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 BBQ’s.

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours clear and golden - the head disappears fairly quickly. The nose has a touch of citrus but mainly it’s 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.

A pleasant lager, It’s aroma is a little bitter, but it’s taste is very crisp and refreshing.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Light haze on this gold beer, no real head. Light dry palate, very mild fine carbonation. Mild orange citrus with a little honey. Pretty dry finish. Okay. More of a low carbonation golden than a lager. Bit too dry.

This lager with an interesting brewing process is certainly crisp and easy to drink.

Pale and malty with a little bite. Tastes like San Miguel. Only cheaper and slightly less fizzy. Fair enough I suppose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first lager in cask form. Medium light gold with a solid white lasting lacy head. Smels of flowers, malt and honey. Thing light flat body. Taste of wood, vanilla, and some malt. Doesnt taste like a ale.

Tasted this in the Three Judges, Glasgow in July 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thick foam white head.. Clean, zesty floral hop in the short aroma. thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Lager malts gives a sweet flavour of glycerine fruit only. Hops make an impact with strong citrus fruit notes in the aftertaste. Strong cereal flavour in the smooth finish. Much better effort from Allendale with this cask lager.
