COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
9th August 2012: From today, Sharps 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, Sharps Head Brewer Stuart Howe has continued his fine work with Edens 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 Sharps, said: "Cornish Pilsner is clear and satisfying, a refreshing reward for visitors exploring the worlds 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, Edens Commercial Projects and Relationship Manager, said: "Were very pleased to have worked with Stuart and the Sharps team on the new Cornish Pilsner and its 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 Sharps Brewery shop and the Eden Project in Cornwall.
This new beer from Sharps follows the launch of the Connoisseurs Choice range, limited edition premium bottled beers designed to partner quality food.

MeadDoctor7 (1) - - NOV 30, 2016 does not count
On draught at centerparcs, longleat. Extortionately priced at 5.50 a pint. Despite the initial shock at having to remortgage my house to afford this highly touted beverage, I was greeted with a delightfully golden looking drink. It was slightly fizzy with a slightly slutty but inoffensive head. It definitely has a fragrant aroma of tropical fruit especially the rambutan and the mangosteen. The flavour of the crisp, clean, citrus fruits left my palate refreshed and me cooing for more.

jjsint (2470) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Keg at the Pickerel, Cambridge. Light yellow with a frothy white head. Sour herbal scent. Some citrus but it aint quite what it should be. Lively taste though; lemon sherbet-y sweet and the modest addition of thyme certainly adds something. Sourness on the finish. It isnt a rock star beer by any means but certainly has its moments.

Skinnyviking (9110) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2016
Draught at Heathrow Airport. Medium high creamy lasting white head. Clear yellow golden body. Weak malt grass aroma. Heavily carbonated sweet malt grass flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short finish.

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 couldnt drink hers.

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

Rune (11496) - Troms, 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).
