Bottle. Filtered and pasteurised. Previously 5.5%. "Adnams Explorer is a light and refreshing blonde beer, with some citrus notes and grapefruit aromas. Fantastic served chilled. Adnams Explorer captures the spirit of discovery by blending Chinook and Columbus hops from the New World. The best in traditional brewing with a contemporary edge."

One of the nord interesting tasting beers. Very hoppy. Can definitely taste the pine of chinook hops in this beer.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of lightstrucked hops, light spicy with weak malts. Taste is moderate sweet malts, nice spicy hops at the end, tickeling mouthfeel, good one.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-13: En "East Coast Blonde" iflg etiketten, og det er ingen dum beskrivelse. Lite maltsmak, men desto klarere bitterhet preget av grapefrukt (som også kjennes i aromaen). Fin munnfylde og god ettersmak. Slett ingen dum blondine.

Shared 500 ml bottle at Cardinal. ABV is 5%. Clear light golden with a white film. Sweet floral notes and light malts on the nose. Smooth and light bodied. Mellow sweetness and a more prominent bitterness.

Not sure if export is different but only 5% listed on my bottle. Lightly hopped with a slight bitter aftertaste. Good length on the palate considering the style. Quite easy to drink

Bright clear golden ale, lots of pale hoppiness in its flavours and aroma too.

Bottle on the train to Edinburgh, cheers to JP for the pour - 08/12/12. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head that soon clears to the edge and leaves a pond. Nose carries peach, mandarin, light hops, pale malt, some yeast notes, sugars. Taste comprises mandarin, peach, hops, more subdued in taste that nose, some sugars. Medium bodied, light carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Average doings.

wlajwl (3875) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Aroma is citrus hops, bready malts and slightly perfumed. The flavor is malts, fruit, citrus hops and a definite English ale yeast in the finish.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2012
A solid little session bitter. The pour is a bright straw gold in body with a thick and soapy white head. THe nose is grainy with definite cereal notes, light citrus hops and not much else. A very basic grainy and light biscuit malts, light citrus hops and a grassy subtlety. The has actually got a mild bitterness and dry mouthfeel. Overall, nice brew, but nothing out of the ordinary.
