Tasting notes from Norman Knight (2004). Amber-brown with thin head. Sweet malt and biscuit aroma notes. Fruity malts with balancing citrus flavours. Dry finish. Nice, but prefer the "toad" for a session.

Cask conditioned and handpulled at the Brunswick, Derby. Looks like I got the rogue barrel, then; barnyard aroma, salty taste. Not promising.

cracking session bitter, very nice brown hue slightly malty and a nice bitter sweet aftertaste. Cask at the Norman Knight on a Monday lunchtime, was on a mini tour and although the pub was closed Mike was brewing at the back of the pub, took some time to show me round and very pleasant mini visit it was too

Cask Conditione, The Norman Knight, Whichford. Mid brown with thin white head, good condition. Sweet, malt flavour with some bitterness. The brewery has been set up in a small village pub. 1.25 barrels in size the can produce 4 to 5 nines a week, all of which are consumed through the pub. This is their Boys Bitter which is an easy drinking faultless bitter. A good start to the tour through the pubs beers.
