Nothing satisfies me like a Bishops finger...or ten! At least in a Sheapered Neame pub anyway. lulubernardo (10) - santa branca, - JAN 12, 2014
Uma ale com sabor leve, agradável. Não é muito encorpada, mas tem um sabor marcante! Muito boa! AleAficionado (1) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2009 does not count
I had my first Bishops Finger as an exchange student living in London, where I became very fond of it. Bishops Finger is a ruby-red to nut-brown color with a foamy, off-white head. It has a rich malty smell with fruity overtones, but the hop aroma is somewhat more dominant. It has the aroma and appearance of a very traditional British ale.
To the ale drinker, the beauty of Bishops Finger is contained in its flavor. It is full-bodied with fruity overtones. There are nutty flavors and the taste edges toward chocolate malt, but is accompanied by a strong hop presence which adds a balancing bitterness. The finish is of smoked malt, which leads to a hoppy, slightly fruity aftertaste with a bittersweet finish.
Each time I am lucky enough to enjoy a Bishops Finger, it brings back memories of Quinn’s Pub, in the Camden neighborhood of London, where I spent many nights enjoying this fine ale with my friends. It’s unfortunate that Bishops Finger is not currently imported to the United States.

A fizzy with caramel -chocolate malt taste and amber color like. Overall it’s a decent beer. nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Aroma is fantasically malty. Pours with a decent head and in a beautiful deep crimson colour. Great malt and fruity flavour that is not overy complex. Perfectly quaffable as part of a session. A masterpiece, made from water from a 300 year old well, Superb!

Recenzja 20 sierpnia 2011 Rewelacyjny zapach, w którym można wyczuć nuty żywiczne, waniliowe, owocowe, a nawet bananowe. W smaku dominuje goryczka, piwo jest mocno wytrawne, jednak goryczka jest na poziomie akceptowalnym. Poza chmielowym głównym uderzeniem w tle lekko przebijają się nuty owocowe i wanilia. fatherpierre (62) - Leeds, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2002
Lovely. Full flavoured and hoppy with a satisfying aftertaste. What proper beer is all about. RobBestwick (930) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
