COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Designed for red-headed pancake tossers (of course! What did you think the name was referencing…. for shame!).
Originally created to aid the celebration of Pancake Day, now a permanent fixture among the Skinner’s stable. Made with only the finest Cornish Honey.

DIBBLE (86) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Lightly sweet, ginger spiced aroma. Brief white head over clear golden beer. Mouthfeel is lively and full. Initially the ginger sweetness hits first with a light bitter malt base coming in after. Once into the groove the ginger effect is pleasantly subtle and the drink remains refreshing and light. Sweet malt finish.

Bottle at home from Spar, Par, Cornwall on 18th April 2015. Hazy amber with thin laceless pale yellow foam. Harmonious aroma of honey, malt and grassiness. Fruity in-mouth with berries, honey and grassy hoppiness. Cookie malt, honey and citric tang in finish. Fair amount of body and a lively, zingy mouthfeel.

AshtonMcCobb (3674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - deep amber with a slight haze and a decent head. Nose - lemon barley water, slight floral. Taste - more of the same, and a bit grainy. Palate - light to medium bodied with a thin-ish texture, though quite creamy and a fairly dry finish. Overall - drinkable but wouldn’t rush back.

beeebon (265) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Received a bottle as a gift recently. This is a golden beer with virtually no head/. Smell is hay, grass, malt and slight ginger. The taste surprised me in that there’s quite a bit to it considering it is such a weak alcohol beer. Mild sweet malt and surprisingly hoppy with a mild ginger burn. Finishes a little dry and crisp. Surprisingly decent bitter and one I may well buy in future!

ManVsBeer (5476) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Its orange cap is a suitable colour for the golden amber appearance and small ginger notes that give it a slight spiciness. It is by no means overbearing and quite pleasant, probably due to a weaker body. It has no head but a very sweet aroma.

Great golden red colour. Some head. Flavour is great, some high notes of honey, some warmth of ginger, and some refreshing hops and dry bitter ending.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2012
500ml Bottle. Aroma is of malt, ginger, a hint of honey and citrus. Appearance wise this is a honey coloured ale with the usual inconsistant SKinners head. Taste wise it is a real ale flavoured with ginger, rather than a alcoholic ginger beer - and that is a very good thing. It is a medium bodied beer with a malty start moving through some mild spices to ginger and a slightly bitter finish.

A cloudy golden amber colour, carbonation visible and has a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and syrupy with a hint of honey. Has a taste of honey and malt very refreshing.
