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 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.

snowdog140 (22) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
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.

StueyD (1066) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
A pale yellow-orange beer with a weak white head. A slightly sweet caramel aroma. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. A well balanced flavour, a tad sweet with malt and caramel but then a bitter, zesty hop flavour comes through. Tasted at the Harbour Inn, Lyme Regis, Dorset. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at the Birmingham Beer Bash 2013. Poured a clear medium straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is fresh yeasty malt. The flavour is medium bitter with some yeast and malt on the palate and some soft bitterness in the finish.

Fantastic start to the weekend. One of the finest lagers on the market, smooth, morish and uncomparable

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Whole Foods Kensington. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold, highly effervescent, with a large, pure white, tight frothy head. Lots of pale cereal in the nose, dry dough, straw. Faint sweetness to the flavor, further cereal, pale biscuity malts, straw, slight bitterness. Light bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Pretty clean to finish, slightly more biscuit malt sugars, further dry dough, simple cereal, straw. Very mellow character overall but what’s there is pretty pleasant.
