COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular
Also sold as Betjeman Ale in the Betjeman Arms, St Pancras.
With the exhaustion of the mining industry Cornwall’s fishing fleet now keeps this bold tradition of commercial seafaring alive albeit bound by fishing quota red tape. Cornish Coaster pays tribute to all those down the centuries who have bravely plied their trade around Cornwall’s rugged coastline.

Lovely session ale with a great taste that goes down very well and has even been known to save kager drinkers from the dark side once or twice.

Leighton (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Cask at the Hansom Cab - London. Pours clear gold with a supertight eggshell cream head. Hints of dry lemon on the nose, some crispy hay and leaves. Light sweet flavor, simple bready sugars, a little hay. Light bodied with fine and very creamy carbonation. Fair condition. Mild bitterness to finish with some white bread, hay, faint crunchy leaves. Tasty, basic.

Vladivostok (215) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Likeable beer with a restrained citrus aroma and quite complex flavour profile for a golden ale with a slight hint of honey being perhaps the most prominent. Probably a nice accompaniment to a warm summer’s day but it was cold and raining when I tried it...
