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.

prawlie (1206) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2011
500 mL bottle from Tesco poured into a pint glass at home. A nice head on top of a clear amber beer. The aroma is pleasant, plum, and citrusy, very good. Hoppy, bitter with sour fruit and raisin, sweet and sour, with biscuity malt. I was tempted to give this a luke-warm review as I wasn’t that impressed the first time I tried it, but I like it more and more each time I drink it. A fine English/Cornish bitter.

wheresthepath (1651) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011
[Bottle, part of a work secret Santa gift - cheers whoever it was!] Clear amber gold with a small white head and a slight fizz. Digestive biscuit & citrus up front, caramel & vanilla come through with a little leafy hop bitterness (although it’s mainly on the sweet side). Short finish with just a hint of metals. Better than average for a mass-market bottled bitter.

HogTownHarry (6135) - 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!!)

Old Rating. Bottle. Reddish coloured. A sweet malty bitter with a medium bitter finish. Average.
