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

Flaske (under navnet Marks&Spencer Norfolk Bitter), rett fra Stevens kjøleskap: en smaksrik bitter med toffee, brød og apsikat i førersetet. Semitørr avslutning gjør den til en lett anvendelig tørstedrikk.
