Donít like this. The aroma is unpleasant - smells mildly like the fat deposits that get left in the pipes of a washing machine. Taste isnít much to write home about. Itís too fizzy.

Strong flavour. Nice after tang. Slightly fizzy on the tongue but most likely as from a bottle. Would drink again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber colour. Malty slight floral smell. Dry bitter taste. Yeasty character perhaps? OK golden ale, if lacking a bit of complexity.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark golden brown amber colour, with watery malty yeast aroma, and bubbly white head. Taste is initial sourish caramel burnt dry earthy , with slight hoppy bitterness that lingers, layered against a thin malty sweetish taste. OK bitter.

Bottle from Sainsburys. A reddish golden colour. Really this is just a lighter version of the standard Black Sheep ale, showing lots of house dry yeasty character, so if you like all the others youíll like this. I love the others but think the lighter version loses a bit of the complexity and dry bite you get from the standard version, and if I wanted a summery golden ale I probably wouldnít go looking for a Sheep. Nice enough but not special.

500ml bottle - golden pour with white head, a little floral in the nose, but dry and citrus in the taste. A little bitter afterwards, but not too unpleasant.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Taste of flowers, grains and hay. Quite refreshing, easy to drink but little bit too bitter for me in the finish.

Slight fizz with poured and developed a thin, foamy head. Balanced flavour but more bitter than anything else. Crisp, refreshing but not especially memorable.
