Golden sheep is a beautifully balanced, light cask ale that’s perfect for summer drinking.  Gloriously refreshing, it’s a direct descendant from the popular Golden Sheep bottled ale

Golden Sheep

We tweaked the original recipe to make it lighter and more of a blonde beer. We brew it using time honoured methods and ferment it in our traditional Yorkshire Square Vessels to give it our characteristically dry and refreshingly clean finish.

Golden Sheep is a beautifully balanced blonde beer that develops with zesty flavours and finishes with a clean and wickedly moreish finish.

Food and Beer Pairing

The citrusy flavours of the First Gold hops, lemon and grapefruit lend a delicate zing that sits beautifully with lighter foods such as fish and other seafood.


We use Maris Otter malt for all our beers. It’s an old and very expensive variety that’s distinguished for its taste and quality.

A mixture of old English hop varieties with masses of First Gold hop gives Golden Sheep its citrusy characteristics and light nose. We then balance the flavour with plenty of Challenger hops.

We use a touch of wheat which helps deliver the lovely creamy head and lacing down the glass - just what you would expect from a proper Yorkshire beer!


We only started brewing Golden Sheep Cask Ale in 2009, so watch this space!

Fancy a pint?

Golden Sheep is also available as a bottled beer.
