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.

Cask at the Trafalgar Inn, Greenwich. Pours golden amber with a creamy white head. Surprisingly malty aroma. Flavor is bitter floral and fruit with underlying caramel. Drinks very well, finishing nicely bitter.

Cask (handpump I think) at GBBF, day 5 on 5 August 2006. Bright golden colour. A little hop in the aroma - more earthy than fragrant. A rather undistinguished session bitter. Not much depth. Drinkable but entirely forgettable.

Light in appearance (straw golden yellow) and fluffy head. Flavor is like the appearance, light a fluffy. Good but maybe a little watery and less than I’d like. It still had a level of crispness as well. Also a slightly toasted hop flavor.

(Cask at Oxford, London) Again a decent bitter. Looked like I expected it should. Also flavours and aroma didn’t provide any surprises, neither negative nor positive. If I really wanted to pinpoint something I would say this beer was a bit too sweet for my taste.

(cask @ The Coach and Horses , Kew). Good , malty brew. I thought the malt depth was deep and interesting.. slight syrupy notes...some dry spicy hop and apple’y esters tangz. . Pretty good.

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2010
Draught in The Royal Oak, Poynings - 28/8/10. Decent white head and golden coloured beer. Taste was a bit watery but some dry hops on the palate and toffee on early palate. Session beer and nothing special.

13th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer. No head. Sour dry palate. Tired fruit hop. A little sulfur on the nose. Tired and uninteresting.

Ungstrup (39109) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2010
Cask. A very golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrus, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt as well as lighter notes of butterscotch. Somewhat boring.

anders37 (27907) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2010
Cask @ Priory Arms, Stockwell, London SW8. Pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma fruity malty caramel flavor with some hoppy hints. Has a fruity malty caramel finish.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2009
Cask at The Maypole, Cambridge (20-Aug-09). Clear amber with a good-sized head. Hoppy, straw scent with some metal. Very good balance but with a slightly sweet end. A bin thin. Disappointing in the mouth with not much more than a grassy hop.
