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.

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.

Hippoman (524) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2015
500ml Bottle from Tesco, Gilesgate, Durham. Pours piss yellow with lively carbonation but no head retention at all. The nose is sweet and corny and as such indistinguishable from 1.000 other lagers. The taste is a little more complex than most though with a fair bit of bitterness up front that gives way to a sweeter, slightly buttery finish. Lively on palate. Not a bad lager but not a beer I would have again through choice.

SilkTork (5467) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
500ml dark bottle, filtered. Standard global dry lager. Some herbal hops in finish. Bland and boring but inoffensive. Oddly Eats European name for a "Cornish lager" - Seems the marketing team are trying to tick too many boxes here resulting in something of a mess. It’s OK, but the same sort of thing is available for less, so I see no particular reason to buy this again.

SarkyNorthener (3489) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle from tesco, Walsall. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of sweetcorn and pale malts. Taste is pale malts, stale herbs and a bit of butter. Not good.

rauchbier (3709) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle, from Tesco. Gold, thin but lasting white head, gentle condition. Pleasantly fruity in the nose with a background of herbal hoppiness, becoming a little dry and smoky with time. Nicely balanced in the mouth with a delicate honeyed Bohemian hop note and some sweet malt to underpin it, lingering honey and herbal hop in the finish, pleasantly Bohemian.
