Having recently been on an Ale kick I wanted to try the Green King brewery ale's and went about getting Wexford Irish Cream Ale along with the Abbot Ale

The Abbot ale is not a bad beer, but a bit too bitter for my liking, the head on the beer was very thin and wore away quickly

Side by side with Wexford it is a superior beer, but I would rather have a Tetley's in this style

I think it is probably a decent beer for the style, just not my favorite ale - if this was maybe 10 ibu's less bitter I would enjoy it much more

Poured into my Hobgoblin pint glass from the bottle.

Appearance. Amber with a slight red warmth shining through. Bit too similar to lager for my tastes. The head quickly reduced to nothing after a few minutes.

Smell: There is a warmth and maybe some slight chocolatey or spicyness.

Taste: The taste mirrors a fainter smell, though there is more of a lager taste to it (i'm not sure what else to call it).

Mouthfeel: Fairly fizzy when held in the mouth.

Overall: I thought i would enjoy this more than i did, it was a bit too similar to the generic lagers in the pub to my untrained palette.

500 ml can.

A: Pours a clear dark copper color with a nice white head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, some malt sweetness light citrus and bit of fruit in the background.

T: Mild taste of roasted malt, bit of caramel sweetness and fruit. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Moderate body, smooth with nicely balanced.

O: Nice beer for the style.
