3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/2 pint at the Bishops’ Arms, Malmo
A clean amber pint with a small head and good lacing as you drain your glass. This is a beer for those with a sweet tooth. The sweet caramel aroma sets the scene and the taste is sweet malt flavour with a hint of fruit and a medicinal tang. It has a nice long, satisfying aftertaste too. A very drinkable house ale but nothing more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good ale this one, but not Shep’s best (with a small "b"). They only seem to serve this up there in East Kent; I can never get this on tap in Medway only in Faversham and Canters. Anyway, it is a distinctively Neame brew with that hoppy aftertaste. A bit more malty and sweet than a Spit or Late Red, more like a weaker/poor man’s Bish Finger.

Draught at Bishops Arms, Lund, Sweden. Clear dull amber colour with a low dissapearing white foam. Metallic aroma with notes of fudge and grass. Thin flavour of toffee and metal with smild and short finish. Pretty lame offering.

Bottle - London
Creamy copper and completely average. Smells good, tastes nice and gives some hop satisfaction.
But immediately forgotten when the next ale was sampled.
