A good friend of mind picked this one up during his recent trip to Yorkshire. The Black Sheep Brewery produces quite a number of excellent beers and Holy Grail is no exception.
Once it’s had a chance to settle in the glass, you’ll get a lovely reddish-ginger rusty colour with a modest frothy head. Allow it to linger beneath your nose for a second or two and you’ll detect a fruity aroma with hints of caramel. The mouthfeel is very smooth and velvety; almost to the point of creaminess. The taste is fruity and biscuity, sweet and earthy.
The aftertaste is crisp, slightly bitter, and gingery. An all round solid beer from Black Sheep Brewery.
