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."

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. .

ContemplateBeer (1526) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Aroma: Light caramel and a little cider; some juicy citrus notes, lemon, lightly spiced. Appearance: Hazy royal gold with a a solid white head that fades into a sticky, bubbly skin. Flavor: Lemon/citrusy notes up front with pleasant caramel more prevalent toward the finish; lingering herbal bitterness finishes things out. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: I enjoyed this; just enough abstraction from the English tradition to make things interesting.

thegreenrooster (3189) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is pale malts and a bit of lagery wet paper bag. Flavor is more with the dryish pale malt and more of the wet paper bag. Taste awfully like a lager without being one.

Jimthechap (1610) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2014
You see what it says on the label? Well thatís pretty well on the nose and you add the facet that it looks like the archetypal golden/blonde ale with a bit more body. Kind of like the barmaid with a bit more on the back axle that youíd still crawl over broken glass with your fly open for. Names have been hereafter excluded... Bex*. *May or may not be her real name.

CanIHave4Beers (3212) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a nice lightly hazy golden with A big head & lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bright, lightly fruity, a touch husky & a little coppery.

The flavor is modestly bitter, but nicely so. Everything is well balanced between mild hop fruitiness & nice toasty malt. Itís mild but itís very pleasant.
