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

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.

Cask conditioned at The Grapes, Oxford. Copper with white head. This was heavily toffee’d, caramel in flavour, butterscotch with a dry bitterness, unfortunately I couldn’t get the New Zealand hops. Disappointing.
