COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Hare is a classic American Pale Ale-richly hopped, fruity and floral. Munich malt nicely balances the assertive character of the U.S. Golding and Bravo hop varieties that give this brew its signature bitterness and aroma. Enjoy!

12 oz. bottle from Shiner. Pours a very clear, burnished gold malt color, under a slightly orangey and thick head. Smell brings on the hops, but in a mild way. Smell does bring in the hops, but in a gentle way. This is proclaimed to be the first ever ale from Shiner after 102 years of lagers, and the intent seems to be as a "gateway" from their lagers. Taste has slightly light malt, possibly some of it is balanced from the hops, but the overall effect is a lighter mouthfeel than the usual hop bombs. Hops are definitely American, with notes of citrus, pine and resin. Just not as powerful as the usual hop bomb. In other words, easy going and almost sessionable.

dark orange 1 finger consistent head that never fades. the nose is really interesting. like fresh pineapple and a little lactic acidity. taste though falls short. mild cream, some orange, pineapple and something else. a little yeasty and light tartness.

2/7 - Home (Bottle) - Decent Shiner offering. Somewhat strong, but a bit bland for an Pale Ale. Better than their standard offerings, and would have again if given the chance.

Brandon1989 (385) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a clear amber color with a thick off white head that left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is mixed between some hops and breadiness. I also pick up some fruit in this as well. The taste is very bready with some mild fruit. I do pick up a little bit of floral hops but its rather faint.

kramer (5213) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is just lightly hoppy, with caramel and toasty malt and a bit of graininess. The flavor is pretty bland and lacking in hops, and they arenít very bitter at all. More grainy and bland caramel malt than anything. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty bland stuff.

Floral hoppy malt aroma with a zesty character. Thin head on a deep amber body. Mild dry bitterness. Caramel malt base. Clean finish.
