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.

Keg from Brown’s Cafe Bar, Sheffield - Clear yellow, decent white top. Crisp and sweet at the same time. A quaffable lager really, but not one I’d choose if I was out on anything but a free drinks bash.

MrBlueSky93 (278) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Pours pale yellow, almost golden, highly carbonated, single finger white head. Aroma of Lager, Grass, touch of Honey. Much the same on the taste, not very sweet though. Bland.

AshtonMcCobb (3415) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head and gentle bubbles. Nose - lightly honeyed malt with a hint of something citrus. Taste - more honeyed cereal. Citrus kicking in again with a metallic note overhanging on the finish. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamier texture than expected for a lager and a fairly balanced finish. Overall - decent lager, I’d say, despite it not being as lean in texture as the style usually demands.

Quack-Duck (8341) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
bottle, in a café on Exeter’s Cathedral Green. Golden yellow with a large white head. Lager -like start, dry and hoppy with a good malty base. Surprisingly good for an English lager.

Keg @The Dolphin, Penzance. 09-08-2014.
In short. standard lager.
A standard lager, soft carbonated, nothing remarkable but this is the first lager produced by St. Austell. We could see how the placed a few large lagering tanks outside St. Austell Brewery.

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.
