Roger Protz: "Norman's Pride has a pronounced hop resin aroma with tart hops and juicy malt in the mouth, and a long hoppy finish."

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: obtained from Norman himself when visiting his brewpub. Poured at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 19 Jun 2013. No sediment appeared to leave the bottle: slight haze to my old gold/amber coloured beer, on top a full and lasting head of off-white bubbles. Norman, you’ve sold me a pup! On the turn, this isn’t right. Smells OK, malts and fruitiness fill the nose nicely. The taste however is ’on the turn’, not undrinkable, but not far off: this is going to go through me like a dose of ’you know what’ but I’ll not throw it away, I’m too mean. A Red Leicester Cheese and Branston Pickle roll helped me make it through the brew: well half of it anyway, I did have to drain pour some. I shouldn’t really post this: but this is the third beer I’ve had to pour away from this brewpub and I didn’t write about the other two out of politeness to Norman who I know fairly well. Sorry Norman, but you must not sell beers that are off!

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2009
Cask Conditioned Handpump Criterion Leicester. A light amber coloured beer with an off-white thin head. The aroma is fairly sweet and fruity with a faint hint of vinegar. The taste is also on the sweet side with berries. Decent enough but would prefer less chewy fruitiness.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Dartford Beer Fest. Biscuit and toffee pale malt with a light dusting of fragrant hops. Lovely balance. Quite drinkable and pleasant. Though it possibly lacks the character, charm and interest for a really impressive beer, this could grow on me. [3.9]
