A full flavoured beer with a subtle refreshing citrus flavour.
Created by Adnams’ Master Brewer, this pale yet full flavoured beer is made using a blend of East Anglian malted barley and wheat. Boadicea and First Gold hops from England and Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand combine to create the subtle citrus notes and refreshing flavour.

maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottled 12/11/12. A golden coloured beer which poured with no head. Citrussy fruity with a soapy element. Peach and tropical fruits in the mouth. A bit of sticky marmalade. Not bad.

Beese (3064) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2017
500ml bottle from M&S, Watford. A delicate aroma, with some floral hop notes. Overall just a bit too light to be much more than pleasant.

miniash891989 (137) - - JUL 12, 2017
Bottled, had at home. Typical blonde, nice and hoppy. Fairly unremarkable but equally enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SilkTork (5801) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle. Bought by Piers for the Greenwich Park picnic. Yes, a drinkable beer. This is a little better than Adnam’s own Explorer. Nicely balanced.

Rubin77 (2481) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 10, 2017
F: thin, white, quick gone. C: gold, clear. A: malt, citrus, tangerine, hint of tropical fruits, passion fruits, caramel. T: malt, citrus, grassy, tangerine, gooseberries, medium body, low carbonation, nice balanced beer, 0,5l bottle from M&S in Brussels.

downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber, with a decent, white, head. Aroma of citrus hops, stone fruits and grainy malts. Flavour had more fruits, a slight yeastiness, biscuity mlats and a decent, bitter, finish. Enjoyable.

Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2016
500ml. Full flavored blonde ale. Not really to my preference though. Sherbety lemon and maybe banana on the nose. Hoppy flavors of citrus and pine without being at all bitter. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Quite good.

ManVsBeer (10927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Halifax. Tawny-gold with a thin head. Hopped with a slightly dirty taste, there’s a sugary sweetness in the nose with some caramel here as well as its flavour.

rosenbergh (11753) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
500 ml bottle. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Belgian style yeastiness, sweet maltiness and fruity hops in the aroma. Metallic notes, Belgian yeast and sweet maltiness in the flavour. Very low carbonation. Was this really an American Pale Ale?

imdownthepub (15131) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Bottled 500ml from Marks & Spencer in Banbury. Gold with white head. There is a thin corny note to this, hints of caramelisation, a slight herby hint perhaps. Thin throughout but ok.

The_Osprey (8682) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
500ml bottle BB 09/15. Orange amber, clear, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light citrus, lime, gooseberry. Body is medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is very light, watery, some minerals but mostly just water. Served chilled as suggested on the bottle, but this removed all flavour.
