Masses of hops, orange-fruit and roast coffee maltiness
Bittersweet in mouth with a dry finish packed with fruity notes and Goldings hops.
Black Sheep Ale is a full flavoured, premium bitter with a rich fruity aroma. We use plenty of choice Golding hops which give it a roast coffee maltiness followed by Black Sheep’s characteristic refreshingly dry and bitter finish.
Part of our original brewery line up, Black Sheep Ale is a powerfully flavoured pint that packs a punch with rich fruit aromas and a distinctively smooth, bittersweet taste.
|We use Maris Otter malted barley which delivers a better quality and more consistent beer. This brew contains more Crystal Malt than Best Bitter, giving Black Sheep Ale its rich flavour and darker colouring.
We use a blend of whole hops including Challenger and Progress hops, with an emphasis on Goldings, giving the beer its fruity nose.
|Black Sheep Ale is brewed with a large helping of Golding hops which lend a fruity flavour reminiscent of Seville oranges which, together with the warming full bodied malt flavour, stand up well to all red meats and most cheeses such as Wensleydale and Stilton.
