Abbot Ale

This crystal clear amber coloured ale is brewed by Greene King in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England. It's topped with a frothy white head and contains just a touch of carbonation. Abbott Ale is sold in 500mL cans and contains 5% alcohol.

Abbott has a mild aroma, with notes of metallic bitterness. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, and the flavour is characterized with some slight caramel notes wound up in a spool of bitterness. Underlying it all is a pleasing dose of copper taste.

This is a pretty fine bitter ale. It's easy-drinking, smooth, and decently hoppy. It isn't unbelievable, but it's a fair little brew. I suggest taking it for a test-drink.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
