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.

Also sold as "Sharp’s Anglers Tackle" at The Anglers, Walton-on-Thames. __ Copper colour. Aroma has some nice honey notes and a hint of hop. Flavour has a pleasant sweetness but remains quite fresh. Nice hop balance.

A bit like a golden ale, initial taste was quite sharp with some citrus following up, not bad

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2017 Cask at the Price Albert, celebrating a 6-2 victory over the Bank of Montreal. An orangey golden session beer, easy drinking with some slightly resin hop. Pleasant enough, although I find most Cornish beer a bit bland. Re-rate, same venue, BMO took a 6-0 beating this time! Review stands but 2.3 was probably a little bit harsh.

tombyars (1802) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2012
First tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear straw in colour with a thin white head. Dry hoppy notes in the brief aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a fruity flavour of gooseberry and lime. Metallic tang to the aftertaste with hard water salts and hop resins combine to give a very tart bitter aftertaste. Finish is dry with bitter floral notes. A poor session bitter.

Aniela (4215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2012
Cask at The Northcumberland Arms at Tottenhamn Court Road, London. Coppercloured with a offwhite head.Fruity, sweetish aroma. A bit bitter and spicy. Not a nice beer.

jackl (8597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Orange color, tiny white head. Somewhat floral nose, though quite forgettable. Taste is moderately sweet and easy. Light bitterness. Some fruit flavor. Soft carbonation, light body. Acceptable but forgettable.

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2011
Cask @ The Retreat. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweetish malty, fruity and caramel. Flavor as aroma with some hoppy bitterness. Finishes sweet malty and fruity.

rosenbergh (12021) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Cask at The White Hart Inn, Grays, England.
Hazy golden colour with tiny creamy off-white head. Mild floral hoppy aroma with some maltiness. Flavour is pretty much the same. English style hoppiness.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump King Lud Ryde. A golden beer with a white head. Seemed like it was on its last legs with fruit skin aromas. A safe English bitter it would seem but there’s definite tiredness and signs of oxidising. Having said all that I’m no fan of Sharps anyway so perhaps it is meant to be poor.
