Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Caramel, bread, tiramisu, medium strong aroma. Deep amber, clear, white head about 2 fingers and medium long and leaves lacing. Fizzy carbonation, light body and feel, almost watery, malting on top: bread, nuts, lightly roasted caramel, finish also malty and bitter, dry and bitter. Bit thin but ok flavors still.

Cunningham (7716) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2012
Copper colour with a small white head. Toffee and fruity aroma. A bit weak sweet toffe, fruity and hoppy flavour. Medium body. Moderate sweetness and an ok bitterness. Absolutely one of the best beer you can get in a Swedish grocery store.
[Bottle from MaxiMat at Nordby Svinesund, Sweden]

Really delicious beer with a slight sweetness and good bitterness. One of the better lower alcohol beers.

rarbring (2288) - Linkping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: The smell is sweet toffee, brown bread, sour fruit notes, green apple peel, some fresh mowed lawn.
Appearance: The beer is clear copper amber, a slightly orange hued off-white head, rather high, settles slowly, leaves good lacing.
Taste: Upfront malt sweetness, molasses, then some riper fruits, pears, then a rather sharp chemical bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, rather thin and watery, lack of body, a dry twinge at the end that fades away rather slowly.
Overall: This beer is better in its stronger version, at this ABV it becomes a bit sharp and watery.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. Reviewed 2011-01-22.

Bottle. Pours dark golden with a small creamy head. Aroma is sour with yeast and lemon. Body is quite full, with moderate carbonation. Flavour is sweet with caramel and toffee, with a growing hop presence leaving a bitter orange peel finish.

ianwelby (1329) - SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle from the supermarket. Slightly fizzy at first with a frothy head. A balance flavour though its lighter than you might expect. A nice, drinkable beer.

True story: An ex girlfriend once slapped my best mate, very hard, for asking her if she had ever enjoyed Bishops Finger. Hoho... fun times.

dnoaksson (827) - , SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
Fr att vara s alkoholspinkig r det bra tryck i den hr. Fast stlld bredvid den fullblodiga len framstr 3,5:an nd som en halvfigur. Man kan suga p den hr fr att finslipa sin paradroll som martyr, men var beredd p att stmningen blir mer olustig n vllustig i s fall.

Tide (3727) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from super market. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with caramel, herbs and malts. Body lacks some depth. Dry bitter finish. Classic, enjoyable bitter.
