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

martpez (219) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2017
UPDATED: APR 12, 2017 Sharp dry hops with a metalic taste lovely head and dry fruit stickyness. Its okay but not a huge fan. Its lifted by a lovely silky texture the sprt that is rarely found in a 4.5% beer. On gravity: this is a different beast. Heavy toffee notes with a a dry finish. Lovely kept
