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.

pintbypint (3483) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 25, 2012
500ml brown bottle. 5% abv on label. Golden and clear in the glass. White head, fairly creamy foam and decent lacework. Nose has citrusy orangey hops with some malt sweetness. Taste has a pretty solid malt character, fruity up front, notes of orange and some grapefruit. Some bitterness lingers, a bit of grass and fairly big grapefruity/citrus hops in the aftertaste. Light body, soft mouthfeel. A nice beer, more hops that expected. .

Clear deep golden color with a fine thick off white head. Ok lacing. Looks good and inviting. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation level. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Caramel malty, toffee, fruity and herbal flavor. Solid bitter.

500ml bottle from East of England Co-Op Foodstore, shared with Cunningham on the train from Norwich to Chelmsford. Clear amber coloured body. Covering white head. Caramel malty nose. Malt-fruity flavours of orange, dough and toffee. Rounded bittersweet tail. True to the style and pretty alright. (18.02.2017).

500ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Ugh, messy sweet sticky aroma, perfumey, mushroomy, even stale and mouldy, not good. Similarly perfumey taste, but less of the unpleasant aspects. Medium palate, some sweet fullness, some resiny bitter hint, carbonation pleasant enough. Just about drinkable, as long as you dont have to smell it.

Quite boring for bitter. Low herbal naphthalene, some grass, kinda vegies. Ligth sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Nothing to repeat

500ml bottle from Ken Warne, Darlington. Golden amber colour with a white foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of orangey citrus hop aroma. Taste is malt, caramel, toffee, orange citric, floral hop with resiny and tangy bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering bitter finish. Quite OK.

bottle @ Liquor Barn / Lexington KY --- Aroma of malt and light caramel. Cloudy medium amber, rocky off-white head that stays at one-finger, streaks of lace. Taste is malt and caramel that grows into mild fizz followed closely by light hops. The hops yield to semi-sweet caramel in a medium finish. Very well balanced, light in the belly, and satisfying. This one I could enjoy every day. Ill search for it in the future.
