3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Brownish pale amber, firm head. Rich flowery hop aroma with a touch of grapefruit. Dryish and lightly caramelly. Medium bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Citric, flowery hops are quite dominant and lead to a finish with light resiny bitterness. The clean mouthfeel leaves a void, the flavours fade too quickly throwing the beer somewhat out of balance. A flavourful American style premium bitter. I’d like more depth in the malt department and less clean crystal malt character for it to work as a warming autumn beer.
