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”.

I’ve had it in bottle before but it hasn’t been as good as this cask at the Pen and Wig. There’s a nice floral and malty aroma to the beer, smells like a fresh pint of bitter, nothing particularly special but very fresh and pleasant. The taste is light, with a maltiness and crystal malt sweetness that grows up slowly and then hits dry. In the meantime, all these floral hops dance in your mouth, with some subtle fruit present. Very much recommended as a session beer.

My Bottom Line:
This floral and honeyed Bitter pleases from top to bottom, leading to balancing hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sticks to the misty blond.
-The honeyed flavors are quite authentic.
-The cask feel is perfectly smooth, as is often the case in good pubs in these parts.
-The finish is leafy and slightly sweet.
-Drinkability is very high.

On cask at The Mermaid Inn, Rye.

Prøvet som cask. Klar mellem gul / orange farve, underligt med den orange farve. Skummet er jo nemt at komme sig over, da der jo bliver skænket til den øverste kant og mere til når det er cask. Aroma er lys maltet, hø, moderat humlet, blomster, græs, og nogle karameller anes også. Smagen er moderat sød og bitter med en. En meget tør fornemmelse kommer efter hver slurk, og man skal liiige ha’ en mere. Helt klart en af de bedste cask ale jeg smagte på min pubcrawl i England.
