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.

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.

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.

GeoffClifford (1) - West Molesey, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2004 does not count
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.

SilkTork (5946) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2004
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.
