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.

Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - yellow golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lemon and soapy hops but not in a bad way. Meadow flowers too. Taste - citrus and light vanilla. Custard almost. Palate - light bodied with a light creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a nice aromatic pils.

Fine one here shared with McTapps. Very cripy for a Pilsner with fine carbo and some citrus back. Hoppy moments. Refreshing and lively sparkling piwo with a touch of grass towards the end. Thumbs up.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. The beer pours out in a clear golden colour with airy low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of bitter hops, citurs, grass and herbs. Easy drinkable with a high carbonation. Not bad but also not that good. Average.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
From Ricoh TossCo. Small bottle. Wet gold without head. Decent biscuit and tangerine jelly aroma. Somewhat anodyne and soapy beyond with hints of rubber and lemon cake. Dead finish without hop presence- essential for qualification as a pilsener proper. Half-arsed condition. Pretty limp. A bland Golden Ale.

jamesie1857 (1482) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
330ml bottle from Tesco - Clear straw yellow body, thin white froth on top. Nose is crisp and floral, nothing too dramatic. Taste is similar, bit of crispness. Overall not really worth screaming about. It was fizz.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco, Cleethorpes. Pale gold with a faint haze, thin shortlived fizz of white foam, good condition. Muted tangy fruitiness with a hint of grapefruit citrus and peardrops in the nose. Soft in the mouth with a faintly oxidised hop note, brief flowery hoppiness in an otherwise bland finish
