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.

500ml bottle. Light amber pour with near white head that dissipates quickly. Big grainy nose with a light hint of something that wants to be hops....I think. Mmore defined malt on the palate with a bit of citrus underneath. Quite light bodied.

This was a bit of a revelation. Fruity, bubblegum, raspberry, great palate, just really very good and better than I remember it in cask.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle 500 ml from Globus - Marin (CH). Luminous amber with fleeting foam and very low crackling. Fruity aromas of malt, toffy, note of citrus. The taste is bittersweet, balanced, tropical fruits, spicy hops, floral note and biscuit. Bitterness a bit earthy of almond and grass accompanies the final sweetness.

I have enjoyed this in its ubiquitous cask form across the west country and while it isn’t quite the same bottled this is a good bitter. Classic copper colour with a slightly creamy head. Citrussy but mainly malty aromas and flavours. Fairly bitter, almost sour on the aftertaste and quite strongly carbonated.

Pours a gold colour and has light fruity aroma and has a slightly fruity taste better on cask.

prawlie (1245) - 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.
