COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Trelawny Ale invokes the best Cornish traditions, heritage and innovation. Locally grown barley is gently roasted to give this beer a classic burnished copper colour and a robust full body which belies its modest strength. A unique blend of traditional English Golding, and specially imported Galaxy hops from distant South Australia harmonise to give this beer a distinctive character of the old, and the new world. Peach and apricot notes dominate the aroma, with hints of butterscotch and toffee apple. The taste is full, with toasted biscuit and jam being balanced by the mellow, yet assertive bitterness of tangy hops.

[10/5/13] Cask at some shitty pub in Brixton, London. Aroma of butter and some malt. Sweetish and buttery flavor with some malt, light graininess, a hint of fruitiness and a slightly bitter finish. Quite light-bodied. Lots of diacetyl.

JorgeLee (1224) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Cask in a pub in Marylebone with John and Ed. A very bog standard English bitter. I’d had some rather nice pints earlier in the evening so this may be harsh, but it was that kind of mid brown vaguely malty vaguely hoppy liquid that used to be served way too warm. I never used to like Trelwany’s Pride either, maybe this brewery doesn’t agree with my palate. Nothing really wrong, drinkable but dull.

jjsint (831) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
Mid to light brown. Clear with not too much head. Aroma is of candied yams and citrus peel. A heady malt scent also pervades. Bittersweet taste with an extra bitter finish. Hoppy aftertaste. A lovely experience.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
Cask at the Cleveland Arms - Bayswater, London. Pours clear yellow-gold with a lingering, foamy white head. Nose has mellow tangy citrus and a bit of pale dough malts. Light sweet flavor, simple dough, faint astingent ataw. Light bodied with soft to fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, light doughy pale malts, light bitter hay. So so.

KeefOz (939) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2013
Tasted 19/4/2013 draught "The Victoria Inn", Roche, Cornwall. Poured a moderate golden amber with a slight red tint. Poured as a glass of bubbles that settled to a 5mm off-white head. Laced well. Aroma ever so slight malt. Light tasting with a mild bitterness. Light body with a bit of a watery mouthfeel. Smooth, soft, nice, light finish.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
Rose Tavern. Pale copper with small white head. Hay, malt and sweet fruit. Sweetness from the caramel malts masks the bitterness from the hops, but some tannin flavour is apparent. Soft medium body.
