The Adder Lager is slow fermented and traditionally lagered at 00C for 8 weeks. This is a crisp, refreshing pilsner style lager. A perfect drink for summer BBQs.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours golden with a small but long lasting white head. Aroma is floral, lemon or maybe orange, corn, malts, hops. Mildly bitter-sweet flavour, some floral notes again. Overall its actually quite nice, very refreshing.

niquillis (2147) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Sweet lager, underwhelming. Prefer some butterscotch in a decent pils. By far and away the least enjoyable Allendale beer Ive had.

Hmmm... Somehow, I expected this to have been rated a little higher by other raters. Its been around for ages, and seems fairly well thought of locally, in the North East of England, with beer people I talk to. I just never got round to it, not finding it on draught until installed at the Fat Hippo in Newcastle: I had a pint and a half there last night. Beautiful bright gold, with a white head that faded to leave lacing around the glass. Digestive biscuit and floral aroma. Well balanced bitter-sweet flavour, again with floral notes. Definitely crisp and refreshing, and fuller bodied than most pilsners. Given my affection for this style of beer, I found this an unalloyed pleasure, but I can understand others might be a bit more critical, and underwhelmed.

Draught at the fat hippo underground. Slightly cloudy straw colour. No real aroma. Taste is crisp and refreshing.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Lime, biscuity malt and grain in the aroma. Lemon, lime, tea and some earthy notes in the taste. Drinkable enough, but I feel its lacking something overall.

Keg at The Free Trade Inn, Byker. Hazy straw yellow with little to no head. Aromas of cooked corn and straw. Taste has more of the same, and a very faint bitterness. OK lager.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours clear and golden - the head disappears fairly quickly. The nose has a touch of citrus but mainly its green beans and sweetcorn. The taste has more of the same. The palate is as expected, fairly one dimensional but at least very refreshing. Not a bad lager.

Creamy soda nose, weak head even with a few consistent streams of carbonation in a mustard yellow body. Half mast hops, very mealy malt backbone crumbling to a watery finish. I thought I would dodge uninspiring 5% lagers here.

Keg, Hanging Bat, Edinburgh
