From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Gibbs Mew The Bishop’s Tipple Special Ale". Clear orange gold color with a large beige head. Light toasted malt nose. Semi-sweet spicy foretaste. Bittersweet malty finish. Dry hoppy aftertaste of long duration. Mildly complex and flavorful. Ale-like and full-bodied. Well rounded and tasty.

Fro notes. 1997 tasting. Bottle. Clear amber color with a thin white head that disappeared quickly and left scant lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Flavor has lots of malts, some citrus, and a bit of light spice. Slightly bitter finish. Nice. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2006

(Bottle 50 cl) 5.5% ABV in my version. Neat amber coloured beer with a small, dense head. Very soft and smooth with notes of lightly sweet caramel and a wee touch of smoke. 200500 johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2005
Medium head upon pouring with a full body.Quite hoppy with a pleasant flowery aftertaste.For some reason it reminded me of several Shepherd Neame brews.

Poured from the bottle, a light brown with a medium frothy head which disappeared. A very malty aroma, slightly spicy. A fruity malty taste, with a good bitterness in the mouth. Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2004
A red beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of fruit especially peach as well as yeast. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of peach and a dry hoppy end. madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2004

Amber, not much head.
Toffee- and perfume-aroma.
Rather sweet with some chocolate and toffee and fine bitterness. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2004
Amber colour. Aroma of burnt sugar. Sweet malty flavour, with maybe a bit too much butterscotch. Also a little harsh and one dimensional.
