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

500 ml bottle as M&S Norfolk Bitter. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear amber colour with a small white head. Citrus hops, mild bitter notes and sweetish maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is mild citrus hops, woody dryness, mild sweetness and malt. Not the worst.
