Black Sheep Ale

Review this Beer

In the beginning there was Best Bitter. Black Sheep needed a quality premium strength beer that would stand alongside their standard session bitter and so Black Sheep Ale was born.

Tasting Notes


Black Sheep Ale

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.


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.

Food and Beer Pairing

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.


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.

Made using a blend of whole hops including Challenger and Progress hops, with an emphasis on Goldings, giving the beer its fruity nose.
