This beer is produced by a microbrewery that is associated with a restaurant. The restaurant serves the beers which can also be purchased for home consumption in growlers.

This is a beautifully colored non-heavy beer. Its aroma and taste have a slight hint of citrus fruit. I went and got a growler of this when Precious was out of town visiting her mother. It was so good that the next day I went back and got two more growlers. (434 characters)

Hazy pale golden with a decent white head and good carbonation throughout. Spicy hop aroma with a light fruitiness. Belgian malt flavors dominate and alcohol is evident as it warms. Medium bodied but leans light for the strength.

Note: This review was based on pints from the Sterling, VA location. 7.4% ABV per the chalkboard at the brewpub.

Per Sweetwater Website: "Bishop's Pass Ale -- a Belgian style golden ale...full malt body & spicy fruit aroma...the golden color belies the complexity of this beer" (513 characters)
