A cool, dark creamy beer from St. Austell and a favourite with many visitors to Cornwall. Cornish Cream is an exceptionally smooth beer in which the initial sweetness is balanced by rich, roasted flavours of espresso or dark chocolate.

This is a beer that needs a good landlord to look after it. i can see where a previous comment gave it a lukewarm review, but please note the worst iíve had of these has been in Tintagel. Try the Swan in Wadebridge if you want a great pint, or the Oystercatcher in Polzeath if you want to go to Cornish Cream heaven! Donít slug this back down, you wonít get much taste. Sip and savour however and it is a revelation!

ALLOVATE (2827) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2006
Draught, nitro-kegged @ the White Horse (?), Tintagel, Cornwall.
Deep, brownish-black donned with a typically charged bed of tan cream that left rings down the glass. No aroma aside from clean liquor. Chilled beyond belief so the flavours took a while to come out. Itís smooth, creamy and light on the palate filling out a little as it warms. Biscuity malts mainly, sweetish with a mocha-latte back end and a slight hint of malt bitterness on the swallow. Not much length, but its also smooth down the gullet. No surprises there. Pretty bland but a decent quaffer in the heat of day. As Spiesy said I was sure this was just a gimmicked new age Mild. Average!!!

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2003
Cask Conditioned, at the St. Austell Brewery, St. Austell, Cornwall.
Dark with regular, predictable creamy head. Roasted malt aroma, slight aniseed finish. This is a lovely beer to be sure, but as itís ABV and appearance would suggest itís just a mild, pumped with nitrogen (70/30 mix of N2/CO2) and re-branded. Its still a very nice mild although for the purist, I think it would be nice to see the real thing out in action as well. Economics wins this time.

I can't believe I am the first to rate this fine brew. A reason in itself to return to Cornwall. It's quite rare that commercial descriptions (see top of page) are accurate, but in this case I can agree 100% - dark and smooth, my only problem is it goes down too easily to really savour it.....Same again please landlord!
