COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
St. Austell’s most sought after ale is available as a 500ml bottled beer. It’s perfectly balanced flavour retains much of the cask versions unique hoppy palate and citrusy nose. An ale to savour and a real Cornish ambassador. Rapidly becoming “the” Cornish Premium Ale, this great beer can now be enjoyed outside of the county of Cornwall. Many supermarkets take Tribute, enabling those who enjoy drinking at home to enjoy the true taste of Cornwall.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2011
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Clear light orange-amber with an average frothy-creamy beige lasting head (3+). Dry, light aroma, straw, vague green apple, a bit leafy with just a hint of lemon zest - no alcohol on the nose to speak of. Taste is .... thin, an odd but appealing light caramel/grain sweetness juxtaposed against extremely soft non-acidic tangerine and floral bitterness - quite pleasant, actually. Soft, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, mild carbonation, and a fairly quick balanced sweet grain mildly bitter finish and linger - has a somewhat sweet, but not annoying aftertaste. Easy to drink. (without realizing it, I rated the cask version exactly one week ago - same score!!)

This hoppy beer lived up to expectations, nice citrus taste to it. Wonderful aroma I’d love to have it on cask.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Can on the Penzance London train. Pours golden amber with a slight crearmy white head. Aroma is light floral and citrus over mild malt. Flavor is malty and fruity. Malt seems slightly dominant, but it’s certainly bitter enough to satisfy. Bitter seems to build with time.

Bottle courtesy of a friend (not on RB) at home. Aroma is very nice, butterscotch, caramel - the taste doesn’t deliver the same. Too bad.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2011
[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Pours a lightish brown or pale amber. Some citrus on the aroma, with a nice biscuity malt accompaniment. Fruity malt on the palate, touch of orange, with a mild hop component. Brilliant session beer, could drink these all night without any worries [29052009]
