COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
"Beers for bottling are drawn from brewery conditioning tanks and transported by road tanker to our bottlers. There they are chilled, stored for ten days, then filtered and bottled. At the end of the bottling process, the bottles are pasteurised, labelled and packed."
"Brewed with many generous handfuls of choice Golding hops, it is full flavoured ale with a rich fruit nose. The bittersweet malty taste is followed by an uncompromising long, dry and bitter finish. This beer was the first, most successful, of all of our bottled beers."

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours copper with a big, off-white head. The aroma is earthy, bread, and caramel. The taste is caramel, bread, earthiness, and fruit. It’s a smooth drinkable beer with nice flavor.

Une bitter légère en amertume, bulles, simple, efficace quoi,.. Avec une personnalité bien à elle, cette dernière sans être forte m’est très appréciable. En mangeant, elle a tendance à s’effacer, c’est dommage, il vaut mieux la déguster sans mets.

La brasserie du mouton noir pour ma 500ème brasserie, c’est assez amusant ... Bitter de 4,4 % abv en format 50 cl, régulier en Angleterre. Mon exemplaire était 1 mois après sa date. Couleur roux un peu abricoté, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes, pas très nombreuses. Mousse blanche, à flocons moyens, et un peu plus fermes en haut, stable à 7 mm. Arômes de malt cara, orange, abricot, houblon amer, pointe de basilic. 1ère bouche douce, sur malt cara, houblon, feuilles de basilic. Arrière-bouche assez courte. 2ème bouche entre un bitter et un pale ale. Arrière-bouche plus longue, et un peu plus de caractère. 3ème à l’amertume un peu plus affirmée. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, agréable. Longueur à la belle texture, mais baisse de saveurs, et manque d’harmonie. Jambes à flocons moyens, assez collantes. Levure basique. Alcool qui a beaucoup de peine sur la longueur. Finale linéaire. CONCLUSION : le mouton était noir, mais il était tondu … Ah, le mouton tondu de Julos ?

4/11/16 bottle at home. Good malty bitter. Maybe a bit too dry and crisp. But still a nice Yorkshire ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cristobal37 (1234) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 2, 2016
Woody aroma. Bronze with finger or so of head. Very dry ale, very British. Slowly some woody vanilla notes come out and a pleasant bitterness lingers. Nice story behind it, but it just reminds me of a super dry pub ale. Satisfying.

Pours amber with a medium head. Uoon first sip, instant notes of honey and malt. Smooth.

hershiser2 (3667) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Pours a medium to dark amber with a large frothy off-white to beige head. Taste is bittersweet caramel, black tea, a little bit of vegetation. Heavy on caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
