2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Oh dear, this is more like a golden ale in appearance than a bitter. Aroma is nutty malt but rather stale. There is a slight Apple flavour overpowered by a nutty taste, which is none too pleasant. No real finish either, weak and slightly insipid. All the typical freshness and character of Cornish beer is missing here, no good I’m afraid.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Same solid sweet shortbread and cashew malt base as The Pirate’s lingering well after the swallow. A tang of ozone, metallic and seashore-like on the nose. Deep gold with a slender white cap throwing lace tendrils. Drinks with unsubtle cheap chocolate now I know it’s there. Jazzles and enrobed peanuts. Toasted. Too saline and brassy. Long aftertaste. Better once it’s gone. Rich Tea and cashew. Sufferable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A mid amber gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A strange hoppy aroma, somewhat appley, and a touch grassy, then a light malty aroma comes through. Dry and thin mouthfeel. The taste starts off ok, with a prickly hop flavour, but this soon transforms into a tart apple taste. There is a suggestion of malt towards the end, but it doesn’t aid the tartness, which lingers on into the finish.
