Cask. Subtle aroma of apricot peach and sweet malts. Pours golden with thin bubbly top. Taste is similarly fruit with peach blending towards strawberry and the aeration keeps these flavours above the caramelized hops but at the end the palate registers an abrupt if biscuity bitterness. So a bit like apricot ham on toast liquefied and that makes the 5.2abv all the more cider like for a Cornish Christmas beer.

beeebon (354) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Pours golden amber with initial but not lingering white head. Aroma is peach and orange marmalade, slightly grassy an toffee malt. Taste is both medium sweet and bitter quite nicely balanced, nicer thn the normal Tribute for sure. I would like to try this on cask!
