ekstedt (6526) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2007
Draught at Bishops Arms, Västra Hamngatan, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear copper, longlasting off-white head. Fruity, almost cidery malt aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. Well balanced, with a long and dry finish.

Ethereal (2421) - 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 (910) - 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.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2007
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.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2007

Malty, light caramelly flavour with a strange bitterness. Light bready, light bitter finish. Rather earthy/spicy and a bit fruity. Light to medium body with a touch of roastyness. Light but tart/alcoholy dryness.
