Currently drinking this ale after visiting Cornwall. Have to say I’m not too impressed. Find it has too much of a tangey taste to it and an inordinate amount of froth. MustangMarkF (253) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
500ml Bottle. ... of froth!! Ive always found the carbonation in Skinners beers to be a bit inconsistant - this is the first time Ive tried St Pirans - and no matter how slowly I poured I got a glass of bubbles! When eventually it settled down, it left a light brown body, cloudy with reddish tints and a thick lasting off white head. The aroma is very fruity, lemon, rhubarb (I hate rhubarb), plums (I hate plums), sweet and something that I can’t quite put my finger on but it isn’t good! Taste is lemony and washing up liquid... in fact i had to change glasses to make sure I had rinsed my glass properly. Theres also something floral going on there but as I dont munch flowers often I can’t be more specific. The long last carbonation is harsh on the palate and the lemon bitterness is extremely long lasting. I usually like Skinners beers a lot - this one I’m not going to tough again - EVER!! oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Orangeish golden colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruity, some mild sweet malts, grains and some slight acidic berries (acidic not in a bad way). Flavour is bready, sweet malty, some slight floral and sweetish fruity/berryish notes with mild bitterness at the same time. Nice fruity/floral/berryish bitterness in the finish. madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2012

Hazy gold beer. Light nose of sweet malt and orange. Semi crisp palate. Moderate carbonation. Lagerish malt but a really nice light orange and citrus from the hops. Easy drinking refreshing beer.
Bottled at St. Georges Hotel, Perranporth. Pours deep golden with a small creamy white head. Aroma of fruity hops. Taste is light bitter hops, very good thirst quencher. Allthough not as crisp hops as some other beers from this brewery, it still stands out in the british crowd of beer.

Floral hop aroma. Small white head. Amber coloured floral and hoppy with a little dryness and roast malt in a crisp and bitter finish. cgarvieuk (26360) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2009
Cask at Bow bar Edinburgh ... amber ... white bubbly head ... bright hop and washing up liquid ... dull tones .. soft fruit... no real depth but innofensive. DruncanVeasey (8401) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Hazy gold slopping headlessly from the bottle. A few bilious tufts of froth. Nose freshly polished table, rhubarb, honey, Pledge, pine and polish. A pleasant departure from all the grapefruit-sodden beers I seem to have been drinking of late. Evergreen, soap and stewed Darjeeling. That’s your lot. Skinner’s beers can really hit the mark closer to source (or in the rural backwaters of Warwickshire, for that matter) but the complete lack of conditioning and off notes here render a decently hopped ale virtually undrinkable. Will try again...

Just my kind of hops on the nose. Right there, in your face accompanied by hints of digestive biscuits. Loads of honey and citrus fruits with a finish of something a little more tropical. Oily and smooth with a good dryness to finish you off. fonefan (52342) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2008
Clear light to medium yellow color with a small, virtually none appearnce, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toffee, butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. (220808)
