Golden pour with thick, creamy white head. Caramel nose with light bittering hops. Flavor is lightly bitter, some nice hop flavor. A bit pineapple and nice malt. Solid pale here.

copper color, clear, decent citrus hoppiness in the nose. flavor is a nice mix of brown sugar and citrus. the bitterness is more along the lines of an IPA rather than an APA. clean and crisp...not bad.

12 oz bottle purchased at TC Craft Brew in New Hope, Minnesota. Pour is a hazed orange golden with a big fluffly light tan head. Head is quite lasting, eventually falls with coating lacing. Aroma is nice toasted malt, along with some fainter sweet resin. There is perhaps a bit of vanilla cola present as well. Taste is a grainy, resin, mildy bitter hop and malt mix. Finish is earth and mineral, a bit more of the bitterness. Palate is light to medium bodied, lower carbonation, the earthiness lingers and turns dirty in the long finish. This was likely not real fresh, but was also not bottle dated. Bonus point for naming a beer after Sheepshead.

.Bitter. zero carb, at first I thought it was a bad batch.. and it may have been out of age, but it honestly grew on me and turned into a beer I somewhat liked. Sheep head ale is supposed to be bitter and spicy and delivers on both fronts. Not a great beer by any means, but to change my mind so drastically left a mark though I may have to try another bottle or two to be sure this is what they were going for..

Tap. Deep maroon in color with a small white head. Huge caramel malt aroma profile. I’m not able to get any real hop presence which is disappointing. Taste is large amounts of malt with flavors of caramel, sugary chocolate cereal, and a small bitter finish. It isn’t that bad, actually. This is definitely a malt forward pale, but it is pretty good. Maybe a little lighter body with some hint of a hop presence and this would be better.

bottle pour. copper in color with a thin off white head. aroma is of caramel malt and spicy hops. on the lighter side of medium bodied. flavor is kind if weak, more malty than hoppy. thought it’d bring a little more to the table from the appearance/aroma. not a bad brew by any means.
