Adnams Spindrift


Smaller bottle here, 330ml but a lively ‘rad’ label. 5%.

Light and refreshing but no massive flavouring, definitely one for the ‘lager’ boys and ‘not sure about ale’ people – it will suit most beer drinkers. Pours golden with a fairly long lasting head.

Good for BBQ sessions, but not for a night in savouring the wonders.

I thought this was going to be a stout.

Dark ruby colour with off white head with some lacing.

I get tones of fruit and liquorice. Smells bloody nice.

Tastes of summer berries, blackcurrants, etc. a slight bitterness too. The label states full flavoured but I was expecting more bang for my buck.

Not a bad drop but not amazing.


Adnams Broadside


I like Adnams Bitter, so give this one a go.

Surprisingly dark with a carbonated head. Smells of winter fruits and wintery sugary delights. This smells like a beer to have in December (or any month with the current UK climate) by the fire.

It tastes almost as I expected, caramely burntness but rather drier than I thought. Big strong flavours but nothing to make you say ‘urgh’

A little malty, with some hoppy maltyness – certainly a nice little dark beer. Certainly not for a hot August day, but lets face it, August days are generally more wet than hot…

Would drink again.
