Black Sheep Monty Python Holy Grail (England)
www.blacksheepbrewery.com Monty Python's Holy Grail Black Sheep Brewery 4.7% ABV Black Sheep developed this brew in 1999 to commemorate 30 years of Monty Python. Because of it's success in the UK and with a limited run in the US market proving very successful the brewery increased production and exporting to the US became a permanent fixture.
Ten years later on the 40th anniversary Holy Grail is still going strong. With more hops than a killer rabbit, it's a full-flavoured golden ale with a distinctively fruity flavour followed by the Black Sheep signature dry finish.
Marris Otter Malt is used in the brew along with buckets of specially grown hops.
The beer pours with a clear golden liquid with a slight carbonation and a white head. On the nose you have citrus and floral hop aromas. The beer has a little warmth from the alcohol hints of the Marris Otter malt. The beer has good bitterness. The beer has a light to medium body.
