I quite like Back Sheep beers except for one thing.
I find that they smell a bit like manure, or silage, or both.
They always look good, this one being a lovely golden amber with just a trace of foamy head.
And the flavours are full and satisfying too.
A honey soaked biscuit base, caramelised sugar and bran flake robustness, and then a very nice flowery shrub green swell that turns crisp and cool and thirst quenching.
You get lemon juice tartness and a spoonful of marmalade, and there’s crushed all spice and a dash of chilli heat.
There’s also a lovely long finish that spicily pricks at your tongue.
Unfortunately I also get a nose full of farmyard smells which tends to spoil my enjoyment somewhat.
