Im 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 its an easy-drinkin lager, ehhhh Id 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. Its a very good lager; perfect combo of thirst-quenching but not thin or watery.

Pours a big head which fades down to lace. Slightly darker than the average amber. Malt/Hop aroma. Malt prevailes in the flavor, with a buttery sweet aftertaste. Maybe it's cause I'm drinking this on a hot summer afternoon, but I like this stuff.

Pours clear light amber. Big off white head. Malty aroma of cookies, biscuits, light flowers. Moderately sweet malts, with just enough bitterness to cut am keep it from being cloying. Medium light and very carbonated mouthfeel, quite drinkable.

Color is a nice amber orange with a nice white head. Cant really put my finger on the aroma, kinda hoppy. The start has a rich nutty hoppiness that lasts throughout. The bitterness dies towards the finish leaving a pleasant and non-overbearing finish. The palate is a good balance between heavy and light. Another solid brew by the Matt brewery!

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2003
I am more than likely being a little too generous with my rating on this beer. However I found it to be quite pleasing for an amber. A nice bitter/sweet flavor with a semi good carbonation. Now this is not a great amber like garrison quoted, but it is quite good. Full body, but not as complex as the brewing company said it would be. None of the beers that I have tried from this company were great, but rather standard. I had higer expectations for it, but oh well.

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.
