Ko•rev (cor-eff) n. traditional Cornish word meaning beer. It’s taken us nearly 160 years to create the perfect lager, and we wanted to make sure it was uniquely Cornish. Crafted at our brewery in St Austell, we’ve used the finest lager malt from barley grown right here in Cornwall. Korev has a wonderful pale colour and a clean, crisp taste, bottled in amber glass to protect the freshness. We think you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.

Local supermarkets are stocking better and better beers alongside the dross, but it's still difficult to pick up a decent lager in my local Co-op. As such, Korev--while not being the equal of my favourite Brtiish lagers, such as Adnams Dry-hopped lager--is my favourite lager from my local shop, just ahead of the only other tolerable ones, Sharp's Cornish Pilsener and Boston Lager (though the latter tastes more like an IPA to me). Korev doesn't match my favourite lagers from Germany, however, such as Jever and certain Bavarian helles. Lager often has a samy flavour, but Korev has a characteristic St Austell's taste, in my opinion--they're my local brewery and owners of my local pubs. So you have the usual lager colour and crisp, refreshing taste, but with some malty and hoppy edges that identify it with the St Austell's family of recipes. It's a welcome drink when you are hot from work or the sun. Very much in its favour is the lack of nasty chemical or metallic undertones to the aftertaste.

Keg at Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green. Used to drink this all the time at annual golf weekends in Devon (it was that or Doombar) but not had it for a few years. Slight spicey/malty aroma. Light gold. Any head soon disappears entirely. Light bitter with underlying sweetness. Malts come through and to the fore. Light. Thin. Fizzy carbonation but not overly so. Abrupt finish. Pretty tasteless lager. Better than tasting like mass produced saccharine piss, I suppose.

Draught at Amaya. Pours clear golden, no head. Malty aroma with some hops. Sweet malty taste with a euro lager bitterness.

Pint at The Swan, Chiswick. Aromas are malts. Clear golden body with a white head. Taste is crisp malts with a round citrus finish. OK but nothing special.

A good, full tasting lager. Has a breezy freshness the macros lack. Good job. 7/10.

pivnizub (11056) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Flasche: Pale golden with a greenish sheen, a bit unclear, small but lasting white creamy head; mild to moderate pale-malty and grassy to herbal-hoppy nose; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied, but soft; pale malt with bisquity traces in the drier bitter-sweet finish. Kwite good... and far better than the belgo-french Lager swill that is unfortunately served in many british pubs...

Benters (182) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Pint on draught at hotel in Devon. Pours a light golden, clear with lively carbonation and a thin white head. Aroma is bready, lightly roasted malt, some sweetcorn and fine hop. Taste is crisp, refreshing with rounded bitterness. A tasty lager which has more flavour than many on the market.

really strong-tasting, full bodied lager from cornwall. have had on draught multiple times at bristol's excellent the gryphon - definitely not a lager for fools! excellent malty taste and a fantastic golden colour - this is a lager that you can almost chew! haha! trust me it is a good thing!

Bijl (976) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2017
Goudgeel, helder, witte schuimkraag en voor een lager rustig koolzuur. Aroma: Pilsmout, iets gras, spicy gehopt. Smaak: Fris, graan, iets citroen, spicy hops. Licht en fris en zacht koolzuur. Lager... niets mis mee.
