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.

Gravity dispense at the Happy Man Spring BF, 14/03/14. Pale blonde with a moderate white head formed of bubbles. Nose is melon, floral notes, peach, soft bread dough, trace of hops. Taste comprises light citrus peel, peach, candyfloss, cantaloupe melon, light spice, pommegranate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, grassy linger in the close. Decent enough GB, has some hop presence and a good level of trop-rus fruit.
