COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Reduced from 5.5% to 5% abv before May 2013.
A strong, citrus, zingy ale. Deceptively light in colour with zesty taste and a lingering hop finish. A well known and respected strong ale.
The Bishop’s Tipple is brewed from 94% low colour malt from Optic barley and 6% cane sugar. Bitterness units of 38-42 are obtained from substantial quantities of Saaz and Styrian Goldings hops. One third of these are reserved for the hopback plates for enhanced flavour and aroma.

On cask Ruishton Inn (9/6/12) - Deep amber body with a medium white head. Nose of caramel and fruit with a bit of hop. The flavour was sweet, with more fruit, brown sugar and a warming alcohol finish.

The Linden Tree, Bursledon. 5%. A pleasant golden ale. Soft biscuit malt with light tropical fruit hops. This is more malt than hops. An easy drinking and very pleasant. beer. I like Wadworth’s ales. Nothing elaborate, but good everyday drinking beers. Nicely done. Flavoursome, and not assertive.

JoeMcPhee (8817) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
Pale amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma has a bit of toffee and a touch of light fruit as well as some light sulfur. A little bit of sweet fruit and some nice soft zestiness. Has a little bit of toasted malt character. Light but pleasant.

Draft. While it may be an ESB this one wasn’t as good as many of the regular bitter’’s I’ve had around Oxford. Medium clear amber pour without a head. While this one was hoppier than others (though still very low) I found the palate to be the thinnest. Additionally beyond some main biscuity malt there was little complexity.

Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A hazy golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of fruits, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, buttercitch, and honey, leading to a bitter finish.
