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.

sm89walt (1972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2011
500ml bottle. A fluffy & slowly disappearing white head, medium in size, atop a clear yellow body. Slightly grainy, lemon & summer berry aromas. Again the berry on the tongue with a floral note & a zesty, though moderate bitterness. Fairly light & crisp body with medium carbonation.

ComradeK (1145) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a pleasant mid-amber, with a very minimal head and next to no lacing. There is a very strong caramel aroma on the nose, with very little detectable hop presence. This all changes as one begins to drink. There are some very strong floral hops to begin, with a little sweet malt. Those hops mix nicely with some prickly carbonation on the palate, moving into a sweet malt finish. A fairly decent bitter, although it tastes more like a standard bitter than an ESB to me.

Plovmand (7882) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2010
Clear amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is light metallic, fruity and quite hoppy. The flavour is hops, fruit, citrus, caramel and light metal. Long bitter finish.

500 ml bottle. 5.0%. From København, Denmark.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Sweetish exotic fruity hoppy aroma. Flavour is also slightly sweet fruity hoppy. Tea-like fruitiness and quite mild bitterness. Easy-to-drink and refreshing.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2010
500ml bottle. Bright golden amber colour with a modest even layer of white foam. Grapefruit aromas abound with an earthiness hidden behind. Fresh, crisp and light on the palate with a slightly citrus flavour before a strong bitterness kicks in.

floydian1 (1362) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 12, 2010
500ml bottle (expiry 23Jul2010) served chilled. A bubbly golden-orange beer with a medium just off-white head of good duration and lacing. Aroma of honey malts and fruity hops (oranges, grapefruits). Tongue is slightly sweet with a nice bitter citrus hop finish that lingers. Light-medium bodied with a slick texture and average carbonation and easy drinkability. A decent refreshing Summer bitter.
