The Holy Ale...
I tried a new beer tonight called Monty Pythons Holy Grail Ale. Now there’s a beer that combines two of your passions. Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale is a delicious beer that the Knights of the Round Table would have been proud of. It is brewed by the Black Sheep Brewery in Yorkshire, England since 1999 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Monty Python.
Even though the label says this fine Ale is "tempered over burning witches," the Black Sheep Brewery prides itself on centuries old brewing traditions, which rarely includes burning witches. The ale is an effervescent, copper colored ale with a floral nose and a wonderful fruity hop finish. It has a distinctive taste with plenty of fruity hops, and is full flavoured with a dry and refreshing bitterness. It has a real smooth summery taste almost reminiscent of Sam Adams Summer Ale.
