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.

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

danlo (2779) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
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.

rondphoto (4258) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 15, 2016
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.

I_LUV_BEER (223) - - MAY 12, 2016
Served in pint glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a big white head, leaving plenty of lacing in the glass. Aroma is slightly fruity, with notes of grass and a mild citrus. Taste is a well balanced combination of citrus hops and roasted malts. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very easy to drink, mild and pleasant. A nice thirst quencher!
