Badger Beer’s new ruby seasonal, Red Ramble, takes its inspiration from the autumnal woodland walks across Dorset and the vivid colours of the leaves at this time of year.
The 4% ABV beer has a deep biscuit malt taste from crystal rye, crystal malt and a small amount of comforting chocolate malt, as well as a distinctive hop character derived from Jester and Amarillo varieties.
The pumpclip uses warm autumnal hues, a wood-effect print and the die cut 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 now until November, supported by branded glassware and other point of sale material.
Toby Heasman, head brewer at Badger Beer, said: “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 mouthfeel.
“The combination of the crystal rye malt, the dark crystal malt and a dash of chocolate malt provides a great depth of colour which reflects the autumn leaves when combined with our Flagon premium ale malt.
“This combination gives a full biscuit body to the beer that then allows the Anglo American hop charge of Amarillo and Jester to provide a fruity depth of character to this beer.”
