larsga (5967) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2008
Big light brown head. Light brown body with light carbonation. Roasty nutty caramelly aroma with hoppy notes. Kind of weak. Dry watery roasty nutty taste. Quite sweet, too. Dry wooden hoppy aftertaste. Too much water for my taste. (0.5l bottle from gr0ve.)

Copper colour with small to average creamy white head. Skunky hoppy dark bitter aroma with caramel. Strong dark hoppy flavour with some bitterness. Slightly watery but pretty good.

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.

Cunningham (4036) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2012
Copper colour with a small white head. Toffee and fruity aroma. A bit weak sweet toffe, fruity and hoppy flavour. Medium body. Moderate sweetness and an ok bitterness. Absolutely one of the best beer you can get in a Swedish grocery store.
[Bottle from MaxiMat at Nordby Svinesund, Sweden]

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2006
Nice brown colour, also the bottle looks very nice. Taste was a bit disappointing. It would be fine without that watery taste/aftertaste. Next time I will choose the stronger version of Bishops Finger.

OleR (4608) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2008
500 ml bottle. A two-finger dense beige head over a clear, plain brown colored body. Moderate aroma of caramellish malts with a nutty and light hoppy note. Taste is light malty and has a fair amount of earthy bittering hops. Feels somewhat watery in the mouth. Fine bitterness in the ending. Likeable.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. Light malty and moderate hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. Boring but nice looking.
