Independent UK-based brewer Bath Ales has announced the reintroduction of its strongest ever beer in time for the Easter period.
The 5.2% alcohol by volume (ABV) Rare Hare is described as “a smooth premium beer that is full in flavour, dry and clean on the palate”. Available in limited quantities, it will be available in store and on tap – as well as online 500ml bottles – while stocks last.
“First developed by Bath Ales’ head brewer in 2002, the chestnut-coloured beer offers drinkers a dry, bitter taste with a hint of caramel and an aroma that is topped off with toffee notes,” the company said. Pre-order sales were “already rising fast,” the brewer added.
Bath Ales head brewer Gerry Condell said: “The appeal of Rare Hare lies in its smooth taste and each time it is released it proves very popular with our customers.
“The limited availability of Rare Hare, as well as its delicious taste, means that it is highly anticipated before it hits the pumps.”
The reintroduction was announced a month after the company revealed it would relaunch its Golden Hare ale across its pubs between early February and April; it is a 4.4% ABV beer brewed using floor-malted Maris Otter barley and Goldings hops.
