COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
"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.

(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, 20121103) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, fruitiness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A good example of an English bitter.

Butelka 500 ml. Zloty kolor piana srednia biala. Aromat cytrusow chmielow trawy grejfrutow. Smak podobny orzezwiajaca dawka cytrusow i chmielu. Wszystko bylo by ok gdyby nie smak i zapach ktory pojawia sie w glebi...jakby scieki albo moczu...

0.5 l bottle from England. Nice, deep golden color with almost no head. Hoppy, fruity aroma & taste with a medium bitterness. Refreshing

DylansDad (519) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2016
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.

digopossobon (372) - MACAE, BRAZIL - DEC 25, 2015
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.

djoeye (2886) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2015
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]

BeerNinjaUK (54) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours slightly greenish pale amber with watery head. Aroma very lacking - slightly citrussy but no depth and rather faint. Richer taste with good bitterness from the hops, albeit with a rather astringent edge. Both orange fruit and blossom come through in the flavour.

The_Osprey (4887) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2015
Clear 500ml bottle, 4.4%, BB June 2016 so presumably quite fresh. Clear light amber, sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma has some mild cheddar, damp and some tangerine in the background. Not as bad as I’m making it sound. Body is medium, rounded and a little foamy. Taste is biscuity malts, some citrus zest and resin, clean and crisp with a soft bitterness. Drying lagery finish with some metal tang. Decent enough.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 50cl bottle. Appearance - golden with a thin head. Nose - a bit butterscotch to be honest. Then it clears and there’s honey and a grassy note. Taste - a bit fresher. Some citrus as well as the honey. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be fresher. Overall - not worth getting another.
