A golden night .

We minded our friends' dogs the other week and as a thank you Steve gave me some beer. Steve and I have similar tastes in real ale and always enjoy different ales from all around the country. If we see a beer that we have not heard of before, then we try it.

Steve and Trisha went down to Cornwall to visit some friends and rather than bring back something touristy, brought back some local beer. The Wooden Hand Brewery is located between St. Austell and Truro in Cornwall. I had the Cornish Buccaneer a golden coloured ale brewed at 4.3% ABV. This beer is gorgeous and quite similar to the Exmoor Gold from Wiveliscombe in Somerset. I am a fan of golden ales and this Cornish Buccaneer is a good one. It is a well crafted pint with a gorgeous taste that I would put into my top league of real ales. It just shows that these small regional brewers can make beer of the same high quality as the big boys like Greene King and Marston's.
Sounds tasty... will have to check it out next time I'm at the local beer shop ( << just up the road from me, lucky dragon!)
