This mid-coloured beer was first brewed in May 2010 and is well-hopped and distinctive, with citrus and fruit notes in the aroma, continuing into the flavour, resulting in a well-balanced, bittersweet finish.

JDW, Rochester. Pale amber. Musty best bitter. Drinkable, but unremarkable. Some grubby hops over a dry, indifferent malt, finishing with a lingering dusty hop bite.

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 Iím afraid.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Same solid sweet shortbread and cashew malt base as The Pirateís 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 itís there. Jazzles and enrobed peanuts. Toasted. Too saline and brassy. Long aftertaste. Better once itís gone. Rich Tea and cashew. Sufferable.

Bottle. Bronze and slightly hoppy with some citrus in the background. Nice label but a pretty average beer.

Bottle from a Cornish Morrisons. Golden with a white head. Not very much going on with this. Very bland. Some bitter citrus notes but little else.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
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 doesnít aid the tartness, which lingers on into the finish.
