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.

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.

A golden orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light citrusy hop aroma, elements of lemon, grapefruit and orange plus a background hint of biscuity malt. Dry mouthfeel. A strong bitter tasting beer with citrusy peel, again, lemon, grapefruit and Seville orange. This is bolstered by an underlying biscuity malt flavour, a tad sweeter that balances the flavour into a lingering finish.

Aurelius (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Light oakwood tan, good bowling pin bottle, clean label. Liked the aroma. Yeast and malt actually trump the west coast hops, caramel notes come through. Flavor was a little oxidized. Not fruity, moderately bitter, fairly dry. Decent session fare, missing some hallmarks I look for in a Brit ESB. Beer Stop.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2014
500ml bottle into a nonic. Pours a hazy dark gold with a fluffy one finger white head. Very fine, soft carbonation bubbles that remind me almost of a nitro pour. Good lacing and retention. Aroma is very yeasty with that classic British toffee and hay. Some touches of lemon. Nothing particularly outstanding, though. The flavor has delicate bread and wet hay with notes of toffee. A little bit of tartness that seems out of place. A touch of lemon and apple. Very light bitterness but not enough to clean everything up. Finishes a bit sweet. Overall, an ok beer but I was expecting better. Not sure the age on this bottle but I imagine this beer is much better from the cask.

1.9 fl oz bottle pours hazy orange showing light sediment and plenty carbonation. Aroma is a mix of citrus/grapefruit hops and a champagne/cider like aroma from the yeast. Taste follows, light on tongue with plenty carbonation. Light body and crisp carbonation almost like a cider, light fruity hop characteristics and no malt. Leaves your palate imparting no memory of the experience, quite boring.

cmacklin (1377) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Sweet, fruity, hoppy aroma with notes of straw. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and citrus with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

PorterPounder (8364) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 500 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange with a sticky white head and nice lacing. Aroma has a hint of peppermint, a light touch of pine. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some faint light citrus bitter notes, a touch of peppermint, a touch of pear frutiness. Nice smooth, clean mouthfeel. Solid ESB. Very sessionable.

3.3
Strykzone (7806) - 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.
