COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to drink long winter sessions of our favorite card game. Extensive dry hopping combined with a formidable malt bill creates the hoppiest beer in Redwood County!

Looks thick; clear brown with a white head. Smells sweet though the floral hops sneaks through. Perfect blend of sweetness and hops make very drinkable. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

The aroma of the Sheep Head Ale is quite strong; I can sense floral hops and a hint of citrus as well. The flavor is slightly sour, with very little sweetness - but that’s not a problem at all. The palate is rather smooth as well with a good body. This is a pretty great beer; I recommend giving it a try. Might be hard to find out of the upper Midwest.

RyanMM (411) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Pours deep copper, very full head. Takes time to settle down, lots of lingering foam. Aroma is toasty and caramel malts with some resinous hops. Lower carbonation, just a hint of caramelly sweetness followed by a solid but moderate bittering. This is a nice bitter amber (I certainly wouldn’t call this a pale ale by any definition) that drinks easy while still having a lot of flavor.

drpimento (2219) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Kind of an odd, yet not bad brew. Poured at a good temperature with a huge, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that slowly settled and decent lacing. Color is a clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is fresh beer, caramel malt, and mild hop. Flavor is like nose, hop flavor comes out a little more. There’s more hop bitterness than flavor. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, drinkable, yet rather forgettable.

WisconsinBeer (705) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2009
On tap Winterfest 2009 St. Paul MN. Pours a hazy orange color with a minimal head. Mild malts, strong bittering and dry hop notes. Hops are fresh and citric. Dry finish, medium bodied. Wasn’t expecting much from this beer but was pleasantly surprised.

timjertson (27) - Waseca, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Reddish copper brew with a lovely creamy head. Fresh citrus hop aroma with a slight hint of the malt. Head lingers. Hoppy, but with enough malt to balance it. A very nice ale.

Trev (1929) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours copper with thin head. Aroma is decent herbal hop, some light lemony citrus. Toasted and caramel malt with a hint of vanilla perhaps? Flavour is nicely balanced. Medium hop with a nice toasted malt presence. Almost comparable to a british pale though more assertive hop.

Ratman197 (9690) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, lemon zest, earthiness, toasted malt and light grapefruit zest. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, grapefruit zest and light lemon zest with a smooth dry bitter lingering grapefruit finish.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice pine note backed by grapefruit and sweet grains. Flavor has more grapefruit up front that is joined by pine and has a pleasant not too sweet malt backbone.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Deep amber that is near copper with a light yellowish khaki head. Smells of grapefruit and sweet crystal malt are strong up front. There is also some pleasing dry straw. The taste has some bitter grapefruit peel and black pepper spice. The finish is fairly sweet with some toasted toffee. Wow, this is pretty much an IPA in my opinion. Good brew.
