Independent brewer Hall & Woodhouse’s Badger Beer brand has launched a seasonal beer called Red Ramble.
The new expression is said to take its inspiration from the autumnal woodland walks across Dorset and the vivid colours that the leaves provide at this time of year.
At 4% ABV, Red Bramble has a “deep biscuit-malt taste” from the crystal rye, crystal malt and small amount of chocolate malt, as well as a “distinctive hop character” derived from the Jester and Amarillo hops.
The pump clip uses warm autumnal hues, a wood effect print and the Dorset coastline to remind drinkers of the beauty of this stretch of coastline and the endless walks it offers.
The beer is available on cask in select Hall & Woodhouse public houses across the south of England, from September until November, supported by branded glassware and PoS kits including posters and tent cards.
Toby Heasman, head brewer for Badger Beer, said: “We are delighted to be launching our new ruby red seasonal beer, Red Ramble, for autumn drinkers.
“Red Ramble is designed to be a great lunchtime or evening beer, and despite being 4% ABV, the complexity of the malt grist makes for a full-bodied mouth-feel.”
In addition to Red Ramble, the Badger cask range comprises: The Legendary Tangle Foot, Fursty Ferret and Badger Best Bitter, available exclusively in Hall & Woodhouse’s pub estate across the South of England.
Tangle Foot, Fursty Ferret, Golden Champion, Hopping Hare, The Cranborne Poacher, and The Blandford Fly are also available in 500ml glass bottles, while Tangle Foot and Fursty Ferret are available in 500ml cans.
Badger also has a new crafted beer called The Wicked Wyvern, available in 330ml cans and on keg in the Hall & Woodhouse estate.
