Our Beers

    A mellow cloudy wheat ale with zesty fruit notes and a gentle swirling floral aroma

  • Summer Amber Pilsner, Sharps, 3.9%

    "If a pale ale can be black then why can't a pilsner be Amber? Pilsners are typically pale straw in colour with malt contributing very little to the flavour. Sharp's Amber Pilsner is brewed using the classic Pilsner essentials; Pilsner malt, Saaz and Hersbrucker hops and lager yeast (Saccharomyces Pastorianus). The amber colour comes from a Carapils gives a sweeter more rounded taste to the Pilsner and allows for the use of more wonderful noble hops." - Sharps Head Brewer, Stuart Howe
