3.25/5  rDev -9%

Pours a ruddy brown color, but no head at all (bad pour from the barkeep?). Aroma is light and malty. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, leading to a flavor of sweet malt, and hints of cocoa and caramel. Malt comes through again in the finish. Low hop profile. This one reminds me of an English style bitter. Apparently very different on tap versus cask.

Served cask conditioned on hand pull at John Harvard's Manchester, the Mad Bishop arrived in the glass with a beautiful cascade and a creamy white head piled high that sticks with you through most of the beer. Color is a reddish brown and is quite clear. Aroma is fairly malty, with just a bit of hops in the nose. Taste is hoppy most of the way through, but a very nice chocolate malt flavor emerges midway and carries through to a nice finish, leaving you with just a bit of hop bitters. Very smooth brew and highly drinkable.
