Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with light notes of caramel, and so is the flavor. The body is thin (no woder).

omhper (19381) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2003
Bottled. Looks nearly the same as the regular Bishops Finger, but my guess is that it's made according to the following recipe:
Take 36cl of Bishops Finger. Add 20cl of tap water - and voilá, we've made a pint of metallic, thin watery ale.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2003
Light amber color. Poor aroma, cheap. Very light taste, with just some caramel and rather bitter final. They just added water…
