Ale predates lager as it refers to a top fermenting product historically made without hops, generally warm fermentation due to the yeast variety “Saccharomyces cerevisiae”. Ales can be as pale as the lightest Lager or as dark as Stout, very delicate or a full flavour, bitter or sweet. Ales can be 2—22% so the variations and choices are vast.

Pale Ale

Pale Ales simply refer to their colours varying from straw to golden, but even in this category the variances in aroma, strength and flavour can vary massively depending on what ingredients are used.

Atlantic is a modern pale ale brewed to feature the best attributes of our ingredients. Succulence from two types of malt, tropical and citrus fruits from new world hops. All this, along with Sharp's trademark complexity and balance, give a beautifully refreshing pale ale.

ABV 4.2% Cask, ABV 4.5% Bottle

Taste Note:

Atlantic is a deep golden colour. The aroma of Pale Ale is a blend of stunning citrus notes, juicy tropical fruits and fresh-picked hops with a touch of candy floss. The flavour has a delicate sweetness with fruity succulence and citrus spice to the fore. The finish is sweet at first becoming dry and lingering with hop zest.

The IPA is so called (legend has it), because as the British shipped beer to India in the 18th century, it was only the strong and hoppy beers survived the gruelling journey.

Thought long lost to the history books, the IPA has been revitalised over the last 20 years, with a new generation of brewers now producing hard hitting beers with huge hop flavours and increasing bitterness. The IPA now seems to be leading the way in this beers renaissance, pioneered by American Craft brewers but using native hops rather than British.

Embodying the spirit of the Craft movement, Wolf Rock is a hybrid beer from Sharp’s, a Red IPA. Brewed with heavyweight new world hops and complemented with the finest British malt for a distinctive flavour and enticing red hue; full ripe sweetness and citrus with a roasted and berry fruit finish.

ABV 4.5% Keg, ABV 4.8% Packaged

Taste Note:

Wolf Rock is a fusion of Red Ale and IPA styles and combines Noble and New World hops with our finest special malt to deliver its distinctive flavour and enticing red hue.


Brussels Beer Challenge Silver 2014, International Beer Challenge Silver 2016
Very much a beer inspired by New World IPAs but with the balance and moreishness of traditional pale ales. With Chieftain IPA, Shane Long (founder of Franciscan Wells) wanted everything an IPA has to deliver, but he wants you to be able to enjoy another beer after it. Chieftain IPA is a great stepping stone into the land of big and bitter.

ABV 5.5%

Taste Note:

Big citrus aroma and a cloudy haze, Chieftain IPA has a medium bitterness at the front, evenly balanced by the rich sweetness from the malt with a light, hoppy finish.

Amber Ale

The same rule as the Pale ale applies to its amber ale counterpart; the style is depicted by the colour. The Amber colour will be created by speciality malts such as roasted barleys, chocolate malts and high colour caramel malts. Not only do these speciality ingredients change the colour but they’ll affect the taste as well providing vanilla, chocolate and toasted flavours.

Doom Bar is the epitome of consistency, balance and moreish appeal and is now the UK's no.1 selling cask beer.

Bottle ABV 4.3%, Cask ABV 4%

Taste Note:

An enticing aroma of resinous hop, sweet malt and delicate roasted notes. The mouth feel is a balanced, complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malt and a subtle yet assertive bitterness. The finish is dry and refreshing.

Wheat Beer

Wheat/Wit or Weiss beers, are generally top fermented so technically an ale, though commonly (and incorrectly) categorised as lagers.

A 400-year-old Belgian beer style that like the great Pilsners adopted and developed by the Bavarians specifically brewed and held for Bavarian royalty. As the name suggests all Wheat beers contain wheat.

In 1995, our head brewmaster Keith Villa, put a new-world twist on the old-world art of brewing and created a refreshingly unique take on the classic Belgian Wit beers he had grown to love while studying brewing in Brussels. By taking inspiration from the classic Belgian Wit recipe and then tweaking it with Valencia orange peel and adding a touch of coriander, Keith crafted a beer unlike any other.

ABV 5.4%

Taste Note:

Unfiltered and naturally cloudy, Blue Moon has a lightly spiced, sweet citrus aroma with hints of coriander and zesty orange. A uniquely complex taste, the Valencia orange peel gives a subtle sweetness leaving a smooth yet tangy finish.
