Our original award-winning Saranac beer is brewed in the German Lager tradition using Noble hops. We balance the hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness, creating what we like to call a “round” beer.

A good head with a super amber color. Bitter taste with a slight acidic taste. A little dry. The bottle I had was named Adirondack Lager. Very pleasing beer.

I’m an ale fan, I love hops and dark grains and a serious bite to my beer. But on the level of lagers which are typically light, I think its wonderful. Better flavor, body, and carbonation level is perfect. I even like it better than Harp and Urquell. If this were $8.99 a 12-pack I would buy it on a regular. But since it’s an easy-drinkin’ lager, ehhhh I’d rather have a tasty ale. But for those who think yuengling is a good improvement on domestic lager, throw that shit away. Adirondack kicks lager ass.

The appearance is a clear light orange color. A decent, thick head that recedes quickly. Good color, good carbonation. A crisp lagery malt smell. Sweet biscuity malt with mild German-bitter and sweetish flowery hops (the label says Hallertauer and Cascade). Not at all wimpy. The taste gives a very nice sweet malt flavor. Not burnt, but toasted, followed by a sweet caramel/toffee flavor. Really good for a lager: top notch for style. The feel is not watery at all; in fact it’ gives the consistency of a slightly creamy ale. It’s a very good lager; perfect combo of thirst-quenching but not thin or watery.
