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.

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

worldbeertaste (1704) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
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.

tombyars (1425) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2011
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.

On cask at The Bow Bar Summer Beer Festival, 2011. A light blonde colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of sweet musty honey. Tar and rubber flavours with barley, honey and light caramel notes. A wet cardboard flavour also. Very low carbonation for a lager.

Cask (handpump) @ Market Porter, 9 Stoney Street, Southwark, London, Greater London, England SE1 9AA.

Clear medium yellow colour with a small, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, toasted, hay, fruity, light hoppy, grass. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, acrid fruity bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20110618]

Cask@Market Porter, London. Slightly hazy yellow colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, vanillaish and mildly vanilaish. Flavour is being quite much the same in a nice balance. Is this really a pils? Tastes more like a golden ale to me.

thewolf (11297) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2011
Cask @ Market Porter, London.
Pours clear golden with a smal, creamy off-white film head. Mild aroma, some metal and malty, maize-like sweetness. Medium carbonation, a bit thin and too flat. Flavour is very sweet, lots of pilsner malts, light sugary. Very mild grassy bitterness. Not impressive.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: sweet pale malts, bit of honey, herbal and grassy hop, minerally sweetness, but not sulphury. Interesting.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2009
Pours carbonated clear copper with a pure white foam head. Aroma is bitter hops and straw/wheat. Tasts is very similar to a czech style pilsner lager, plenty of bitter herbal hops, straw, grass and a dry bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Pretty tasty, and unusual to find such a well made lager.
