Holy Grail Ale (Black Sheep)

The nose is gentle citrus with a floral aroma, perhaps shrubs? It pours a clear gold, like a shining beacon of ale.

The taste is initial caramel, quite sweet, no big malt flavours. This is soon matched by a rather robust bitterness. A lingering gentle dryness stays on the tongue. Rather thin at points and lacks any big flavours of note, but does provide nice balance.

6/10 Very drinkable. Not too sweet, not to bitter, lighter than a duck.

Buy the beers from their online shop
