Norwich Beer Festival – Beer Thoughts

I’d normally put up a review of each beer I try at Norwich Beer Festival onto Twitter but to avoid spamming that I’m going topic them into one big post here (Dan and Ali may join in too!)

I normally rate out of 10 on Appearance, Aroma, Taste, and Overall but might include more notes if motivated and there’s a couple of extra little suprises…

Just to quickly point out – these were drunk over several days, mainly in half pints, not all at Norwich Beer Festival but small local pub festivals too, and several people were involved in helping!
