UPDATED: JUN 4, 2012 Aug, 2003 Bishops Finger is a decent ale. From first gulp to last swallow it always pleases and delights. It invites you to sit down and relax, and gently encourages you to take another pint. Not a session beer, but a pint to enjoy. [3.2]
Sept, 2004 A smooth and delicious ale - some fruit and chocolate notes. Mild hops. One of my favourite premium ales. [3.6]
March, 2011 A smooth ale with some barleysugar notes. Hops gradually emerge. Pleasant, but felt somewhat lacklustre when compared with Abbot. [3.1],br>
June, 2012 Chocolate notes and rough tobacco hops on a flat pale malt. Hmmm. [2.7]

Bottle - 586ml. Superb dark amber body topped with a nice off-white bubbly head. Nice hoppy (Fuggle) aroma with some spicy and roasty hints. Taste is definitely dominated by the hoppy flavors. There are also some brown sugar and fruity hints. Nice and long bitter finish. Perfect for a rainy evening.

Medium white head, red-amber colour. Definitely tastes smoked. Well-balanced, not too bitter, very good thirst quencher with just the right amount of bitterness. Smoked aftertaste. Altogether very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Quite a delicious ’anytime’ beer is this one. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a dimple glass, a short soapy off-white head formed atop a clear amber body. Aroma was malt driven, lightly roasted grain, toffee and a little caramel. Taste was quite balanced with intensely sweet malt tones and floral, Kentish hops adding a little citrus-fruit. Mouth feel is a little watery, though, and the medium carbonation didn’t seem to help. Much better as it warmed showing a little complexity and good length with a lightly bitter and sweet malty swallow. Quite a nice tasty drop..

Aroma: some floral notes with lots of malty toffee. Appearance: dark tea amber, good holding just off white head, good lacing. Flavour: malt, hops & some spiritousness. Palate: thin to medium mouthfeel with a long hop aftertaste.

Cask at Pig and Wistle, Chignal Smealey.
A full flavoured beer and also hops in evidence. A little unbalanced with the sweet bitterness. Needs to ferment further maybe.
