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."

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.

Scrapersnbeer (1501) - 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.

Nice beer, better than expected. Tastes like a helles. Not outstanding, just a sessionable good, tasty ale. I’d drink it again.

Braudog (5965) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle. Poured a golden, hazy, straw color, the head is big and rocky, unremitting. The aroma is musty, outdoorsy. This drinks with an almost American fruitiness, citric and acidic, almost grapefruity, but with a bit of European funk. Very nice. (#4990, 4/16/2013)

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2013
Pours bright gold with a lasting white head. Smells soapy with mild grass and floral aromas, reminiscent of spring, but with a little skunkiness underneath. Taste is somewhat subdued with some dry hoppiness coming through as citrus and a touch of mint. Not much of the malt flavor stands out in the flavor but it contributes to the body, making it more full than expected. The idea of an English brew done American style is interesting, but the end result seems to dumb down both ends of the equation.
