No 99 - Greene King Abbot Ale (England)

There have been lots of cans lately, for some reason - ah well, this was another - and a really good one at that!
The nose is on the dark side for a english ale with, lovely notes of sweet dark malt, dark fudge, chocolate mousse and that captivating touch of a wet carpet...:-) Very, very good. Lots of interests here.
The taste is fine, dark fruity and deep with a great bitterness and notes of dried orange peels, semi mature banana and some undergrowth. Long and very good. Very stylish.

89p   (tasted from can - 2011/04)
