Tastes nice and hoppy which is pretty good for an imported 4% session ale. This is a decent beer with a pleasnant hop nose , flowery due to the types of hops used. Light mouthfeel which suits the style of beer. very drinkable and a pleasant finish. Not amazing but a beer I would be glad to have on tap if I am ever in Cornwall.

Enjoyed at the royal Oak, Bath, UK.

The bartender said Scotland's ales were a bit "douchy" so this was a step up from what I'd had up north.

A: Copper bronze with a half finger head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing.

S: Grapefruit, orange, raisins, malts.

T: Malty, yeast-y, citrus. Dry finish.

M: Light to medium. Medium carbonation.

O: A very pleasant arrival brew for my stay in Bath. Great town, great pub, great beer.

The beer is light copper amber, has a small off-white head with little lacing.

Fruit, apples, pears, grass and nuts.

Tasting sweet brown bread, then pears and lime peel, alkaloids.

Medium carbonation, watery with a small body, a coarse dry finish.

A bit uneven, and a metallic bitterness. But in all an average bitter.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of June 2012. The label mentions that it is named after a character from Cornish folklore.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A hazy orange-amber colour with high carbonation. Produces a massive head of creamy off-white foam; this lasts for ages before eventually subsiding to a thick surface layer. Aroma of subtle malt with notes of dry yeast, mild citrus and a hint of soap/detergent(!?). Slightly sweet.

Tastes of grainy crystal malt with a dry finish. Notes of earthy yeast and subtle aromatic citrus. A faint spiciness on the tongue, but little bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry, with decent body and prickly carbonation. Somewhat astringent. Aftertaste of dry yeast.

Not bad - a tasty session ale. Quite yeasty, though I suspect this is because I've hung on to the bottle for too long. Wouldn't mind if the aromatic hops were a shade more pronounced. Drinkable - worth sampling.

500ml bottle (best before 28 July 2012) poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 9th May 2012.

Light to mid brown in body colour, clear and clean: on top an off-white crown of foaming bubbles.

Good malty nose and taste: molasses and malt biscuits stuck together by a mildly hop presence.

Almost as good as the cask version: a fine blend of flavours and very, very drinkable.
