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.

ContemplateBeer (2006) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma: Light caramel and a little cider; some juicy citrus notes, lemon, lightly spiced. Appearance: Hazy royal gold with a a solid white head that fades into a sticky, bubbly skin. Flavor: Lemon/citrusy notes up front with pleasant caramel more prevalent toward the finish; lingering herbal bitterness finishes things out. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: I enjoyed this; just enough abstraction from the English tradition to make things interesting.

Belle couleur cuivre clair Mousse peu persistante Nez peu marque un peu poussiereux Gout marque d agrume de houblon americain Palais agreable carbonnation equilibree Une Lager ou une Ale? Une lager comme beaucoup devrait prendre exemple comme produits a la fois plaisant et "facile" d acces.

thegreenrooster (4030) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is pale malts and a bit of lagery wet paper bag. Flavor is more with the dryish pale malt and more of the wet paper bag. Taste awfully like a lager without being one.
