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.

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.

thegreenrooster (4146) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is pale malts and a bit of lagery wet paper bag. Flavor is more with the dryish pale malt and more of the wet paper bag. Taste awfully like a lager without being one.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2014
You see what it says on the label? Well thats pretty well on the nose and you add the facet that it looks like the archetypal golden/blonde ale with a bit more body. Kind of like the barmaid with a bit more on the back axle that youd still crawl over broken glass with your fly open for. Names have been hereafter excluded... Bex*. *May or may not be her real name.

CanIHave4Beers (4136) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a nice lightly hazy golden with A big head & lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bright, lightly fruity, a touch husky & a little coppery.

The flavor is modestly bitter, but nicely so. Everything is well balanced between mild hop fruitiness & nice toasty malt. Its mild but its very pleasant.

Bamsen78 (5168) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of hops, fruit and malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with fruity and floral notes. Medium carbonation. A little rough finish, with traces of needles and hops. Slightly watery but OK.
