Another fine addition to the Black Sheep Brewery range of premium bottled ales, our Holy Grail Bitter was specially commissioned to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Monty Python. It has a distinctive taste with plenty of fruity hops, and is full flavoured with a dry and refreshing bitterness.

Quick3Beers (1424) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Pours an amber from a bottle. Skunky caramel malt aroma, somewhat nondeScript fruity sweetness, slight bitterness at the end. A little thin and unimpressive really. Meh.

BeerInHeaven (480) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2016
pours clear amber with a medium off white head. aroma is malt and bread. The taste is good. Nice balance between the sweetish malt and hop bitter. Pleasant bittersweet linger after the finish. Refreshing & good beer! Llama approved. Tell us, oh Tim, where we might get another pint of this one!

Bought for fun rather than the hope of a great ale. Surprisingly light colour. Fruity malt aroma, okay bitterness. Worth a few quid just for the bottle.

Stuedmaster (352) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Ahh, tempered over burning witches. I didn’t have high expectations for a novelty beer but it’s very quaffable overall. Golden orange pour with a soapy one finger head that retains and leaves slight lacing. Nose of sweet malt, bread, nuts, slight citrus. A decent British ESB that goes down easy but is pretty unremarkable. kind of watery.

edgallow (4477) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2015
12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, grass and floral. Taste is nutty, malts and caramel.

3.1
BeerViking (5046) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Amber-brown with a lasting white head, lightly nutty and grassy nose, strong and lightly toasty, with hints of lemon, hay and burnt caramel.

2.3
arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of skunk, grass, yeast, some bread, touch of spice. Taste was a mix of grass, trash, bread, cracker, skunky notes finishing slightly bitter, prickly.
