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.

The_Osprey (5742) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
May 2016 - Bottle share at Floor 42 with thanks to T-Boys. As ’Sharps Chalkys Bite’, 6.8%. Dark yellow, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is crackers, green raisin, papery, bit oxidised. Body is light, tingly carbonation, a bit frothy. Taste is airy with crackers, apple peel, varnish and a spicy finish. Not great.

ManVsBeer (8250) - 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.

Bottle, gentle sweetness with hints of candy sugar, faint honey and spice notes. Vaguely reminiscent of a Ttripel.
