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.

Amber and bright w a thin head. Earthy and with a slightly honeyish floral, crystal malt....nice ale, unusual use of galaxy but a flavoursome, well-rounded bitter.

BlackHaddock (5186) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint on 23rd Nov 13 in The Kings Arms, Oxford during a heavy pub-crawl. Light rusty colour with a full white blanket as a cover. Fruit and caramel biscuit aroma with floral notes. The taste was also fruity and slightly maltier than hoppy, with semi-sweet caramel tones easing through the beer throughout. Nothing spectacular here, just a well make and easy to drink UK session Bitter: ideal when on a mission like I was on the day I had it.

The Ship Inn, Mousehole. Cask. Clear amber gold beer with a small off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, moderate carbonation. Light malt, touch of cream. Light fresh orange with good tangy peel. Whisper of lemon. Light finish. Not bad at all, well balanced.

[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.

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.

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.
