Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Cask. Isis Tavern, Oxford. Hazy copper, nice sticky white head. Treacle, apricot and wood aroma. A bit heavy. Decent malty character to the flavor, though it quickly becomes sticky. My pint was sort of hard to finish.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Cask @ Zetland Arms, London. Pours a hazy brown-orange color with a frothy head. Aroma is malt with a bit of a citric and lemon zest characteristic. Sweet ale with a nice hop bitterness at the end of the taste. There is a bit of citrus as well. Very heavy on the tongue, but I liked it.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2007
Cask@Proeflokaal, Delft. Sold as The Abbot Blond, 4.4% ABV. Citric and sweet malty aroma. Hazy, orange/yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Very sweet, citric but this is hidden by the strong hop bitterness. Very sticky mouthfeel. Drinkable but only just.

jammin7jg (139) - Burnage, Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2007
[CASK: Old House From Home, West Didsbury, Manchester 11/08/06] Not bad for a Green King ale, a pleasant tast and a fair % (the one i tried was 5%). Doesn’t tast too strong and is easy drinking.

JohnnyOlhus (43) - Amager (Copenhagen), DENMARK - APR 16, 2007
Very fine ale with a nice hint of caramel. A very smooth ale, I think this a one of the most enjoyable beers.

cgarvieuk (16286) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2007
light amber with a bitter hoppyness, a perfectly drinkable pint but uninspired

Dedollewaitor (14339) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2007
Cask at hr. firtal, Odense; Clear amber brown with off white creamy head. Fruits & malts - caramel. Easy sweet with a dry hoppy finish! Better than the can/bottle version!
