Draught at The Green Lion Inn, Malmölarsga (7540) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Blond color. It has some aroma of cereals. It’s lowly carbonated, with some cereals flavor, low bitterness; flat in all ways. Simple.
Small white head. Clear golden body with carbonation. Light floral citric perfumy aroma with strawy notes. Dry-sweet caramelly perfumy taste with fruity spicy notes. Mod-bodied. Sharpish, salty mouthfeel. Dry strawy fruity aftertaste with orangey notes. Nice, drinkable, not great. (0.5l bottle, from Co-op, Whitby.)

Shared this bottle @ benzai. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Smells marijuana, caramel, sweet, (Dutch: hopjes). Tastes watery, some caramel.. Bizarre sidetaste.. A mix between mushrooms and the stem of a marijuana bud. Also quite bitter. Thin body, soft carbo. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2013

"Thrice hopped". Doesn’t that sound so much more elegant than "triple hopped"? British english may be more beautiful than american english, but the use of hops in the British brewing tradition is a bit dull compared to what we’ve become used to in the modern hop-driven US brew scene, in my humble opinion. This certainly goes for the Thrice Hopped Hopping Hare. Sure there are some hoppy notes to be found in the moderate aroma, but these rather overripe fruity notes and vague citric hints are not at all especially refreshing, and they are definitely outshone by the malty components. Sweet caramel, toffee and bready notes are the masters of this brew. The taste too has lots of malty sweetness, but luckily there is a moderate to light bitterness in the finish that balances the sweet feel. The moderate flavours follow the aroma, maybe with a tad more overripe citrus, especially initially and mid-palate. Once again I’m impressed by the mouthfeel of such a fairly low ABV beer, the Thrice (sorry, love that word, got to use it as often as possible) Hopped Hopping Hare has a medium body and a smooth, pleasant and softly carbonated mouthfeel. A good one. Thrice as good as the worst bitter I’ve had. bersek (108) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2013
