Black Sheep Ale from North Yorkshire, England looked promising from the bottle. Five generations of brewers, Northern English ale, and a kick ass name to boot.
I was looking forward to trying the Black Sheep. I love English beer and their ales in particular. That's why, I left this one in the back of my fridge until it was the last beer. I wanted to build up the anticipation of what a great drinking experience it will be.
Black Sheep Ale certainly met my expectations. It had the distinctive color of many English ales that I love, browny-orange that was slightly cloudy. A nice frothy head formed when I poured it, and the residual head stayed for the length of the glass, leaving a nice film along the glass's inner surface.
It has a nice crisp, fresh taste that leaves a hoppy bitterness which lingers in the back of the mouth as you work through the glass.
If you have the opportunity, I strongly encourage you to try this ale! It's a deliciously classic English ale that makes you think you're in the pub even when your sitting in front of the TV at home. I give this 4 big burps!!
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
