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.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - MAY 12, 2012
Good bitter amber colour with a carpet of white head and plenty of sparkle in the glass. Maris Otter malt dominates the aroma spectrum with some useful mandarin juice and tangelo aromas. Slightly tropical flower scents too, hibiscus perhaps? Plenty of prickly mouthfeel and then just the most succulent citrus sweets. On-going carbonation and and slight grassy bitterness, as if you’ve picked a piece of grass and sucked some of the juice from the end. This is a good ambassador beer, not just in the style but also for the brewery. It hasn’t the body of a lot of British bitters, but it has character in spadefuls.

ThirstyBird (2315) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
From a bottle, pours a clear light amber color with a cream colored head. The smell is fruity, light caramel, toasted malt. The taste is fruit, touch of cough syrup, toasted malt ending drips and fruity. Light+ in body with slightly above carbonation level.

BeerNinjaUK (51) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours with thin, watery but persistent chalky head. Colour clear medium amber. Aroma especially malty with light treacle sweetness. Also malt heavy and slightly sweet palate. Very pleasant and reliable beer of its type, but would benefit from stone kind of edge or complexity to set it apart.

thmsboyd (166) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle BBE: 06.2016. Cellar temp. Pours a crystal clear amber body with medium, pillowy, fawn head. Low-medium intensity malty cornflake aroma, with tropical fruit and peppery notes. A medium, chewy sweetness is balanced by a light bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture, average carbonation and a short, bitter-orange finish. As tasty from the bottle as it is in cask, this is a real gold standard in English pale ales.

brewtalita (87) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 24, 2015
Dark golden, head retention minimal. Aroma of dark chicory and english hops. Palate thin, watery, carbonation medium. Taste malt forward, biscuity with slightest hint of roasted malt and fruity esters.Finish medium dry with english hops in very moderate amount. Drinkable and my cup of coffee but nothing special there really. Lacks body and should have been more complex.

Bottle. Golden pour with smalk white head. Very little aroma of malts and a bit of hops. Refreshing taste of malts with notes of toffee and a slight hopy finish. An enjoyable cheap beer.

Lecvered (23) - - JUL 27, 2015
Pours slightly hazy pale gold with short white head and gentle carbonation. Not much on the sniff. Light malt and light orange citrus. Much the same to taste with some balancing hop bitterness and thin-to-medium mouth feel. Dryish, bitter-sweet, floral finish. Decent session ale. 500ml. bottle from Sainsbury’s sampled at cellar temperature at home.

jamaty (1546) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Color ámbar. Dos dedos de espuma blanca que desaparece rápido. Aroma ligero a cítrico. Sabor delicioso y delicado, muy marcado a naranja y uva. Buen cuerpo, y un ligero toque final amargo redondean una muy buena cerveza.

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2015
Fra flaske pĺ rbhd-samling hos Sigmund, juni-15: lett uklar kobber med kort offwhite skum. Malt, blomster og citurs i aroma. Fruktig smak med grapefrukt og appelsinmarmelade. Lett og balansert bitterhet gjřr den sikkert til en god přseřl i solveggen ved en engelsk pub. Humlene er Fuggles, Styrian Golding og Willamette.
