Tried this one for the first time in a couple of years.

Overall a nice english ale (or esb/premium bitter/strong ale to be, eh, precise). Lovely smell: toffee, dried fruits, butter; light floral hops; and some mineral note I cant really nail down. Taste is basically along the same lines. To conclude - tired of modern style pale ales or even ipa? - try this. Lots of flavors, but in another way.

My absolute favorite! I used to buy the Bishop for $5.00 a pint when I lived in Japan. Can't seem to find it here in the US though :(
