Sharp's has launched a new beer in partnership with Rick Stein. The beer is named "Chalky's Bite" in tribute to Rick's faithful canine friend. Chalky's Bite is a very special beer with a brewing and maturation process of over four months. The beer is triple fermented using both the Sharp's yeast strain and a special Belgian strain and is uniquely flavoured with wild Cornish fennel.

ManVsBeer (8071) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose, Stevenage. Golden with next to no head. Strong enough, although its local flavouring gives it s strawberry-like aroma and taste, and the ale has an associated sweetness throughout its character. Fairly active in the palate.

Thanks to Bill, Sharps brewery.
330 ml bottle
Blood alc: 0 mg/100 ml

Light spice aroma with fresh zesty pine and lime, like a spicy citrus lager with honey and dusty cheese. Colour is very light golden straw. Flavour is very honey like, rich and sweet with subtle spice. Thatís it really. Ok.
