SMASH#1 4.3% abv

A truly educational experience for any brewer, SMASHing helps you to truly understand what one hop and one malt bring to the beer.

Created by Matt Knowles, brewing full-time with St Austell since 2014, SMASH#1 uses Golden Promise malt from Simpsons, imparting a slightly sweet, clean well rounded flavour to the beer. This heritage barley has been used as a base in many famous cask beers.

Matt is a fan of UK hop varieties and for SMASH#1 he has chosen Target for both its clean bittering and early aromatic qualities. With a big following amongst UK brewers, Target is a lovely hop with orange, pine and cedar aromas.

Matt’s previous brews include Fall Back and Irons Session IPA, which was a huge hit with Roger Protz.

St Austell cask ales, in line with the vast majority of other cask ales produced in the UK, are clarified by the addition of isinglass finings to the beer in the cask. 
As isinglass finings are derived from fish collagen, cask ales are not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.
