"Bound to satisfy".
Current description: 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. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!
Previous description: Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added.

Ei niinkään ihmeiden olut. Kaunis kyllä, mutta maku melkoisen hirveä. Pistävä ja tunkkainen. Maratonjumiin.
