Black Sheep Monty Python Holy Grail (England)

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.  

Not a bad drop but not mind blowing.
