This copper coloured gem is sure to please those in search of the ’Bitter side’ of life. Forget the description... it’s an explosion of hoppy bitterness. Don’t get angry... get Bitter. Bishop’s Best Bitter.

Pours a dark brown amber with a thin white head. Aroma sweet malt, caramel and slight resiny. Taste is mainly malt backing with a mild bitterness. Slightly roasted, slight caramel. Nice beer.

TheJester (1915) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2010
500 mL bottle. Amber-orange with a thick film of beige head. Bready, nutty aroma - nice, but quite mild. Bread, fruit, and caramel in the flavour - again, quite mild. Quite dry for the style, with decent bitterness at the end. A nice, drinkable bitter.

Bottle. rich copper pour with thin offwhite head. Aroma is sweet and floral hops. Mouth is medium carbonation and taste is bitter bitter bitter there isn’t much more to it all hops with a prolonged finish. Similar to the Cascade plus but it is more refreshing I think due to it’s lower alcohol level.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2009
Bouteille. Couleur cuivrée surmontée d’une épaisse mousse fauve beige. Bonne rétention. Elle présente des arômes de houblons anglais et de caramel. En bouche, elle présente une bonne base maltée, du caramelet une forte présence de houblon anglais. La finale est amère. Une bonne ESB.

bedainedebiere (501) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2009
3,99$ pour 500 ml à BDF. Arôme fétide, désagréable. Saveur très houblonnée, bonne amertume en bouche et en finale, mais peu de subtilités et de profondeur dans le gout. Assez bonne bitter mais sans plus.

Flamojune (113) - Ville de Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
Pour amateur de bitter seulement. probablement la bière la plus amère que j’ai gouté. Belle couleur cuivrée, la finale est éternellement biitter mais la biere est quand meme tres rafraichissante.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
Clear copper poor with a thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, fresh hops and a hint of orange zest. Very bitter mouthfeel, hits you more towards the end. Medium body, with a zesty mouthfeel and a dry finish.... Maybe slightly overcarbonated. Flavors are derived almost entirely from the hops...

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
Bouteille de 500 ml. La bière est de couleur cuivrée-orangée avec un nuage modeste qui lui sert de chapeau. Au nez des arômes de pin, de sapin, de fraises, de caramel et de houblon floral se présentent à mes papilles olfactives. En bouche la bière possède un corps mince-moyen. Des flaveurs de caramel suivie par du houblon sec, amère et tranchant en fait un excellent coupe-soif.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2007
bouteille brune de 500ml. bière cuivrée passablement foncée, col très épais et durable, onctueux, il est blanc cassé. nez de houblon très agréable, un peu vert (houblon frais) belle bouche ronde, finale houblonnée très agréable, bonne amertume, équilibre parfait.

dmac (4087) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle, poured a clear lt brown/coper/orange color with a large rocky white head. Aroma on this was bad, not just bad but real bad. Reminded me of a cross between a musty basement, bad chesse and dirty feet. Despite the wretched aroma I worked up some courage and took a sip. Wish I didn’t. Dry watery thin palate with not much original flaovr that finishes with a nice burst of lousy bitterness. Total drain pour.
