rarbring (1800) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: The smell is sweet toffee, brown bread, sour fruit notes, green apple peel, some fresh mowed lawn.
Appearance: The beer is clear copper amber, a slightly orange hued off-white head, rather high, settles slowly, leaves good lacing.
Taste: Upfront malt sweetness, molasses, then some riper fruits, pears, then a rather sharp chemical bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, rather thin and watery, lack of body, a dry twinge at the end that fades away rather slowly.
Overall: This beer is better in it’s stronger version, at this ABV it becomes a bit sharp and watery.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. Reviewed 2011-01-22.

Bottle from the supermarket. Slightly fizzy at first with a frothy head. A balance flavour though it’s lighter than you might expect. A nice, drinkable beer.

True story: An ex girlfriend once slapped my best mate, very hard, for asking her if she had ever enjoyed Bishop’s Finger. Hoho... fun times.

dnoaksson (726) - , SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
För att vara så alkoholspinkig är det bra tryck i den här. Fast ställd bredvid den fullblodiga ölen framstår 3,5:an ändå som en halvfigur. Man kan suga på den här för att finslipa sin paradroll som martyr, men var beredd på att stämningen blir mer olustig än vällustig i så fall.

Tide (2155) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2012
