COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Clear gold with a slight white head and moderate carbonation. A dryish lager with some crisp malts, a touch of grassy hop and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

I one of these recently after moving into my new place and very welcome it was too after shifting loads of heavy things! Very crisp and refreshing with a very clean taste, slightly floral hops come through the lagery taste. Pretty decent as far as lager goes and it certainly has its time and place.

Draught. Looks like lager, tastes like lager. To be fair, it’s not too bad for what it is. A nice little bit of bitter citrus on the finish.

Sat outside The Shipwrights, Padstow, Cornwall. Nice sunny day on holiday. Aroma is malty, grass, hints of lemon. Flavour is your usual lager type stuff, mild malts. Not bad for a lager really.

Keg at a Brown’s Restaurant in Reading. Light amber colour with white head. An ok lager, with some citrus and a long bitter finish.

Keg at the Scarborough Arms, Leeds. Now a Nicholson’s place, not sure how long that has been. This must be their standard lager, as that’s all it is, a bog-standard lager. Better than Tennent’s. Just.

Very light golden appearance, and to me there was a very strong hoppy aroma, with a slight hint of honey. It’s very light on the palate and again there are hints of honey, but this tastes very much like an IPA to me. That doesn’t make it bad, but at the same time it isn’t great, but if you’re looking for something light and drinkable for a night in, give it a look.

Bottle drank on hols in St Ives. Amost clear gold beer, little white head. Palate is dry and minerally crisp. Light clean lagerish malt. Light hops, whisper of citrus. Mellow noble hop bitterness. Dry finish. Not bad.
