It’s a fruity extra pale ale brewed with a blend of New World hops, making it a perfect session pint to enjoy while sitting in the pub, watching the beginning of the FIFA World Cup.
At 3.8% ABV it’s sessionable, and juicy, combining flavours of fresh citrus with bursts of pithy grapefruit leading to a spiky, bitter finish. A light malt base allows the hops to dominate the flavour profile.
Jack Scott Paul, head of marketing at Black Sheep, said: “What better way to continue our 30th birthday celebrations than by launching a new cask beer to beat the dark days of November?
“Whether it’s your first cask beer or you’re an aficionado, at Black Sheep Brewery we truly believe there is a pint of cask for everyone, and we hope Sprinter’s refreshing flavour will be a hit with punters this November.”
He added: “With the World Cup kicking off in November, we needed to give beer lovers a clean, flavoursome, and sessionable brew to enjoy alongside the football.
“It is hoped that Sprinter will provide fans with a perfect option when they’re down their local cheering on the Three Lions!”
