Golden Sheep

Sunshine in a glass, a citrus packed Blonde Ale.

Golden Sheep is a gloriously refreshing, beautifully balanced, golden cask ale, perfect thirst quencher!

Following the success of Golden Sheep in bottle form, which was originally brewed for the Tesco Finest range, plus the growing demand from for lighter golden beers,our brewers created the perfect response - Golden Sheep in cask.

Our brewers fine-tuned the original bottle recipe to make it lighter and hoppier, the result being a superbly quaffable golden ale. As you would expect, we make it using time honoured methods and ferment Golden Sheep in our traditional Yorkshire Square Vessels for a characteristically dry, refreshingly clean finish. Golden Sheep's popularity ensured that it soon became the fourth permanent cask beer in our core range.

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.

Ingredients icon


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 mix of classic English hop varieties with masses of First Gold hop gives Golden Sheep its citrusy characteristics and light nose. We then enhance the citrus 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!
