COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

Pored this one into a pint glass. The aroma is citrus and the appearance is cloudy gold with a white head. The flavor is grapefruit with a bitter finish. It flows across the palate with a carbonated start then glides smooth to finish. Overall another nice beer from Adnams.

Strykzone (4930) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pint bottle. Hazy golden and a white head. A fruity and malty aroma. This is a little different from other ESBs I have had. Nice tropical fruit that is somehow candied and sulfury bitter hops. Earth and dryness. Yeast and floral notes come late and the finish is a bit medicinal. A decent brew.

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 30, 2014
Golden color with a white head with good retention. Aroma has notes of citrus and fresh hops. Flavor is slightly bittery, notes of citrus and slightly malty with resins hints. The final has a light bitterness with short duration.

ContemplateBeer (1540) - 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.

Bottle at Sarah’s house. Adnams fest. Golden coloured pour with a thin fleeting white head. Aroma is hay, light lemon, some mineral and English yeast. Flavour is crisp lemon, hay, bisvuity malt and English yeast esters. Palate is light and refreshing. Moderate high carbonation. Decent.

Belle couleur cuivre clair Mousse peu persistante Nez peu marque un peu poussiereux Gout marque d agrume de houblon americain Palais agreable carbonnation equilibree Une Lager ou une Ale? Une lager comme beaucoup devrait prendre exemple comme produits a la fois plaisant et "facile" d acces.
