Hardys & Hansons Abstinence


Formerly brewed at Greene King
Bury St. Edmunds, England
Style: Golden Ale/Blond Ale | Ratings: 3 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 3.6%
Cask; Special - January 2006.
After the traditional excesses of the festive season, surely every real ale lover’s New Year’s resolution should be to start the year with a pint of Abstinence.
Although it cannot be claimed that Abstinence will necessarily make the heart grow fonder, true connoisseurs of the brewer’s art will undoubtedly love this refreshingly light, pale golden cask conditioned ale with its delicate fruity flavour and distinctive hoppy aroma.
Made from only the finest pale ale malt brewed to perfection with best quality English hops, at only 3.6% ABV, Abstinence truly is the most remarkably good post festive season ale.
