COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also Bottle Conditioned.
Originally the house beer for Limes Hotel in Fakenham.
Ingredients: Maris Otter; Crystal malt; Goldings hops. Tasting notes: A full-bodied pale amber beer with the rich flavour of Dundee cake. Sultana fruitiness is balanced by a hoppy bitterness, to give a full, but light feel. The finish continues to develop into a warm, mellow glow

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
29 Jan 2013: along side in Huatulco, Mexico. The sea and Modelo beers on the beach had kept me cool during the day, now back on board I needed something different. The 500ml bottle conditioned brewhad been with me since Southampton and had patiently waited in my fridge until thisday. Poured slowly into two tumblers it showed a good looking amber body with a full white head. Fruity, hoppy and with a mild citrus hint throughout the tasing. Really enjoyed itís flavours and although not as malty as I normally prefer, this was a good blend and well made. The body depth suited it too.

Martin243 (740) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
500 ml bottle cool, poured into an English pint. Clear amber with an off-white head. Not much aroma detectable, but I donít think Iím that good with aroma: What there is for me is faintly toffeeish. More toffee in the flavour, with dried fruit, and a floral hop note. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. I only bought this because it was the easiest way to tick "Norfolk" off my "Countryside" award stats, but Iím glad I did: Much better than expected! I really liked the floral hops.
