Treen’s Brewery

Resolve (5.2% ABV, bottle)
Full, rich, and verydark, says the label. Underplaying it a bit, in my humble op. The sweet dark malt, with its edge of bitter chocolate and coffee, on the aroma, also down plays what’s coming. So much going on when it hits the tastebuds. Berry fruits, malt, bitter chocolate, a slightly charcoal note, coffee, vanilla, and, just for good measure, a woody, earthy note, too. The bottle version — pouring black with thick, foaking, beige-coloured head — doesn’t quite hit the heights of the cask version, but it’s it’s still damed good and a great Friday night treat.
Buy: I got mine via the Pilchard Press Alehouse’s new delivery service. It’s in local shops, too, such as the Red Elephant Beer Cellar, Constantine Stores, and Ponsanooth Village Stores.

Smoulder (4.8% ABV, bottle)
A rich, deep amber/red with a slightly off-white head that dissipates quite quickly. On the mose, there’s sweet malt and an edge of smoke. Subtle, not like your neighbour’s barbecue. The smoke comes through more on the palate, very rauchbier, with some bready malt, toffee apple and a savoury hint, too, from the smoke. The smoke is definitely more pronounced than in the draught versions I tried, but still very enjoyable and a good entry point for those wanting to try smoked beers. A pint of the unusual, particularly when it comes to beers made in Cornwall.

Sunbeam (4.8% ABV, bottle)
Ah, the hiss of a well-sealed crown cap. It’s nearly summer, and here’s the perfect beer as the sun beams down. Deep golden with a head that stays well, it’s got quite a fruity nose, lemony, with grassy, floral hop notes and some biscuit malt. On the palate, the hops stay citrussy and floral, with some spiciness, and a balcning caramel sweetness that gradually bitters out on the finish. It’s a cracking, zesty, refreshing session bitter.
