Blind Side

Blind Side – 8 English Hopped Ruby Ale – Black Sheep Brewery

I was a bit worried about giving this a go. After the poor experience of the Drop Kick, I was concerned that this 2015 World Cup Rugby themed beer may also need to be sin binned.

However, having spent enough time in Yorkshire and having actually been to the Black Sheep Brewery, I will admit they are one of my favourite British brewers and have gained a level of trust. Thus, I put the thoughts of the Drop Kick to one side and gave it a punt.

I was pleased to find that the Black Sheep Brewery had not let me down. The Blind Side had a pleasing but not overwhelming malty flavour. It is easily drinkable and I managed to get through a whole conversation without even thinking about it.
