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.

Jimthechap (1685) - 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.

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 (501) - 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 (1224) - 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.

McTapps (4314) - 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 (4314) - 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.

czar (4503) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. cloudy pale golden pour with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. tea leaves, aromatic tea, grainy and lean pale maltiness, spicy-herbal grassiness, slightly perfumey, English bitters - usual suspects, also spices. moderate to low carbonation, light body - not quite watery, dry grassy-herbal tea finish. nicely crafted bitter.

dogbomb (948) - ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle. Bright gold with a decent white head. Lemons and light grapes and maybe a touch of red berry in the nose - almost ribena-like. It’s a little "ribena" in taste as well - blackcurrant with a lemon zing Nicely carbonated making it easy to drink. A quaffer, with plenty of fruity flavour!

Theydon_Bois (9109) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle at Noels House whilst watching the cheating fucking Kiwis scrape a 20-15 win over England B, 07/06/14. Clear rich golden with a well appointed light beige covering. Nose is biscuit malt, light spice, woody rinse, nutmeg, dark fruits. Taste comprises earthy tones, light mineralisms, spice, hint of orange, dark fruit, figgy jam, pineapple jus. Medium bodied, soft carbonics, light bitter splatterings at the curtain call. Decent enough bottled bitter - again a lot better than the many mediocre micro cask offerings that show their faces in the provinces!
