one I would ever seek out again.
