Heat oil in deep-fryer to 160 C.
Whisk together the flour, polenta, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix in ale until no dry lumps remain.
Dip the cod into the batter, allow some of the excess to run off, then carefully place into the deep-fryer. Cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside, and the fish is easily flaked, about 8 minutes. Cook the fish in several batches to avoid over loading the deep-fryer.
