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.

larsga (6140) - 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.)
