Haka is a ferocious, robust, New Zealand-hopped Bitter at 4.5%. New Zealand hops are known for their power and depth, and and when combined thoughtfully as in Haka, create the most gorgeously seductive beers: enticing on the nose and bold on the palate. The real triumph of Haka is that head brewer Clive Ham has managed to create a delicacy to accompany the strength of the hops that means this can be an all-evening beer!
