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.

StuartC (34) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle at Fyne Wines, Argyll. Pale gold in colour with an early clearing head. Cookie-dough and chocolate chip aromas with rich malt cereal tones. Clean and smooth texture, light fizz, almost void of any hop character - only very subtle lemon, coriander seed adding lightness to the toasty wholegrain palate; and touches of bittering hops on the finish. A deliciously easy drinking session ale, not overwhelmed by eccentric hops and so allowing the malts to carry the tone.

Lovely golden colour with sweet malty orangey aroma. Taste to follow, overall sweet and fruity with a mild bitter balance. Very tasty

Dejlig smag, med et strejf af citron. Flot farve, men mangler lidt dybde i smagen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GBZ59 (1181) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JAN 3, 2014
Botella de 500ml. Vaso Guinness de Pinta. Color latón y apariencia cristalina. Corona blanca con bastante buena retención. Aromas de maltas pálidas, sutil tostado, naranja y cítricos. Sabor de leve tostado, trazos de fruta tropical y amargor floral al primer sorbo. Cuerpo ligero/medio y carbonatación moderada/suave. Textura algo aguada. En el intermedio, notas de pulpa de naranja, piel cítrica, pomelo y frambuesa. Final seco y dulce. Retrogusto afrutado. Trago fácil y aconsejable en una buena sesión cervecera. 500ml bottle. Guiness Pint glass. Brass color, clear appearance. White crown shows fairly good retention. Pale malt, subtle toasted, orange & citric aromas. Slight toasted flavor, hints of tropical fruit & floral bitterness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Notes of orange pulp, citric zest, grapefruit & raspberry in the middle. Sweet dry finish. Fruity aftertaste. Easy drinkable & suggested for a nice beer session.

beeebon (222) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
From bottle this pours a pale golden amber with head which instantly fizzles away. There isn’t much in the way of aroma to be honest, slightl malt citrus. Taste is mild, slightly citrusy and malty with enough hop bitterness to keep me interested leading to a refreshingly dry finish. Above average and certainly drinkable!

SarkyNorthener (2362) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Tesco. Amber beer with medium head and a touch of lacing. Aroma of hops and orange citrus. Taste is oranges, citrus hops, caramel and some malts to balance it all out. Nice bottle.

kerenmk (2549) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at Tempo. Clear golden. A little fruity hoppiness and limestone in the nose, stale bitter taste - like English bottled beer. Light body, slightly malty and dry finish.

Medium-light sweetness, fruity, bread, dry finish. resin, caramel, Palate: Medium body. High carbonation. Overall: The high bitterness is a bit of a shock, but one does get used to it.
