The Hell-Cat review starts here

Label: Take a trip way back to my number 54 review of White Rabbit’s Dark Ale and you’ll note the labels are very similar. Back then, this is what I had to say: ‘I really like this label. It’s a paper label with a matte finish and this has sold me immediately. Combine that with the fact the label depicts a beautifully tranquil forest scene, and we have a real winner. There are grand old trees standing beside a bubbling brook, with inviting leafy surrounds on either side. Amidst all this greenery and serenity, you can just spot a tiny white rabbit, leading us to believe this beer is a real treasure to be found amidst a sea of beers currently on the market. Ahh the serenity’.
The major difference here, with the White Ale is that there is now a purple glow on the scenery, indicating night, and the tiny rabbit has moved. It evokes a real ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel to it, not deterred in the least by the yellow the dominates the label. Love it.

I give it a label rating of 8 out of 10.

AROMA: Wheaty with a tinge of what I suspect is nutmeg, and other spices. Smells great.

White Rabbit White Ale - GLASS

Taste: GLASS – This is one very, very delicious drop. It’s flowing with hoppy sweetness and wheaty characteristics. It’s like a more refined, modern take on Hoegaarden. This reincarnation is more subtle, more wholesome, more loving.

I give it a beer from glass rating of 8.5 out of 10.

Taste: BOTTLE – Not as good by any means. It has now become a little watery, less flavoursome, and a bit more bloaty. Don’t spoil this fine drop by drinking from the bottle, stick to the glass.

I give it a taste from bottle rating of 6.5 out of 10.

Accompanying food: I’m thinking some sort of tomato-based dish would sit well with this.

Best season to appreciate: A great outdoor, Summer by the sea kind of brew.

All-nighter beer? For sure! Buy this stuff by the caseload if you see it for a good price.

NEXT WEEK: TBC (any suggestions?)

    White Ale tasted like diluted draught to Radio, with a pinch of Duck à l’Orange spice mix piffed in. Radio found it highly refreshing after an evening of letterbox immmolation. Nine out of ten.
