As you can see, the sheep ale seems to have a bigger head than the ferret.
Note that for the taste test, we used a neutrally branded beer glass. The ales tasted are in fact English, so the James Boags glass shouldn't favour either of them ;-) Of course the tasting was so serious that we had to appropriately prepare our tastebuds:
As it happens, both ales tasted great. The sheep ale was in fact smokier. As you can see it is a little darker, which comes from a longer roasting. They were both simply delicious ales, so I'll just have to find more suppliers. Or more beers to try.
