Independent brewer Hall & Woodhouse is launching a new seasonal ale from Badger Beer called The Dorset Horn.
With an ABV of 4.2%, The Dorset Horn is a “straw-coloured” pale ale which has been brewed with Fuggles hops.
The name Dorset Horn hails from the indigenous Dorset sheep breed, renowned for thriving in Badger Beer’s heartland on the pastures of the South West. It is known mostly for its prolific lambing as it is the only sheep breed that can breed all year round.
The new seasonal beer will be available on cask in select Hall & Woodhouse public houses across the south of England from February until April and will be supported by PoS kits.
Toby Heasman, head brewer for Badger Beer, said: “The Dorset Horn is a wonderfully pale refreshing beer with an acutely defined hop character.
“Fuggles hops are loaded towards the end of the boil in the Brewhouse to maximise the aroma and then additional Fuggles dry hops are carefully added to the fermenter to accentuate the floral hop notes. As a light beer, it pairs very well with both fish and chicken dishes.”
