COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Forest Hare is distinctive and ground breaking beer that is proving a hit with Bath Ales’ old friends and new fans in equal measure - something due in no small part to our brewer’s choice of the very best imported New Zealand hops. Forest Hare contains wheat and barley malt. 3.9% abv

AshtonMcCobb (2838) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2014
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - big toffee note. Taste - more toffee and just a touch of nuts. Almost praline. Palate - close to medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - decent bitter but I like mine more biscuity.

RhetoricalAns (345) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Draft. Another middle of the road bitter from my trip in Oxford. Malt was a bit more prominent than other examples but less fruit or floral depth. Generally some spice comes through however.

Cask, The Corn Exchange, Leicester. Hazy gold with an off white foam. Aromas are leafy and spicy with apple and lemon. Earthy and herbal with base biscuit and marmalade. Flavours are lemon and blackberry with mixed spices and slightly green hedgerow. Peppery on the finish with spritzy yeast. Pretty good.
