Preheat oven to 180. In a bowl stir together the flour, sage and the cheese.
Fold in melted butter, orange zest and juice from oranges along with the beer.
Stir just until combined.
Turn dough onto a floured surface. Pat down into a 3cm height disc. Using a round biscuit cutter, cut scones out. Continue to pat down and cut remaining dough. Place scones on an ungreased baking sheet.
Brush scones with milk and sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
Add the beer at the end. You may not need the full amount. It will of course depend on how much orange juice you have. Once you add in the beer and you start to get a lovely wet looking dough - stop adding and get on with the rest of the recipe :-)
