3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cl bottle. Copper/clear brown with small head. The aromas are not intensive and the beer needs to be served warmer and in a more appropriate for aroma preserving glassware. Mostly toast, grains, delicate dried fruits, watered honey and some little vanilla muffin. Mouth feel is watery but on the creamy side. Flavor is juicy malts with notes of roasted toast and muffin bottom. Some flowery honey and dreid fruits make the nose quite satisfied while sipping on it. The finish is medium bitterness that it quite typical for a roasted bitter with noble hops. Not bad.

En lille aroma af karamel, honing og humle. Smagen er til gengæld god af karamel, malt og en del sødme, med afslutning af citrus og tør græs

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml clear glass bottle, filtered, from Tesco. I’ve had this unfiltered from the cask a few times and really liked it. In the bottle there are problems. The clear glass allows the hops to become light struck, so there’s an initial stewed aroma. The filtering has reduced character and flavour. And the forced carbonation creates the wrong mouthfeel. The beer beneath all this bad treatment is solid though. Good malt nicely balanced with fully integrated hops. It doesn’t feel 6.5%, and I’m wondering how much that extra abv has impacted on the regular Abbot, a bottled or canned drink I can enjoy as an everyday drink. This is OK, but the flaws hold it back.

Way too much flavors of liquor and alcohol. Not balanced at all and the hops are completely gone.

Orange/copper pour with a thin off white head. Toffee, malty, dried fruit but a bit of a nasty funk under it. Malty, almost toffee flavour, sweet, a little dried fruit
