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

Cask Conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury.
Pale gold colour with bubbly white head. Another move at converting the lagerboy crowd, but this one is much better than most. Heaps of citric flavours going on, I agree with lemon and grapefruit with a subtle but filling malt. Hoppy bitterness towards the end, this is a good satsfying beer which may miss its target audience. Good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 Cask handpump at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden colour with slim white head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy, sweet & fruity flavour. Light bodied. Good session beer.

Very nice, probably the best Cask beer in the time I have beern in The U.K., sweet, but sour and strange atthe same time. Like if it had wheat, I bet it does.

harrisoni (19695) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Cask handpull at Bridge House, Southwark. Gold colour, thin white head. Farty green apple yeasty aroma, thin in mouth with some apple fruit and lemon citrus and some hop on end. Lacks depth and that aroma....

fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2005
Cask Conditioned
Copper color. Light aroma, disappears quickly. Medium structure, strong herbal hop taste, hop resins. The bitterness develops more at the end, hoppy, peculiar. Refreshing and good.

Cask Conditioned at Mahar’s in Albany, NY. Didn’t like this one so much, had a soapy taste that wasn’t pleasant.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2005
Cask conditioned from Mill Inn Aldeburgh (15/08/05). Drunk during the Aldeburgh carnival whilst wandering around the town- a pleasant setting which the beer didnt detract from (or add to) in any way. Over yeasty/fruity. Grassy hops and only a hint of citrus. Drinkable refreshing blond.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2005
Cask. Fairly sweet aroma. Not as hoppy as I expected from the description of the US hops used. Grassy hop flavour, slightly sweet malts. A little thin, but not a bad session beer.

Ungstrup (39078) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2005
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and malty, while the flavor is very hoppy and grassy - which makes it a very refreshing beer.

3.7
MiP (16082) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
Cask. Bright golden colour, big-bubbled head. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavour is also very hop aromatic. Nice bitterness. Flowery aftertaste. Very nice ale.
