Sharp's Brewery is releasing Atlantic Pale Ale, a new golden ale beer that will join the UK's No.1 cask ale, Doom Bar, as part of Sharp's portfolio in 2014.

Atlantic Pale Ale will be officially launched at the St Ives CAMRA Beer Festival on the 30th May, which Sharp's Brewery are sponsoring. Golden ale is the fastest growing category in cask beer, with volume sales increasing by 25.2% in March compared to a year ago.

Atlantic Pale Ale is the first permanent cask beer launched from Sharp's since 2005 when the brewer launched Eden Ale and the original premium strength 4.8% Atlantic IPA. Atlantic has also previously appeared as a Sharp's seasonal beer - when it has performed as the brewery's most popular seasonal beer ever.

abv: 4.5%

Golden & Refreshing


Hobgoblin Gold is the latest beer carrying the little fella's moniker, and while Gold might be lighter in colour, it's definitely no lightweight. At 4.5% abv, the combination of four hop varieties and an infusion of wheat and malted barley has resulted in the perfect golden beer – with a huge hop punch.

Guilt edged golden refreshment. Well what did you expect?

skinners lushingtons

skinners lushingtons

 

abv: 4.2%

Pale & Refreshing


Lushingtons is a cool, hop-laden pale ale brewed using traditional methods with Cornish water; whole-flower Citra, Belma and Willamette hops; Cornish malted barley and wheat; and Skinner's unique yeast.

TASTE NOTES
Bursting with fruit, within its bittersweet scent you'll pick up lime and mangoes with a little lychee. And its creamy texture contains a slight strawberry finish. Enjoy with white meats, fish or a 99.

INSPIRATION
It's said, somewhere way down south, in a cove between St Ives and Padstow, you'll find a perfect beach, where you can spend hazy, lazy summer days lying in the warm sun with good friends and not a care in the world. And, as the sun begins to sink into the sea, the only thing that could make life any better would be a glass of cool, hop-laden pale ale. This is the place and the moment that Lushingtons was brewed for.

ARTIST
Lushingtons' beautiful label has been created by A-Side, a dynamic Cornwall-based team of illustrators that has worked with pioneering South-West brands such as Origin Coffee Roasters, Dorset Cereals and the Port Eliot Festival.

St Austell - Tribute

St Austell - Tribute

 

abv: 4.2%

Amber & Fruity


"Tribute is a magnificent example of a bronze coloured English bitter, with a rich aroma of biscuity malt and tart citrus fruit from the Willamette hops. Juicy malt, hop resins and tangy fruit coat the tongue, while the finish is long and lingering, with a fine balance between malt, hops and fruit, finally becoming dry and bitter."

Summer Lightning ABV 5%

Summer Lightning ABV 5%

 

abv: 5.0%

Pale & Hoppy


A trendsetter in the brewing industry; the original Summer ale brewed all year round. An extremely pleasant bitter, straw coloured beer with a terrific fresh, hoppy aroma. This, coupled with an intense bitterness, leads to an excellent long, dry finish. Probably the beer to receive the most awards in Britain!


 


Summer Lightning has an ABV of 5%
