COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also Bottle Conditioned.
Originally the house beer for Limes Hotel in Fakenham.
Ingredients: Maris Otter; Crystal malt; Goldings hops.
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

wheresthepath (1733) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2011
[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.
