Never ones to hold back when there's an excuse to try out something new in their tanks, Murray's have brought out an Easter Ale in time for the holidays. A spiced ale, making it something of a distant cousin of the Pumpkin Ale released by the brewery for Halloween, it's a seriously limited released. Described by Murray's as "an Easter spiced beer to celebrate the season" it boasts "strong cinnamon and nutmeg spice aromas blended with bready British malts". Sound familiar? Well, it takes inspiration from hot cross buns and is topped off with a late addition of raisins to enhance the sweet and savoury feel - and allow them to use the terrible pun "Raisin' the bar" on the label! In short, brewer Shawn says: "It's a bit of fun and smells like a hot cross bun."
