3.68/5 rDev +4.2%
On cask at the Belfast Beer Festival.
Pours copper-tinged with loose froth. Big fruity nose of mango malts and citrus hops, lots of flowers. Golden apple malts with a touch of burnt sugar, then citrus peel hops with hint of branch and spice. Malt forward overall. Medium, sticky, dry.
Good balance of sweet malts and citrus hops. A lean bite to it. OK bitter.
Actively brewed! So do beers just default to "retired" if they haven't had a new review in X number of months? This seems to be chronic among British ales.

3.38/5 rDev -4.2%
Tasted by half-pint at the Lord Moon of the Mall, a JDW pub nr. Trafalgar Sq., London.
A: dark golden hue, fluffy white beer head, great clarity, low carbonation--decent look.
S: spicy Styrian Goldings and hayish, earthy Fuggles with a zesty edge of yellow grapefruit-peel--very light, refreshingly hoppy.
T: dryish and zesty citric fruitiness upfront on top of very mild grainy maltiness with its bitter-sweet edge; soothing, bitter aftertaste comes with chewy, zesty (but not too much of a tang), dry palate, slightly reminiscent of a light lager made with rice.
M&D: light-bodied and lively-textured, a refreshing and quaffable Blond Ale but not quite attractive for my taste.
