Cask. Slightly sappy. Pale in colour. Quite subdued flavours with some sweetness. Very easy to drink. DanielBrown (4578) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2004
Hand pulled at the Bartons Arms, Birmingham, during their recent beer festival. Sampled with maeib. Pale gold, no head. Stirring honey/herb aroma. Very pleasant silky golden brew. Strong honey and floral flavour. Some assorted fruit in an insistent, heady cocktail of taste, which is excellently balanced. A tinge of strength to finish, but easily hidden and smooth.

Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Mellow and sweet with a bitter citrus finish. Nice. Drinks dangerously below its gravity. tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - AUG 12, 2004
A really good beer, full of hops, slightly sweet (perhaps because of the 5.2% abv) but very easy to drink. Can be compared with Pale Rider of Kelham Island (Champion Beer 2005) but in think the Abbeydale beer is better. pughy1957 (62) - Rugby, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2004
Fabulous. If you get the chance to drink absolution try it. This is a real ale fans dream. Absolution must rate as one of abbeydales best.

I am a declared Guinnes drinker but I found Abbeydale Absolution at a beer festival recently and I can’t fault it at all. chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2004
A bit bland for a premium strength beer. Insipid pale colour. Sweetish malt aroma. Quite nice balance in the flavours at the start, but tails off towards the finish, leaving a slightly cloying sweetness. Cask (gravity), London Drinker beer festival.

London Drinker. Gravity. Pale yellow. Sweetly malt with a fragrant citric hop hint aroma. Medium bodied. Satisfying. Sweetish, but gently so. More full bodied at the front, going thin at the back. Greasy caramel malt. OK. RichardGretton (4883) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2003
Flat looking beer with a very hopped and slightly sour flavour. The aroma is citrusly hopped. A good standard hopped ale. leaparsons (10906) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2003
Quite pale in colour for this type of beer. Light sweet malts are complemented by a clean floral hoppiness. This has flavours below its alcohol so be careful, because this is quite drinkable.
