Ko•rev (cor-eff) n. traditional Cornish word meaning beer. It’s taken us nearly 160 years to create the perfect lager, and we wanted to make sure it was uniquely Cornish. Crafted at our brewery in St Austell, we’ve used the finest lager malt from barley grown right here in Cornwall. Korev has a wonderful pale colour and a clean, crisp taste, bottled in amber glass to protect the freshness. We think you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.

Served in a pint glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is hey, grass, floral. Taste is grassy, refreshing, sour-bitter with a subtle slightly bitter aftertaste. Thin body with medium carbonation. Very nice lager indeed!

Keg, half pint, shared with Finn at The Ship in Plymouth. Clear warm golden body, diminishing white head, clingy lacing. Modest smell of grass and grain. Pale malty flavours added by hints of lime and lemon. Distant bitter endnotes. Clean in the mouth. Okay lager, quite refreshing (22.09.2016).

Pours clear, golden. A finger of white head dissipated by the time I’m typing this. Smells like a lager---grassy, mostly. Medium body. Not all that much flavor. Finish is limp---neither crisp nor lingering. Not much here.

BlackHaddock (6394) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2016
500ml bottle into a ’Cobra’ pint glass at home on 2nd July 2016. Golden pour, bright and clean: plenty of carbonation bubbles rising through the clear body to the snow white head. Slight corn and malty nose, the flavour more balanced with a semi-bitter hop presence alongside the mini-sweetness from the malt content. Decent.

First enjoyed in on tap at"The Head of steam"hostelry in leeds,enjoyed a little too much perhaps as several pints later i lost my metrocard ,and wasn’t exactly in peak condition the following day, rare for me to drink this much but it was very tasty. Happy to find bottles in Booths supermarket. Nose is fresh with slight skunky notes,classic lager malt flavours (hay,corn )balanced perfectly by the saaz and perle hops . Really a lovely lager, true to the style without being bland ,top draw.

Sample at the brewery, st. Austell. Quite average bittersweet lager beer, medium bittersweet finish. Not bad though.

This is a good lager, well above average. Unlike macro lagers it has a beginning, middle and end. Lemony up front, unusually pale. Drier than most, nice lack of sweetcorn. Sharp, bitter finish.
