jackl (7098) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Cask @ The Harp. Medium amber pour with a creamy head. Nose is a touch muted. Mild bready malt. Some hay. Light accents of citrus fruit and mild cheese. Flavor is fairly well balanced. Nice biscuit ballast. Light leafiness. More citrus comes through on the finish. Light body. Soft texture and carbonation. Very quaffable. Good stuff.

ippopotamo36 (1905) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 2, 2016
Handpump at the Harp in London. Ancient golden color quite clear with a frothy beige foamy cap. Nose: quite malty with a pungent and generous spicy hoppiness. Mouth: a bit watery, session orientation and evident peppery finish (hops). Solid! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2009
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.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2009
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.

downender (8052) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2009
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.
