Cask, Occasional;
Skinner’s Brewery is launching a new, special edition ale for the summer, named after a popular Cornish surfing break, featuring hops that have never before been used in the UK. Lushingtons will be available during May, June, July and August in pubs throughout Cornwall and Devon, as well as nationally through wholesalers and pub companies. It is a zingy, straw coloured, fruity pale ale with an ABV of 4.2% using only Cornish barley alongside three unusual hops sourced from the USA — including Belma, which is a new hop being used for the first time in the UK.

Ewww, floor cleaner citrus aroma. Pale bitter, but lovely spongy persistent head. Nice malty body, quite grainy, twiggy bitterness. Decent bitter, but so inferior to the classic old Cornish Knocker. New hop variety? Burn all of them, they’re a mess.
Rerate: Doesn’t smell so weird, quite nice tea. Give it an extra point.

(Cask at Black Door, 20141021) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruitiness and hint of malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A decent hoppy golden ale.
