[Bottle from "my good man" at the Bacton Shop, Bacton, Norfolk] Good to find a small village shop next to a coastal caravan park stocking local ales - and the proprietors were exceptionally friendly too! This beer was a reddish-amber, with orange and strawberry coming through. Its mellow and warming, but rather vague. OK, nevertheless.

Solid biscuit body, some mid fruits, yeast and a decent finishing toasty, grassy bitterness. Light to medium body, good length finish, softish carbonation.
