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."

Bready and mild orange aroma. A reserved half inch head that fades to steady film. Body is a hazy orange with a hint of gold. Mild bitterness. Light orange taste with a mild breadiness for some thickness.Bubbly carbonation. In contrast it has a light dry finish.

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

Gurthnar (3011) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma lemony, citrusy, however also some stale flavour, which I associate with green bottles and would describe as light-struck, but might just come from heavy pasteurisation since it is a brown bottle. Clear golden colour and quickly disappearing head. The taste goes in the established direction, showing some promising hoppy flavours, but killing it in a few moments with the stale flavour. Average beer, really.

rubbishystuff (2028) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Another beer Iím kind of on the fence about, what it a good refreshing summery ale or was it blandish. Iím going to give this one the benefit of the doubt as well. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Blond with a frothy off white head. Metallic citrus aroma. The taste is soapy citrus with a little grapefruit and spice. Slightly syrupy texture. OK.
