Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

We must have a trip to Cambridge. I'll show you a pint of Abbott that'd maybe change your mind. Far as I'm concerned, if one pub (Free Press) can get it so right then the beer is basically good but the cellarmanship is poor.

I blame the sales pitch which says "deliver Grrene king at lunchtime, ready to serve by dinner". It may be clear but it still won't be fit to drink for days, but time is money and a beer sitting in a cellar not being sold is losing money. That's why it's mostly sold in crap condition.

Maybe.  To me, Abbott Ale seemed to be a mixture of cardboard and maple syrup, but it may have been the result of poor cellarmanship.  I tried Olde Trip, Bombardier, Abbott, Guinness (to get rid of the Abbott taste), and some kind of bitter served at Harry Ramsden's restaurant.
