UPDATED: MAR 24, 2013 Bit of a bog standard bitter really but only from the point of view of the flavour, which is solid but unexciting. The quality is good. Medium bodied. Session worthy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this in Sea Palling, Norfolk in June 2002. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby red in colour with a thick white creamy head. Strong vinous fruit in the aroma and good mouthfeel with excellent lacing. Loads of crystal malt in this one with crushed strawberry fruit notes juicy in mouth. Slight metallic tang of dry hop resin in the aftertaste but summer berry fruits still evident in the sweet but dry vinous finish. A good summer session ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[500ml bottle, gift from Maureen & Dave - cheers!] Murky pale amber with a thin off-white head. Fruity, yet a little sour. Some earth & flowers. A little dryness, a little bitterness. Below par for what I normally think is a decent brewery.

M&S Norfolk Bitter: Bottle - Strong wheat smell with some caremel plus apple and malt,. Opaque Brown colour. Prickly Carbonation with a medium Body. Sweet at first and then the bitter yeast hop feel come right afterward. Earthy. Dry finish. The yeast doesnít help it. Enjoyable
