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.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, - DEC 19, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 Coarse white head. Light amber body. Light sweetish malty hoppy floral aroma. Light, soft hoppy taste with straw and malt notes. A bit watery. No real aftertaste. Some cardboard, some driness, and sweetness. Some honey, too. Not bad, but not very exciting. (0.5pt cask at Fox & Anchor. Rerated by mistake at The Warwick Castle, London. Same result.)

AshtonMcCobb (5382) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2016
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - slight resin but mostly pale malt. Taste - light grassy, lemon pale malt. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - my score is probably slightly forgiving as it’s the first beer of the day.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
A dark, whiskey-honey colored beer with a firm, slightly brown layer of foam. It has a somewhat sweet aroma, but very much on the background. It taste a bit apple-sour, but furthermore a bit watery. A somewhat slightly bitter aftertaste, but doesn’t last long. Een donker, whiskey-honing kleurig bier met een stevige lichtbruine kraag. Een iets zoetig aroma, maar enorm op de achtergrond. De smaak is appelzuur, maar verder waterig. Een iets bittere nasmaak blijft niet lang hangen.
