I knew there was a reason commercial Brit ales turn me off...this is a glowing example.

Crystal clear amber color no cap to speak of... weak lacing...soft carbonation

Little aroma at all outside the lightest whiff of wet hay from the hops.

Weak body watery mouth feel, limp lacking character

hard to taste malt in this... all I get is a sort of weak "tea" decernment that seems to have been brewed with hops instead of tea leaves.

Weak and undefined taste from front to finish...disappointing..like experiencing a cold glass of weak watery tea. I wouldn’t even cook with this.

I'm pretty happy I picked this up today. I was looking around the LCBO for something that wasn't from Ontario and won't break the bank and picked this up out of luck. Best decision in a while.

Served from a can into a pint glass.

A: Transparent with a deep copper color. 1.5 inch head that quickly disappears. Solid lacing throughout. A few bubbles rising to the top.

S: Abbot Ale doesn't give off much of an aroma but there is something there. Has a sweet floral smell to it.

T: For me, this is where the beer shines through. At first, you get a nice sweet taste that kind of reminds me of strawberry-apple juice. Towards the middle you get something that tastes like Lyle's Golden Syrup. Finishes off with a bitter note that lingers.

M: I found it to be a bit on the light side. This wasn't a bad thing as it worked with the sweeter flavours it had. Has a nice smooth texture to it.

O: Abbot ale offers a mild experience with a great deal of character. The smooth and fruity feel of the beer makes it great for a session or replacement for fruit juice.

I still can't honestly believe that this beer is so cheap here in Ontario, Canada. It was $2.10 for a tall boy when i first saw it months ago, it's increased since however.

Pours a dark copper colour with a decent amount of head. Doesn't seem to give off a lot of aroma, but the taste is truly great. Feels like a cask ale, not overly carbonated. Lots of flavour, hints of caramel, maybe some raisins, hard to describe. You will not be disappointed though!

To me, it's a fruity, dark-ish beer with lots of character, at a great price. Seems like a winning combination.
