500ml Bottle from Asda (£1.99):
Bright, amber brown to copper colour with a thick looking lacing for a head that looks like a layer of foam on top of the clear beer.

Solid bitter aroma to start with strong earthy notes and a lot of bitterness along with some caramel and earthy notes. There is an earthy hop aroma to but this is followed by an unexpected citrus aroma and some sweeter fruits along with a few floral notes.

Earthy malts and subdued hops from the nose there is the citrus taste as well but this is more up front than it was on the nose. There is a trace of biscuit and some caramel too along with lemon zest and a touch of spice.

Medium and smooth body with medium to moderate bitterness and the slightest of citrus tangs on top of this. Well balanced and easy to drink with a crisp, well carbonated finish.

A basic bitter but has the nice addition of some citrus fruits added on top that gives it a new dimension and helps it go down pretty easily. Whilst not one that I'd go back to all that often, this one is a nice beer and worth a try.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014. Picked up a little while back from a supermarket. A classic pale ale that shares both modern and traditional influences.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A golden-amber hue with faint haze and plentiful carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before settling as a patchy surface layer. Aroma of floral hops with hints of grass/hay, faint fruitiness, ale yeast, biscuity malt and a touch of earthiness. Relatively subtle but pleasant.

Tastes of light caramel malt with a floral hop character and a crisp, dry finish. Notes of flowery hops, grass/hay, subtle white pepper, biscuity grain, fruity ale yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a mild bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and decent body. Lightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of grassy hops, earthy yeast and faint malt.

A nicely-balanced pale ale with a light, hoppy character. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are a satisfying blend of grassy hops, fruity ale yeast and malt. Body is OK; a tad thin but it suits the style. Quenches a thirst, particularly on a hot day. I can also attest that this is very nice on cask. Worth sampling if you come across it.

500ml bottle. Guiness Pint glass. Brass color, clear appearance. White crown shows fairly good retention. Pale malt, subtle toasted, orange & citric aromas. Slight toasted flavor, hints of tropical fruit & floral bitterness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Notes of orange pulp, citric zest, grapefruit & raspberry in the middle. Sweet dry finish. Fruity aftertaste. Easy drinkable & suggested for a nice beer session.

Bought in a bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Warm, gold with a touch of red. Hardly any bubbles rising, fair bit of a head from my lack of pouring prowess.

Smell: Smells okay, similar to lager but a bit nicer.

Taste: The starting point is similar to lager, but it is a deeper perhaps nuttier taste.

Feel: Feels wet. Nothing wrong with this one.

Very nice and it goes down very easily.

Had this beer in bottles, on tap and fresh from the brewery. It is a great beer every way. Originally brewed as a special, this is now St. Austell's flagship beer. Brewed using their own special malt, Cornish Gold, and Maris Otter. I get an pint of Tribute every time I get a chance.

Serving type: on-tap
