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.

beer-yum (586) - Wellington, - APR 24, 2013
Reasonable session beer. Slightly bitter balance (as advertised) but missing a bit of body and/or a little watery to my mind/taste. Still, a nice beer overall and I wouldn’t turn one down if offered again.

SlackerMads (1700) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Pours clear copper with a medium sized frothy off white head. Nuts, dry flowers, wood, dark bread, dark berries. Light/medium body, light/medium sweet and bitter. Texture is a bit thin and the finish is watery. Ok, but not a lot to it.

MarkoNm (747) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours a clear, darker golden color, topped with a small white head. A very mild malty aroma, slightly fruity and some caramel notes. The taste starts with some fruity notes, followed by a fairly moderate bitterness. A nice surprise actually, very drinkable and enjoyable.

guzgorog (336) - FRANCE - OCT 29, 2014
Blonde pale légèrement cuivrée, fine mousse blanche sans tenue. Nez de caramel, de miel, légèrement sur le houblon herbeux. Bouche assez fade, amertume présente mais moyenne, houblon présent mais peu de saveurs. Mouais bof ...

kaziopiwosz (360) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bitter taste with a delicate lemon nute. Full palate. Long and bitter finish. Snowy white head, thick, stays long on top. Golden colour.

Dervock (503) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle - pours gold with a thin white head. Light caramel malt with a hint of honey. taste is a bit bland, slightly sweet across the palate which is on the thin side.

JorgeLee (1265) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle, brought to the pre-baby party by Mr Goodall. I have to admit having very low expectations here. I’ve generally struggled to enjoy any St Austell beers in the past, and my sampling of the cask version appears to have discovered a poorly conditioned bland buttery mess. So I wasn’t super excited about this! But it was actually ok. Some crisp biscuity malt, a fresh spicy hop flavour, restrained bitterness in good balance. Very quaffable. Gosh. Who’d have thought.

christhoel (191) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
a average beer in my opinion i think i expected better things from this maybe i’m spoiled drinking black sheep regular . Caramel malts, fruity hops, grains and hints of honey to the nose.lightly bitter, light sweetness, average carbonation,

McTapps (4555) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Pours out of the bottle (bought at Asda in Eastbourne) in a deep, ligth hazy amber - light brown colour with steady airy head and flat body. Aroma of malt and cookies. Taste of biscuits, cookies, light bread, hay, mild hops and flowers. Finish of cookies. Mild and very un-bitter to drink, not a bad one.

MichaelAwesome (4555) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from ASDA in Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Some grassy nose with a bit of caramale and vanilla. Easy going with some raisin in the taste. Bit unpleasing bitter finish. Quality beer which just did not hit my taste.

Refreshing on a summer evening. Pale golden in colour. Not particularly adventurous in its flavour.
