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.

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.

Theydon_Bois (13456) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
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 (4790) - 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 (2181) - 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.

Bottle from Pangaea Bottle Shop. Pours hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is primarily bready. At best a hint of citrus. Med body. Flavor is sort of kolsch bready with some citrus/grapefruit hints. It finishes moderately, or less, bitter.

reebtogi (4962) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruity with hints of citrus and cereal grains. Taste is a sharp citrusy bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with modest carbonation leaving a nice tickle on the tongue. A nicely done blonde ale which is very full and flavorful and recommended.

pintbypint (3012) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
500ml brown bottle. 5% abv on label. Golden and clear in the glass. White head, fairly creamy foam and decent lacework. Nose has citrusy orangey hops with some malt sweetness. Taste has a pretty solid malt character, fruity up front, notes of orange and some grapefruit. Some bitterness lingers, a bit of grass and fairly big grapefruity/citrus hops in the aftertaste. Light body, soft mouthfeel. A nice beer, more hops that expected. .
