[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.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2007
At the Olde School House, Aberdeen. Clear amber with a dense but fading white head. Aroma is strongly malty, with toffee and caramel predominate as well as some interesting notes of dried fruit. Taste is much the same, with a flash of citrus overwhelmed by toffee, heavier sugar fruits, and a rich caramel. Quite sweet in many respects, and slightly watery.

light amber with a bitter hoppyness, a perfectly drinkable pint but uninspired

Dedollewaitor (14205) - 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!

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.

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.
