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.

Lagerboy (1575) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear bright golden yellow, small foamy white head settles and lasts. Malty, fruity hop aroma. Citrus herbal hop taste, sweet malts, some faint spicy piney hints. Light carbonation and body. New World hops make it a less boring British bitter. Got a bit musty, sour and old towards the finish, be nice to try a fresh one. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Erzengel (5621) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2013
50cl. Thanks to Sean for this beer! The beer starts mild, very drinkable. the mainpart is mild as well, a bit too neutral. The aftertaste is not too long, a bit of typical Ale aroma is present, but not much. A bit malty sweetness, a bit "nothing". --> much too neutral, not mine. 7/12/6/6

AKSalmon (74) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
Pored this one into a pint glass. The aroma is citrus and the appearance is cloudy gold with a white head. The flavor is grapefruit with a bitter finish. It flows across the palate with a carbonated start then glides smooth to finish. Overall another nice beer from Adnams.

50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Gold with a small white head. Aroma is apples and spices. Flavor is cinnamon, apples, and hops. Moderate bitter finish, with lingering cinnamon. Nice brew. I've never tasted anything quite like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours amber, white head. Straw malt in the nose with berry, pretty bready flavour, a bit of paper, nice finish. Nice blend of c-hops with English characteristics, but I couldn’t help thinking that it would have been much better on cask, instead of from what was probably an old bottle.

lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 2, 2013
a bit of citrus, yeast, and metal. yeah, this one ain’t that good. watery as anything too. only a bit better than macro slosh (and bitter? where’s the malt?)

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2013
Soapy mellow citrus aroma, like a spring day or something like that. Hazy yellow color. Soft hoppy taste, smooth sweet malts. Very light body, smooth texture mostly covers a minor bite. Can’t tell if it’s better chilled, which bitters usually are not.
