A light, golden, hoppy session bitter, the permanent stable-mate on the Star bar to Crowlas Bitter. The ninth brew from the pub’s brewery, hence the name. Fuggles and Pilgrim go into the boil with pale ale malt, with Perle and Amarillo hop added later.

The Star Inn, Crowlas. Cask. Clear pale gold beer with a small white head. Softish palate with nice fine carbonation. Good floral start with light tangy orange and lemon and a little marmalade. Light finish with a peel bitter aftertaste. Well joined up and very drinkable.

[email protected] Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is earthy, grassy, grainy and mildly wooden. Flavour is rather similar. Nicely balanced, but not a very special golden ale.

Cask at Great British Beer Festival. Yellow gold with large bubbled white head. Lemon and tangerine nose. In the mouth, surprisingly tasteless - a little zesty and malty, but the nose promised more. Finish is bitter and drinkable.

Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’11. Gold with white head. Light golden ale with a green lemony fruity hop presence, quite flowery, I like Fin’s millpond reminiscense. Finishes dry and hoppy, very pleasant.

Cask, gravity at Banbury Beer Festival 05.05.11 Pours light golden good clarity with a few clean white bubbles that swiftly departed. Really good condition. The aroma smells like a millpond, I don’t mean that in a negative sense its just that was exactly what the first whiff of that evoked memories of. This does exactly what it sets out to do, its a very tasty lightly hoppy session beer, with just the very slightest hop burn detected. Crikey a Cornish beer that I really liked, now that is a turn up! A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7
