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.

Pours a clear coppery color with a hefty and quite solid just off-white head,
The aroma is quite weak and pretty neutral, only small hopy are detectable.
The taste starts sweetish and fruity and following this after same time there is a pleasant bitter taste.
The finish is nicely bitter with that feeling staying with you for some time.
Very nice and very drinkable. Thumbs up.
