Tribute – St. Austell’s

1 Mins read

Quick Overview

A popular Cornish pale ale brewed by St Austell. An inviting pale amber appearance and an intense fruity aroma consisting of orange and grapefruit. A refreshing and sweet beverage that has crashes of citrus and hops. A lingering hoppy aftertaste that slowly explores a transition into bitterness.

This is just a Tribute…

Beep, boop – doo-be-do-be-do-doop. Couldn’t remember the greatest ale in the worl…yeah you get it.

First brewed to commemorate the 1999 solar eclipse that simultaneously gave the world a feeling of elation and a new found fear of being blinded by the sun. Luckily for us Tribute was there to calm us down and make the moment even more memorable.

The link to the sun is a fitting one as it very much feels like a summer drink. It carries a distinctive scent of tropical fruits and bursts of orange, creating a captivating bouquet that exceed the expectations of its pale amber appearance. Initially very sweet and refreshing, your tongue is coated with a variety of tangy fruits in a thirst quenching manner.

Slowly you begin to notice the malt and hops creeping their way into the experience and you are left with lingering and slightly bitter aftertaste. It is said that Tribute goes perfectly with chicken, much like any other drink in the world. However, it is also a fine accompaniment to gammon or fish for you sophisticated ale drinkers out there. 

So this summer grab yourself a Tribute, toss a fish on the BBQ – or in the microwave (no judgement here) – and enjoy this fine ale whilst casting your mind back to 1999 – a new millennium of hope on the horizon, no credit crunch destroying lives and the likes of Geordie Shore and TOWIE were yet to ruin television for everyone.

Ah, simpler times.
