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”.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 10, 2013
This beer has a great reputation but for me it remains a little bland. Great bronze brown colour. The flavour is malted milk biscuits and a little hint of lemon.

Niall73 (1717) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Cask at Taylor's streatham. Pours a rich gold with a thin white head. Malty sweet aroma with a touch of honey and caramel. Honey and caramel in the flavour with some lemon too and a mildly bitter finish. It's fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 24, 2013
24/05/2013 Birrifugio Trastevere (handpump). Ambrata, viva e limpidissima, schiuma bianca sottile e poco persistente. Al naso sentori di mela matura, malto (biscottato), luppolo in sordina, leggero floreale: spenta e deludente. In bocca ha un attacco di malto e un finale assolutamente anonimo in cui il luppolo stenta a venir fuori. Watery, inconsistente, con carbonazione eccessiva per essere spillata a pompa. Assolutamente deludente, non all’altezza della media delle bitter inglesi.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Golden brown, thick white head; fresh malty aroma; creamy; smooth caramel malt taste, a little sweet; quite thick for the abv; spoilt by a slight hint of vinegar which suggested this example was on the turn; will try again (there will no doubt be plenty of opportunity in SW England) but on this evidence well short of a 3.0 beer.

Nice beer, a tiny bit cloying for my liking but still good to have in my fist on the right occasion.

Not a fan I’m afraid. Very sweet and syropy and not much else in the flavour. Would love some citrus, pine even floral tastes but they’re not there.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2013
Tasted 19/4/2013 draught "The Victoria Inn", Roche, Cornwall. Poured a moderate pale golden amber colour. Poured as a glass of bubbles that settled to a 5mm off-white head. Laced well. Aroma moderately strong citrus (orange) and maybe a bit of malt. Tasted ever so slight sweet citrus (orange, grapefruit) with no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth, soft, light ale with a short moderately sweet finish.
