"Abbot Ale is the culmination of knowledge and skills that have developed over centuries of experience. Brewed longer to a unique recipe using pale, amber and crystal malts, making it a full flavoured, smooth and mature beer. This irresistible ale has masses of fruit characters, a malty richness and superb hop balance."

Bottle. Amber with small head. Marmite, earthy, rusty with medium body. Didn’t disappoint or impress...

Copper brown, small good looking off-white creamy head. Sweet toffeeish-caramelly nose. Medium-bodied. Starts oaky-hoppy, slightly sugary then hoppy bitter finish and aftertaste. A bit Fullers ESB -like ale.

Christian (13601) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
Amber beer with little head. Caramel and roast malt aroma, with some hops and honey, but the caramel is too dominating. The caramel is still there as it enters the mouth, but a rich hops flavour quickly takes over. Long bitter aftertaste.

exactoknife (4) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2005 does not count
A so so ale. Poured from can. Nice thick, creamy head on a medium brown body. Not very full-bodied or complex in flavor, has a sharp note of hop in the aftertaste.

Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Can foamed over the edge, widget device in can. Smooth white head with the creaminess the widgets build into the pour. Smooth with a touch of metallic flavor. Brown clear color, malty, but not overpowering with a weak hop note.

A big full flavoured "robust" ale, for me, hops dominate the palate, but it is a tad unbalanced to drink on its own, it perhaps would go down better with a meal, something to match the powerful flavours. Asda.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 [bottle from sainburys] pours light brown with a head which doesnt last well. Nose is mainly malty, some caramel notes, but there is something stale, toffee like and unpleasant going on (diacetyl?). body is decent, not a beer i enjoyed.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2005
I found this very hard to drink, the flavour is full but too full for what they are trying to achive. Cask will be different but not one id got for again.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2005
Orange-brown with delicate white head. Some maltyness in the aroma and huge earthy hop tones from english hops. Somewhat roasted with notes of peanut and rubber. Fresh hoppy flavor with notes of cream and maltsweetness. Hoppy finish which grows on you.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2005
This was a very nice Bitter. It was light and had a smooth flavor. Creamy finish and a good malt balance. I would drink another.
