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.

reebtogi (5762) - Edmonton, Alberta, - 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.

Quite boring for bitter. Low herbal naphthalene, some grass, kinda vegies. Ligth sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Nothing to repeat

danlo (2608) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
500ml bottle from Ken Warne, Darlington. Golden amber colour with a white foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of orangey citrus hop aroma. Taste is malt, caramel, toffee, orange citric, floral hop with resiny and tangy bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering bitter finish. Quite OK.

bottle @ Liquor Barn / Lexington KY --- Aroma of malt and light caramel. Cloudy medium amber, rocky off-white head that stays at one-finger, streaks of lace. Taste is malt and caramel that grows into mild fizz followed closely by light hops. The hops yield to semi-sweet caramel in a medium finish. Very well balanced, light in the belly, and satisfying. This one I could enjoy every day. I’ll search for it in the future.

Served in pint glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a big white head, leaving plenty of lacing in the glass. Aroma is slightly fruity, with notes of grass and a mild citrus. Taste is a well balanced combination of citrus hops and roasted malts. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very easy to drink, mild and pleasant. A nice thirst quencher!

Fukito (1022) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 19, 2016
Light gold with a white rim. Aroma is honeyish malt with some herbal hops. Flavor is sweet maltiness with some fruity esthers and a touch of flowery hops. Medium to light palate. Not memorable, but not bad for what it is.

En let frugtagtig lugt med noter af blommer. Meget humlet i smagen og lidt sødlig.

De couleur blonde la mousse et blanche avec une faible ténacité Au nez on va sentir des arômes de fruits blancs comme la pêche En août on va la sentir peu gazeuse avec une légère amertume qui vient en fin de bouche Une bière de soif correct
