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.

Cask. Classic deep golden ale with a thick offwhite head. Lemon, peach and summer berry on the nose. Light and fruity in the mouth. Some light berry, lemon, grapefruit, peach and pear. Some grape. There's a dank wood maltiness in the finish which spoils it somewhat.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Cask conditioned handpump Althorp Coaching Inn Great Brington 04/01/13. A brown beer with an off-white head. Gentle orangey hoppy flavours are very palateable. The nose is yeasty and dulkl and gives no suggestion of the decent hops which are to follow. A drinkable fairly weak bitter. Score 3.0
Subsequent rating scored 3.3. Average becomes 3.1

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
Cask at the Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. Poured a clear copper colour which looked really special when held up to the light. A thin white short-lasting head with some heavy lace. A very peachy aroma which was also present in the taste. The fruit and bitterness hits the back of your throat shortly afterwards. A really tasty, smooth and refreshing ale and perfect for a session. Those citrus notes set this beer apart from the crowd! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Cask gravity at The Bastille Day Beer Festival, Horse & Groom, Caulcott, Oxon, Friday 13th July 2012 Pours amber, reasonable clarity. Described as Peach and Apricot notes, I’m afraid that these particular desciptions have rather passed me by. Little bit dry, some fruitiness. Touch bland but otherwise ok. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8

Vladivostok (235) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Struggled to come up with any clear description of this one. Bitter but not a lot else I can say other than ’thin’. If you were to describe an absolutely typical British bitter ale, this would be it and a bit of a sales flop according to the St. Austell landlord I spoke to. I was never the greatest fan of Tinner’s but it seems that the locals regret its passing.
