Sharp’s Brewery is bringing back Red Ale today, following huge demand from on-trade customers and cask beer lovers. The delicious, fruity bittersweet beer is making a comeback at the bar one year on from being named the ‘Supreme Champion Beer of Cornwall’ by CAMRA.
The wonderfully rounded flavour of Red Ale (4.1% ABV), which is achieved through being matured over Cornish oak, will be something to savour after a long walk through golden leaves. With its caramel and biscuit aroma and deep flavour, featuring dry roasted coffee and nutty malts, Red Ale becomes moreishly bitter, making it the perfect autumn brew.
Stuart Howe, Head of Craft Brewing and Innovation at Sharp’s, commented: “Red Ale has become a firm favourite with Sharp’s customers and it’s a natural choice for our seasonal beer at this time of the year. Sharp’s has a great reputation for providing brews for every occasion and, we’re very pleased to be delighting our customers once again by bringing back the ever popular Red Ale.”
The beer is the latest in a series of seasonal brews from Sharp’s for 2013.
