"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 Hilpe 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.

Bottle 500ml, helder en goudbruin van kleur, ruikt en smaakt naar citrus en bloemetjes, lichtbittere hoppige afdronk met citrustonen. Romige schuimkraag. Een van de lekkerste bieren die Badger te bieden heeft. Mooi flesje ook.

500 ml clear bottle bought at Market Place by Jasons in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear golden bronze colour; One and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing and active small carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of ale malt, with initial skunk (1 minute), strong floral, honey, peaches, lemonade, earth, bread, lemon and strong grass; Mid to strong sweet taste of fair Ale malt, with honey, grains, caramel, strong floral, molasses, dry biscuits, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass; Mid to light body. Dry and slick palate; Mouth feel is fairly good Pale maltymess in a slightly thinned background. Light but persistent honey and floral set the tone. Pretty grainy, quite sweet but well countered by strong sharp lemony hops. Crisp and pretty nice! Hoppiness is strong floral, honey, peaches, lemonade, earth, lemon and grass in nose. Lemon, strong floral and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for an abrupt, high astringent sweet floral finish; Dry after taste. Floral sweet and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one feel slightly poppy, as its body is quite lean with some light honey taste, the hops shines in taste as storng lemon bitterness, and the fruity hops aroma isnt as strong as I wish. Easy to enjoy and good for meals.
