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.

Golden, white head quickly disappeared. Caramel, some bitterness, quite light. Carbonation high, light body. A joke of a beer.

(drunk it with the temperature slightly above the recommended level) A nice, honey-colored ale with a firm layer of foam. It has a nice, apple sweet aroma, but without the sour part. It tastes slightly hop-bitter, with the apple touch on the background. Is leaves a dry palate, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. (Gedronken boven de aanbevolen drinktemperatuur) Een mooi, helder, honingkleurig ale met een compacte, stevige kraag. Een lekker aroma van appelen, maar zonder het zure er van. De smaak is lichtjes hop-bitter, met de appelsmaak licht op de achtergrond. De afdronk is droog, en laat een licht bittere nasmaak achter.

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 (444) - 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.

Ahh, tempered over burning witches. I didnít have high expectations for a novelty beer but itís 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.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, grass and floral. Taste is nutty, malts and caramel.
