COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

Bottle 500 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Golden-amber, with a short off-white foam, flegmatic crackling. Aromas of malt, citrus hop, toffee, slight roasted. The mouth is creamy, a bit sticky, biscuity malt with a nice bitterness of citrus, pine resin, green fruits and spiceds. Lasting bitterness.

fuzzyhead (7) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015 does not count
Very poor, misleading with the "new world hops" tag, no world hops would be more apt. Taste is extremely bland, slightly bitter and quite fizzy. Kind of like the larger I used to drink before I found great real ales.

Hazy gold with a rich white foam. Rich malty aroma. Full but balanced between tje malty sweetnes and the hoppy bitterness with notes of citrus. Syropy texture with mild carbonation.

rubbishystuff (2149) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Another beer I’m kind of on the fence about, what it a good refreshing summery ale or was it blandish. I’m going to give this one the benefit of the doubt as well. Serving: Bottle

Bottle from Aldi, Carrick-on-Shannon [240615]
Amber, clear, good fluffy white head
Aroma of soft citrus zest, touch of lemon and grapefruit, slight earthy malt, overall soft nose
Taste of caramel, soft citrus zest, hint of earthy bitter hops, mellow hops in this, some biscuit malts
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, slightly oily. Finish is a bit dry, soft sweet malt, mellow citrus zest, clean, easy palate
Overall - Quite quaffable but a tad dull - still a bit better than average supermarket beer
