81Despite the unpromising aroma, this is a very refreshing, golden beer, especially for the strength. The tartness is an excellent foil for the sweetness of the malt.
Sharp's Chalky's Bark
81A well-balanced and rather subtle ginger beer, with the spice most evident in the glow it leaves in the finish. Smooth and quaffable.
Sharp's Chalky's Bite
83A very effective, carefully created, Belgian-style ale that includes a subtle dose of wild fennel seeds. Produced in conjunction with seafood chef Rick Stein, whose Jack Russell terrier lends its name...
Sharp's Doom Bar
73Nicely balanced but firmly malt-accented amber Cornish bitter.
Sharp's Gentle Jane

Sharp's Massive Ale
82A substantial but fairly subtle ale that is very easy to drink for the considerable strength, with alcohol kept wonderfully in check.

83In contrast to some of the pasteurised beers in this tasting, the lightness of texture and the ‘wildness' of taste of this bottle conditioned amber ale are rather exciting. Full, fresh and satisfyin...
