Very mild aroma but very strong hoppy taste. Hardly any head. Dark golden brown colour. Won't rush to have it again.

Cask red lion wetherby. Dark amber colour good whit head + lacing. Aroma is malts. Taste is sweet biscuit malts followed by good lingering bitter finish. Good body sot carbonation. One of the best mass produced colour bearers for Yorkshire bitter.

Cask. Listed as "Black Sheep Special Ale". Dark tea coloured with thick off white head. Honeycomb and malt nose. Surprisingly hoppy taste with some floral notes. A little alcohol and tea. Quite a full taste.

Cask at the Black Sheep Brewery, Masham, September 2013. Clear dark gold with white head. Robust fruity aroma and some honey. Sweet, a little malt and fruity English hops in the mouth. Medium body, bitter finish.

Cask @ The Clarendon, Leicester. Your traditional brown coloured brown bitter. I really like black sheep best bitter as when I was a young man (read teenager) I loved black sheep best, so the brewery is nostalgic to me. That being said, This isn't exactly the best beer I've drunk and it has that muddy yeasty taste that black sheep has. And I don't live in Yorkshire any more so it's not exactly 10 a penny any more. I like it. Boring old mans beer that it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Goose, Bracknell. Hazy golden amber with a dense white head; simple malty aroma; soft and malty in the mouth with some treacle toffee; then a light bitterness before a biscuity finish. A pleasant, straightforward Yorkshire bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle badged as Cavern Beat Ale. A traditional British Bitter indeed. Pokey white pepper bitterness, sellotaped to a backdrop of light toffee malt and prickling fizz - a like a 1984 Weetabix costume at Syston Carnival. Pleasant enough I suppose, but tradition can hold one back. The Beatles deserve a slightly better beer than this.

I enjoy this straight forward beer. A slight treacley maltiness with roasted coffee highlights. Such a lovely texture. Mmmmmm. Oaty lovelyness.

Keeping ale simple is no bad thing! One of several lovely Black Sheep ales brewed in Masham, North Yorkshire (also home of Theakstons). Good brewery tour and nice food.
