Draught. I like a pint of this is the fall. Good beer if your only grabbing a couple down at the pub.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ The Willow Walk. Medium amber pour with a small off-white head. Not unattractive. The nose is a bit of berry, twig, caramel, and that strange house aroma that GK beers seems to have. The taste is mild sweet malts, brown bread, a splash of red apple. Weird fart-like taste. Medium body. Overall, acceptable, but nothing to be excited about. Meh.

Abbot ale on tap at the Albanach, Edinburgh. Clear reddish gold ale with a thin light head. Aroma of mild hoppy notes, a mild bitter taste with some fruity notes. Pleasant, if unchallenging drinking.

21st September 2012 and a hand-pulled pint of this beer was poured for me in the excellent ĎWhite Hartí in Shifnal, Shropshire.
Canít believe Iíve not reviewed the cask version before: Iím putting that right at last. The glass was full of a clear amber/copper coloured body with an off-white head of foam which hung around and left some heavy lacing as the beer level fell away.
The nose was of semi-sweet malty molasses with fruitiness from the hops: the taste wasnít far away from that either. This is a pleasant, good quality bitter and although Iím not a huge Greene King fan you canít knock this brew.
Iím sure it had more flavour years ago, but my memory is fading, so it might not have changed at all?
