Rather quiet on a Friday lunchtime.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Norfolk Square - Norwich Bear Classic3.80ExcellentVery malty pale golden ale. Lots of biscuity malt, not much hop to balance. Brewed for the pub whilst its own brewery is being built. My score 16/20.
Norfolk Square - Norwich Bear Legend4.30ExcellentHad just run out, but was served from the cellar from a fresh cask by the very helpful staff. Very similar in character to the "Classic" with biscuity malt to the fore and hops in the background. Presumably these beers appeal to the Norfolk tastebuds - they do mine. My score 16/20.

Popped in for a pub lunch, lot's of people here for the same thing which is a good sign. It was a lovely day so sat in the garden. This is a good pub.

Not as busy as it felt like it should be. The barman was a little ott in telling us how good his beers were. I'm not saying they weren't good, but he should have toned it down a bit. I shouldn't be complaining about someone getting excited about beer, oh well. Good pub though.
