COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Sept 2006: First time I have had the bottled version. Different animal to the cask beer I drink when in Southwold. This blonde beer should be cooled before serving, which is unusual for a British beer. The New World hops Chinook and Columbus give the beer its name. Light and refreshing, it is, but the bottle says citrus and grapefruit aromas, not sure I got those, but overall, a fine beer for a hot sunny day.

500ml bottle – drunk chilled as instructed on bottle – strong flora and fruit, quite highly carbonated – chilling does knock back the aroma a bit. Sweet taste and drinkable if not entirely memorable. Nice enough.

Perhaps I’m being overly generous, but I rather like it. It’s by no means a world-beater, but as a session beer it’s certainly pleasant enough. It’s the beer I go to for a drink while I ponder what to have that’s interesting.

light body, white foam, fizzy, clear, golden standard blonde beer. Not a standout beer but easy to drink and not at all unpleasant

niquillis (1208) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle from Tesco. Pours golden with a thin head. Sour citrus, bit too fizzy. Quite Belgian in style in my opinion. OK.
