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. Now limited release in keg to J D Wetherspoon outlets.

Taste of peach, orange, some grapefruit, some sponge cake, slight bready malts and subtle spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A sweetish, soft citrus and floral hop bitterness in the finish. A fruity, citrusy golden ale, a little sweet with only a subtle floral hop bitterness but it quite sessionable. Decent.
