Such is the effect of Abbot, that when one is admitted to casualty, the ambulance staff merely mark one's forehead with "Abbot" in green ink, and no anaesthetic is needed.mjones said:I'm a Greene King IPA fan. Indeed I can attest to its curative properties: a few years ago I had an unexplained tooth ache- it seemed to spread across my jaw in stabbing spasms, as if all the muscles in my jaw had cramp. Yet after an evening in the pub and a pint or four of IPA, the pain vanished and didn't return!
