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 (1511) - 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.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
Amber colour, with good lasting head. Looks, smells and tastes like a bitter, no better, but no worse.

Bottle. High fluffy and lasting white head. Clear golden amber body. Powerful barley malt hay straw aroma Sweet at first, later on bitterness takes over. Does however seem a bit waterty. Low carbonation, short aftertaste.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2009
(Bottled) Clear golden-copper with a small, firm and lacy, white head. Witbier-like aroma of lemony hops, wheat and some yeasty spiciness. Flavor has a Belgian Blonde feel with yeasty fruitiness, pale malt, pear notes, and flowery-grassy hops. Almost medium body with medium, slightly foamy carbonation. This was quite a surprise despite the creepy "Serve chilled" in the label... along with Seriously/Criminally Bad Elf, one of the most Belgian brews from England so far. I kinda like.
