3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms
Black color; creamy head. Nice and delicate aroma of roasted malt, with Digestive cookies and light hops. Medium-light body, the flavor is basically from the roasted malt, with a touch of acidity deriving. The final is bitter with too much burnt sugar. Not bad, but too monodimensional for me.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2007 Draught at SBWF 06 as Höstbryg. I wonder if this is the one. The aroma and flavour are sour, but OK balanced out by some malt.
