A deep golden ale, with fruity and tangerine hop notes. Named for the infamous stretch of the North Cornish and Devon Coast.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Tangerine and lemon citrus on the nose, pretty decent smelling. Taste has citrus with biscuit and butterly malt. Slightly piney notes in there too and a mild bitterness on the finish. So far the best Penpont beer I have had, really quite drinkable and nice, shame it’s a bit thin and watery which lets it down a bit.

Cask conditioned handpump Sun Hardingstone 06/12/13. A golden coloured beer. A standard beer. A bit thin in the nose. Nicely balanced in the mouth. Late orangey citrus notes. Palateable but plain.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold, lightly effervescent with a fine, creamy white head. Nose has some doughy white bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of doughy pale malts, some straw, cereal, dry lemon. Light bodied with fins carbonation. Simple doughy malt finish, lightly astringent, white bread, some lemon merengue.

imdownthepub (9953) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottled, 500ml present from Sandra, thank you. Gold with white head. This beer had quite a sharp grainy, slightly stewed note initially. There is an earthy hop note, tree bark with a slight fungal character. Not one I would return to.

Gravity dispense at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough BF - 12/10/12. Mid amber with a thin off-white head. Caramel malt, toffee and a little nuttiness on the nose. Tastes of toffee, dark fruit, some hops. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a fruity bitter finish. Adequate bitter.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
500ml bottle Mum and Dad brought me back from Cornwall. Bright orange with a slim white collar. Buttered orange, beeswax and pine aroma- pretty heavy on the butter, with an oily rub of hopcone. On the tongue faint mildew, apricot and piney hop with buttered white toast. Decent grassy finish, light bitterness and soap. Overly buttery but pleasant enough.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Darkish gold colour. Grassy aroma. Thought I picked up a salty seaweed tang but that’s probably just a case of suggestion. Develops into a sharp, clean golden ale with a pleasant tangy hop presence. Would make a decent Summer quaffer.
