The name - Moonshine - breaks Abbeydale's ecclesiastical tradition when naming their ales. Still the instantly recognizible pump clip carries a sense of the mystical.
Moonshine is a beautifully balanced pale straw-coloured premium bitter with a distinctive floral aroma, leading to a predominantly citrus taste, with grapefruit and lemons to the fore, and a quenching bitter finish.
This is consistently Abbeydale Brewery's biggest selling beer.
First brewed in 1996 it was designed as a premium pale bitter to show drinkers of a very big and old-established brewery's offering just what a beer could taste like... After a bit of name-calling and throwing of stones, it had no trouble in establishing a reputation as the genuine Sheffield Gold Beer. It is now available as a "regular" beer at a number of outlets in and around Sheffield.
