The new session-style Ease Up IPA has a lower abv (4.6%) than a full-strength US-style IPA and is said to be big on flavour, making it perfect for summertime. It is the latest addition to the Adnams ‘Jack Brand’ collection of craft beers. Following on, Juniper Saison (4.1% abv) is a pale golden, juniper-flavoured brew, made with lager malt and sorachi hops. It is said to feature aromas of spicy orange, infused with juniper spice, coriander, caraway and a hint of liquorice.

Samba City 2016 (4.2% abv) is a golden wheat beer brewed to celebrate the Rio 2016 Olympics, said to offer lively citrus aromas and hints of banana, finishing with creamy, spicy notes.
