Bishop's\ Collar

Term originally used to indicate the exact half-inch of foam at top of a newly poured Guinness. Could also be used to indicate dismay at the large amount of foam at the top of a newly poured American beer.

What a rip-off. Look at the size of that bishop's collar the bartender gave you - that's at least 30% less beer - we should go kick his ass.
