Bottle 500 served in ikea glass (like those you use for Belgian blanche).
Despite of the name this beer is orange amber. It is indeed very pale.
Carbonated at first then still.
I don't feel a special smell, maybe tea and some candi sugar.
It is fizzy but dry, with less alcohol than I would expect.
It has an accentuated bitterness and a very light body.

500ml Bottle: BBD 28 Jun 2014, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 19 Oct 2013.
Good amber body with an off-white head that tried to stay around.
Which ingredient gives the aroma and taste lead? Malts, but only just, this is a good blend of flavours and smells.
Semi-sweet malty molasses actually rule the flock in this Black Sheep brew. Caramel and mild toffee notes come through with an undertone of hop bitterness asserting it'self towards the end of the nose and taste.
Mellow and soft body: very easy to drink.

Served in a tumbler.
Gotta love it when awesome customers travel to the UK and bring you back some tasty beverages. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly-toasted biscuit, mild grass, and sweet flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger vein of sweetness stemming from the biscuit, though this serves only to perfectly balance the grassy and flowery hops. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, this stuff is not gonna set the world on fire, by any means, but it is a very tasty, very easy-to-drink little brew. Something tells me it would taste just grand (Wow, did I just say that? Who am I, a middle-aged upper-class Victorian woman?) from a hand engine...
