Korev Cornish Lager – St Austell Brewery (KER)

Cornish Lager? Surely not? Well, St Austell Brewery has done a fine job with this amber brew, made from all-Cornish ingredients. I always struggle to describe a lager because they tend to taste ….. well , ‘lagery’

Korev ...... Cornish for 'beer'
Korev …… Cornish for ‘beer’

 

Having said that this is a classy lager, reminiscent of an established European brew like Kronebourg 1664. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a nice tang in the finish, it tastes stronger than its 4.8% abv. If I were to go back to drinking lager, this would be a good place to start.

Here’s Mercury Rev (see what I did there) with ‘Holes’ …….

  1. I get down to Cornwall four times a year, but never bother with this because the tribute and proper job are so good. I’ll definitely give it a go next time. And I haven’t listened to that song for years – cheers!
