Draught@SBWF 2007
Amber color, small creamy off-white head. Nutty hoppy aroma. Nutty hoppy flavor, a bit buttery. Boring ale, but you can drink this, if you don’t have anything else. Not as good as eg. Bishops Finger.

Sweetish and light bodied with some light papery malt, clean hard mouthfeel and low hop rate. Quite thin undeveloped malt character. Light mangoish hops gives a brief resiny bitterness.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 3, 2007
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.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2007
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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2007
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.

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - APR 20, 2007
Brown with a tint of red. Average head. Hoppy and dry. Woody undertones, nice rich aroma. A good ale but not spectacular.
