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

RichardW (1551) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle conditioned (as M&S Norfolk Bitter). Medium reddy-brown beer with a thin white head. Dry, papery taste and almost a bit too green which, for me, is an all too common trait of UK BCAs. Slightly acrid flavour at the back of the throat, with a biscuity aftertaste and some hints of apple and blackcurrant. Disappointing for a Woodfordes brew.

Alphadelic (1769) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 A crisp, clean looking ale. Nutty brown in colour with a little ring of nicotine-stained head. Lightly fruity and green with a big-hopped aroma. Very well rounded immediately, Intense hops are quick to disperse. Through them come a sweet maltiness with a tickly little carbonation. Biscuitty with a yogurt thickness. Blends away to a bittersweet finish that seems to crumble in te mouth. The hops have a really great flavour to them in this beer. Heavy and delicious. A killer session.
