Always a lovely aroma and so very palatable too. Alcohol content is just right to give it a nice kick. You can’t go wrong with Black Sheep.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Herbaciany, przejrzysty, jasno- bursztynowy kolor. Piana na jeden palec, średnio-pęcherzykowa. Dość słaby aromat słodu i karmelu. Smak: typowy angielski bitter: średnia goryczka, gładka faktura, kwaskowość, herbaciane nuty, słód. Przyjemny, gorzko-kwaskowy posmak. Dość porzadnie nasycony, bogaty- full body. Dobry bitterek.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle into pint glass, L31 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with well balanced dark/bready malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, light pear/apple, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Quite restrained on yeast fruitiness which was surprising. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is an excellent English bitter style. All around great robustness and balance of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is caramel, slight banana undertones, sweet, sligthly earthy; alright. Taste is muted, very nutty, sweet leading to light fruits and then an earthy finish. It’s a decent enough supermarket beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Extremely nutty flavor for my liking, with a weak lager-like aroma. Decent price so must say I would enjoy again.
