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.

fuzzyhead (8) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015 does not count
Very poor, misleading with the "new world hops" tag, no world hops would be more apt. Taste is extremely bland, slightly bitter and quite fizzy. Kind of like the larger I used to drink before I found great real ales.

Hazy gold with a rich white foam. Rich malty aroma. Full but balanced between tje malty sweetnes and the hoppy bitterness with notes of citrus. Syropy texture with mild carbonation.

rubbishystuff (2312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Another beer Im kind of on the fence about, what it a good refreshing summery ale or was it blandish. Im going to give this one the benefit of the doubt as well. Serving: Bottle
