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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, - MAR 2, 2011
Cask (handpump I think) at GBBF, day 5 on 5 August 2006. Bright golden colour. A little hop in the aroma - more earthy than fragrant. A rather undistinguished session bitter. Not much depth. Drinkable but entirely forgettable.

Cask at Balham Bowls Club. Two tone golden amber, clear, small white head. Aroma is watery tangerine. Body is medium to light, smooth, high carbonation for a cask ale. Taste is light citrus, fairly malty. Not bad.
