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

BlackHaddock (6986) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
29 Jan 2013: along side in Huatulco, Mexico. The sea and Modelo beers on the beach had kept me cool during the day, now back on board I needed something different. The 500ml bottle conditioned brewhad been with me since Southampton and had patiently waited in my fridge until thisday. Poured slowly into two tumblers it showed a good looking amber body with a full white head. Fruity, hoppy and with a mild citrus hint throughout the tasing. Really enjoyed itís flavours and although not as malty as I normally prefer, this was a good blend and well made. The body depth suited it too.

Bottle as M&S Norfolk Bitter. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. NIce bitter and malty aroma.Seems floral bitter. Med body. Flavor is roast malt with a good dose of hop - which still seems floral. Finish is clearly bitter. Itís a tasty ale.

Martin243 (1120) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
500 ml bottle cool, poured into an English pint. Clear amber with an off-white head. Not much aroma detectable, but I donít think Iím that good with aroma: What there is for me is faintly toffeeish. More toffee in the flavour, with dried fruit, and a floral hop note. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. I only bought this because it was the easiest way to tick "Norfolk" off my "Countryside" award stats, but Iím glad I did: Much better than expected! I really liked the floral hops.

jamesie1857 (2016) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
500ml bottle - Pours dark copper with little head. On the nose there is some caramel malt and citrus hops. Sweet at first and then the bitter yeast hop feel come right afterward. Earthy. Dry finish. okay for a session, but nothing special.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - OCT 15, 2012
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.
