_angst_ (3850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2015
Draught @ Bishops Folkungagatan. Pours very hazy pale brownish red with a creamy offwhite head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and slightly floral with biscuits, caramel, grapefruit juice, moist grass, moist soil and orange peal. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly round, astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter with dark bread, biscuits, caramel, grapefruit juice, black currants, moist grass, moist soil, orange zest and lemon zest. Fairly harsh and caramel heavy. But ESB like really... Not a huge fan...

från fat på Bishop Arms Folkungagatan. Fruktig, fyllig öl med mycket smak trots den låga alkoholhalten. Karamelltoner som inte klibbar sig fast och fruktig amerikansk humle

(Draught at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, 20130313) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, dense and white. Aroma had fruitiness, citricness and pine. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, pine, grass, malts, white bread and bitterness. Afteraste was hoppy and bitter. A tasty low ABV pale ale. Good aroma and especially pleasant aftertaste. Put this in bottles and ship to Finnish supermarkets, please.

In short: Some kind of cranked-up ESB-ish beer. I love beers like this
How: Tap at The Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm (apparently exclusive to this location)
The look: Clear golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose has a lot of inviting English style leafy hops with also notes of tobacco and nice toasted notes. Taste is foamy caramelized malts, like sponge cake melting in your mouth. Also fresh bakery bread crust. And then a whole lot of leafy hops bringing cold iced-tea and tree leafs flavors. Mild bitterness, just enough to balance out the malts light sweetness. Very soft carbonation, almost cask-like which I found very fitting for this beer. This tasted like some kind of cranked up classic ESB, I love beers like this, a nice change of pace from the usual American style hoppy beers. I’m gonna go against the grain here and give this unpretentious session beer a very high score, I thought it was great, also giving the highest rating on a beer makes me feel like I won.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Tap @ Bishops Arm Stockholm. Clear dark appearance with a foamy, light brown head that has great lacing. Spicy, rye, piney, earthy aroma. Fairly toasty malty, earthy/herbal, bitter hoppy, somewhat spicy flavor with a mildly dry, bitter finish. Some nice flavors going on and honestly, I can’t tell if it actually has rye in it or if I’m just getting some spiciness from the hops. I picked this beer randomly from the tap list and didn’t even know it was a Narke until now.
