Cornish Knocker – Skinners Brewery (KER)

Another Cornish, award winning brew, ‘Cornish Knocker’ is a golden ale from the innovative and much garlanded, Skinner’s Brewery. Steve Skinner only started brewing commercially in 1997 but has gone on to create some the county’s, if not the country’s best brews. With the weather filthy outside, I tasted my ‘Cornish Knocker’ in front of the fire at my parent’s house. probably slightly warmer than it would normally be drunk. I found that different flavours were unlocked as the beer warmed.

As with a lot of Golden Ales, I found hints of sweetness in this ale, honeycomb and toffee with some citrus undertones.  Very satisfying, it warms the cockles of your heart. I look forward to more from Mr Skinner.
