Black Sheep Ale

This delicious Ale comes out of the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham, North Yorkshire in England.  I have to admit that I purchased it solely on the basis of its attractive sturdy oversized bottle.  It was a little over a pint or half a liter for you metric types.  And, like I said, it was delicious.

It was formerly called their “special ale” and I can see where the name came from.  Light and drinkable with an ABV of 4.4%, it was a tasty brew with nice bitter aftertaste.  Certainly not as hoppy as its Pale Ale or IPA cousins, it did have a nice hop aroma and initial taste up front.  Then the malty goodness took over, although never becoming too sweet or cloying.  I only had one, but I could easily have had a few more.

My Rating: 8 out of 10.
