MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - DEC 17, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a loose medium-sized tanned foamy head. Fruity and toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel, berries and a touch of liquorice. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Mildly toasty malty and fruity taste with notes of berries and citrus, accompanied by liquorice spice; fruity and slightly toasty finish. Classical stuff. 15.XII.10

prawlie (1283) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 500 mL bottle from Morrissons. Dried fruit aroma and clear orange orange in appearance. Tastes a little off putting at first but then got morish. This is isn’t a classic, but it slips down easily. Bitter and hoppy. I prefer the Golden Sheep, but this has a hint of Tim Taylor’s Landlord which speaks well of it.

50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK. Nice deep honey colour, Sweet cinnamon aroma, more bitterness on the flavour. Some yeast and honey come through on the finish, with a long pepperiness that finalizes it.

Nickls (1974) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Hazy orange-amber color, with nice slightly white head. Great retention and lacing throughout. Lots of great malt aromas up front, but some yeastiness that follows right behind. Almost herbal aromas as well. Maltier up front, but there is a good hop presence as well as some of those herbal flavors picked up in the aroma. Medium MF, with a lot of carbonation for the style. I didn’t think that was negative, though. Fairly viscous. his was a breeze to sample, and I could see this as a great session beer for myself. Overall, this had a lot of interesting aspects, but was a very balanced Pale Ale. I would certainly recommend, and I think it’s Black Sheep’s best offering.

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks David C. Clear golden with a light haze. Aroma is grainy with some buttery notes. Flavor starts with sweetish grainy malt and then turns bitter, earthy and a bit metallic. Medium-bodied.
