Brewed specially for the Peterborough Beer Festival and generally available thereafter. Amber in colour and featuring an awesome Simcoe hop aroma. Definitely a cut above.

Cask, gravity at the White Horse, (Mill green Brewpub), Edwardstone, Suffolk 20-10-09 Pours amber with a white head, good clarity. Fruity but there is also an interesting dried herby thing going on here, nicely bitter, tasty stuff. A6 A4 F7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Pours a deep copper, lovely nose, that resin & grapefruit really coming on strong from the simcoe hops. This is just lovely fresh quaffing ale, clean as a whistle, malty with a vibrant citrus bite, then a juicy barley & bitter finish. I could quite happily get slowly pickled on this over a lazy evening.

From cask at Old Fountain. Pours clear and golden orange witha small white head. Peachy hops fruity aroma. Nice peachy and dry hops flavoured. Rather dry and light bodied. Light leathery note. Fruity and crisp bitter and dry finish.

Cask at peterborough beer fest 2009. Alround rating: Brown ale malt comes over the pale, subtly fruity, grassy hop in the finish. Lacking the citrus bite.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 16/09/09. My impressions of this beer were probably affected by the pint of Oakham Oblivion sample minutes before. The more subtle hops and bready malts of Posh were muted to start with, but as more of the pint was consumed, the passionfruit edge of the Simcoe hops and decent, bitter finish came through. Good stuff.
