    Default I like Black Sheep Beer and I am proud of it!

    I just thought I'd take this opportunity to say that I really like the caramel taste and smell of a good Black Sheep Bitter. And a fine pint of Riggwelter is sublime.

    I got the taste for Black Sheep beer on a holiday in Pateley Bridge a few years back. I have done the Brewery tour and supped beer in the visitor centre bar. And I bought the glasses.

    There is nothing 'ubiquitous' about Black Sheep.

    There is nothing pejorative about the word "ubiquitous"...

    Which Black Sheep was it? I had a pint of Bitter two weeks ago in Henley. Like all the beers that day, it was warm and flat. Mind you, it was a hot day. It was the best pint I had that day though.

    Wow, Black Sheep. That brings back memories on another site, nearly a year ago to the day!

    Excellent response.

    Some people are just so rude!

    I'm not adverse to BlackSheep, Riggwelter rather than the bitters,but there are other Yorkshire beers that I prefer:Copper Dragon Golden Pippin to name but one. What does irk me is that seemingly every pub in the Dales has BS- a bit like Sheps here in Kent. I love most Sheps beers, but to find them in a free house...There, I didn't use the u-word.

    Back from my holiday in Kent, the only beer I could find on tap was Master Brew, at about 3.7%. Whilst a nice beer, I was craving for something light and hoppy by the end of the week!

    Black Sheep Bitter was available locally a while back but was replaced by Tribute. A year or so ago I would stop at The Pepper Pot just off the M40 Warwick junction. They had it but I preferred the lighter Everards Tiger.

    Copper Dragon is a very good beer. Their Black Gold is amazing. I got into Copper Dragon at the Blue Bell in Kettlewell in 2008. It was a very good Copper Dragon pub. It might still be. I haven't been there for two years.

    But living in the Midlands, I can't get Copper Dragon round here.

    I'm not saying that Black Sheep is my favourite beer, just that I quite like it. I certainly drink it up in Yorkshire. But I also like Cameron's Strongarm, which I have never seen outside of Whitby.

    Wye Valley beers, Hobson's, Black Country Ales, Batham's are the obvious cracking ones we get in my neck of the woods. But I'll always defend Black Sheep.
