9th August 2012: From today, Sharp’s Brewery in Rock is offering beer lovers the first taste of Cornish Pilsner, in collaboration with the Eden Project. Following the success of Eden Ale, Sharp’s Head Brewer Stuart Howe has continued his fine work with Eden’s Horticulture Team, which grows the English thyme that gives Cornish Pilsner a distinctive flavour.
A pale straw beer with a herbal lemon aroma, Cornish Pilsner is brewed using Pilsner malt, whole Saaz hops and a Czech lager yeast. It is then layered with English thyme and more whole Saaz in a cold maturation vessel, before bottle conditioning.
Stuart Howe, Head Brewer at Sharp’s, said: "Cornish Pilsner is clear and satisfying, a refreshing reward for visitors exploring the world’s largest indoor rainforest at the Eden Project.
"Crisp and light, with clean fruit notes, you will find Cornish Pilsner to be a delicious aperitif and a perfect partner to shellfish or light spicy dishes."
Tracey Smith, Eden’s Commercial Projects and Relationship Manager, said: "We’re very pleased to have worked with Stuart and the Sharp’s team on the new Cornish Pilsner and it’s great to have Eden-grown thyme which is an integral part of this delicious, refreshing new beer."
The 5.2% ABV beer is available online, at the Sharp’s Brewery shop and the Eden Project in Cornwall.
This new beer from Sharp’s follows the launch of the Connoisseurs Choice range, limited edition premium bottled beers designed to partner quality food.

Keg half-pint in The Station: Oakengates on 25th July 2016. Usual Lager/Pilsner golden, clean and clear look, white head too. Very sweet version of the style, Barley Sugar sweet with both caramel and toffee also. My sweet tooth took to it, the wife couldn’t drink her’s.

Fruity hops with a strange sweet floral finish. Can drink this but not a fan of its character.

Rune (11055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2015
Half pint from keg at Grape and Grain, Crystal Palace. Shared with Finn. Spotty lacing from a dissipating white head. Bright golden body. Very modest aroma of grain with a citric hint. Some grain and grass to the taste buds. Slightly sweet pale malty ending. Clean in the mouth. Rather tasteless (Greater London 28.11.2015).

Finn (6284) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2015
Fra keg på Grape & Grain Crystal Palace 28 Nov 15. Delt med Rune. Gyldenbrun. Filmskum. Syltynn lacing. Veldig lite aroma. Spor av malt. Smaken lett søtlig malt. Kjedelig.

Pint from the Bridge Hotel. Pours pale gold, reasonable but fast dissipating head. Bready, but thin flavour

AWS9 (634) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Tap. Clear gold, with foamy, fading head. Touch of citrus, mild (not entirely absent...) hops. Clean, simply lager-like finish. Certainly nothing to write home about (ahem), but they have managed an agreeable enough liquid.
