really really standard bitter, if you wanted to know what basic bitter tasted like this would be it, the black sheep name hints at something darker but it aint, alright pint tho.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 Pint pulled at The Cock Inn in Surrey (in the middle of a 70km bike ride), a nice amber in colour but little head. Not a strong aroma, the malt being the most evident with a hoppy crispness. Flavour is mainly malty, with a good level of bitterness (with hints of grapefruit). A very inoffensive drop, something I would happily regularly drink.

Cask at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford
One of my favourite session beers. Good resiny hops with biscuity malts and some fruit leads to a dry bitter hop finish that makes you want to take another sip. Good beer
