COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Adnams Explorer captures the spirit of discovery by blending Chinook and Columbus hops with the New World. The citrus attack will burst on your palate. Fantastic served chilled and the fruity hoppiness of the beer means that it goes well with cleanly flavoured foods. Try it with salmon, vegetarian options and with summer salads. (Contains barley). Silver medal winner at the 2015 Great British Beer Festival. Bottle. Filtered and pasteurised.

Amber in colour has a thin head with some lacing on the glass. Smells of woody hops. Tastes of bitter malt a bit skunky but fairly smooth.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
(Bottle from the Co-op, Long Stratton, Norfolk - it’s 5% though not 5.5%, they knocked it down a while back) Pours an amber Golden with a large White head and lots of fast bubbles - a good looker. Fresh hop smell with citrus, lemon, some grass - a fairly strong pleasant aroma. Creamy head and bitter hop taste with lots of grassiness and a little citrus. Slight sweet but finishes moderately bitter. Fair carbonation. A good fresh lighter tasting ale, great for summer.

vanvenlo (1576) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2009
23 Oct 2006 - Very light roast malt aroma. Clear brown amber colour, lowish head and lacing. Sweet easy malt fruit and ash flavour. Hoppy tangy and light fruit finish. Another english cigarette ash hop finish/aftertaste. Perhaps this beer goes well, with a pub full of cigarette smoke.
