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

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2004
The aroma is very fresh hoppy on a malty and yeasty background. The color is a clear orange and it has a beutiful lasting white head. The flavor is also very fresh with on a sweet background it contains strong notes of hops, both aroma and bitter, fruit (oranges), oil, and grass. Before it ends on a great bitterness that leaves a hoppy dryness on the tongue. A great bitter - and mine was even bottle conditioned.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2003
Sampled cask conditioned at Akkurat. Stockholm, Sweden.
Amber coloured with flowery aroma. Light bodied, and rather sweet and a tad buttery. Mild with well rounded mouthfeel and low bitterness. Not bad, but doesn't live up to my high expectations of Woodforde's ales.

harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2005
Cask at Bohemian, Deal. Hop nose is reminiscent of Wherry but this has more body from the extra alcohol. Overall a really good beer, that I would have been happy to drink all afternoon.
