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.

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...

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.

dmac (5598) - 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.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
Bouteille (avant mai 2007). Couleur rouge-brunâtre, mince mousse qui reste, belles traces sur le verre. Arôme de malt caramel, houblons floraux fruités. Goût torréfié, caramel, houblons agrumés, finale en amertume et saveur épicé. Affervescence faible à modérée, corps moyen. Excellente bitter, et même à date de péremption, elle semble fraîche.

This one can from a 1/2 liter bottle. The color is a nice amber with a beige head. It has a nice aroma of hops with the taste of caramel and of cours malt. The bitterness of this beer is just right to live up to its name. Looking forward to drinking more of this one.

Bouteille de demi litre. Couleur thé, moyen collet. Arome d’houblon un peu amère et florale assez bien. Goût d’houblon légé et bien amère.

probstblueribbon (3718) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2007
500 mL bottle from Montreal (Joanette).
App.: golden-orange, clear with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma: Piney, resinous hops hit first, under that is caramel and toffee maltiness, and a sort of earthy nuttiness. Palate: medium body, medium carbonation. Flav.: floral-pine hops, some of the caramel maltiness, fairly substantial bitterness in the finish and a hint of that earthy quality.
A very competent brew. Thank you, Bishop.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear amber with an average size diminishing fluffy white head. Very nice UK hop aroma along with some fruit and caramel malt, it smells great. Tasty flavour of floral and citrus hops with some caramel malt and a long spicy bitter finish. Body’s a touch thin. A great ESB, we were all shocked that such a nice version of the style was from Quebec and not the UK -- very well done.
