3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml clear bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear golden bronze colour; One and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing and active small carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of ale malt, with initial skunk (1 minute), strong floral, honey, peaches, lemonade, earth, bread, lemon and strong grass; Mid to strong sweet taste of fair Ale malt, with honey, grains, caramel, strong floral, molasses, dry biscuits, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass; Mid to light body. Dry and slick palate; Mouth feel is fairly good Pale maltymess in a slightly thinned background. Light but persistent honey and floral set the tone. Pretty grainy, quite sweet but well countered by strong sharp lemony hops. Crisp and pretty nice!… Hoppiness is strong floral, honey, peaches, lemonade, earth, lemon and grass in nose. Lemon, strong floral and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for an abrupt, high astringent sweet floral finish; Dry after taste. Floral sweet and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one feel slightly poppy, as its body is quite lean with some light honey taste, the hops shines in taste as storng lemon bitterness, and the fruity hops aroma isn’t as strong as I wish. Easy to enjoy and good for meals.

Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma of citrus, lemon, honey on toast, grass, a bit of cereal. Taste is lemon, honeyed water, some orange. Slight metallic tang at the end thins out an already light body. OK.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Grassy. Low to medium intensity. I’m not impressed here.
A: Nice one. Golden and clear. A little bit sparkling. Beautiful head. White, good volume. Solid.
T: Small sweetness at beggining that evolves to good bitterness. Than it goes to a lightly sour finish. You can feel the hopps here.
P: Something between light and medium body. Long sour finish. Fizzy carbonation.
O: Interesting beer. A good choice if the price is ok.

Simple sharp zesty aroma. Similarly simple flavours. Light malt and a little citrus. Moderately sweet, light bitter finish. It’s OK.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Look; off white small head, clear golden body. Aroma; pale malts, leaves, some sweet notes. Taste; straw, pale malts, grass - leading to a short finish. On palate a bit watery. Overall; where were all those 3 hops? They’ve hopped away? [50cl clear shaped btl, abv4.4%, B@Kilpishalli]
