We got 6 ales between us - here are mine and the boyfriends choices:
First I tried the Reedcutter from Humpty Dumpty Brewary in Reedham, Norfolk and the boyfriend had Black Beauty Coffee Porter from Wagtail Brewary, Old Buckenham, Norfolk.
I don't really know alot about Ales, but the Reedcutter was delicious - very fresh and light with a malty taste that sat delightfully in the throat. Wagtail's Black Beauty was alot tastier than I expected - very smooth with only a hint of coffee which was intriguing rather than overpowering. Although not as throaty as the Reedcutter, the taste sat comfortably at the back of the tongue. Both the boyfriend and I felt very smug sitting in Norfolk supping on Norfolk Ale's, it must be said :)
