Bottle 50cl. Poured into a footed Pilsner glass. Slightly unclear medium golden, small foamy off-white head, mostly diminishing, good lacing; aroma malty, orange, tangerine, biscuit, grass; taste is medium sweet and bitter, malty, fruity, with average duration, mild bittersweet finish, light fruitiness; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation; not really a Pilsner but a very fresh and pleasant Lager indeed.

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 it’s actually quite nice, very refreshing.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Sweet lager, underwhelming. Prefer some butterscotch in a decent pils. By far and away the least enjoyable Allendale beer I’ve had.

Hmmm... Somehow, I expected this to have been rated a little higher by other raters. It’s 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.

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 it’s 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.
