COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Ingredients: Cornish Gold Malt; Willamette hops.
Tribute is a popular favourite with locals and visitors alike to Cornwall, as well as being a much sought after guest ale throughout the rest of the UK.
Roger Protz: “Tribute is a magnificent example of a bronze coloured English bitter, with a rich aroma of biscuity malt and tart citrus fruit. Juicy malt, hop resins and tangy fruit coat the tongue, while the finish is long and lingering, with a fine balance between malt, hops and fruit, finally becoming dry and bitter”.

yespr (32344) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
From cask at Charlies. Pours clear yellow with a little white head. Fruity and slight spiced aroma. Flavour is hoppy fresh with a note of a somewhat herbal soapy tone. Mild bitterness towards the finish, remains rather fresh fruity but also with that unmistakenly herbal/spice note.

jerryballoono (32) - Urgup, TURKEY - DEC 9, 2007
Pint cask,Carbeile Inn, Torpoint, Cornwall Orange coloured bitter with large lasting white head, good malt balence with bitter aftertaste. Citrus aroma. This was probably the best kept pint of real ale I had during my month in England earlier this year - I make no apologies for the high score it deservedly got.
