Best after 1/27/13.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and slight citrus-like hop aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, floral, and citrus hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is decent but the aromas and flavors on this one seem fairly muted.

one of the great Australian brews, unique and bright, like Australia itself. it pours a hazy golden color, sunny, with some yeast floaters and a large but relatively short lived white head. the nose is clean and crisp like a lager, but with quite a bit of hops, pale and maybe even wheat malts, a summer beer of sorts, with a good kick. the flavor profile is pure refreshment. the yeast and hops make it much more flavorful than other beers at this price point, and the excessive carbonation really wakes you up, keeps you chipper, and cleanses the palate. great in hot or cool weather, on tap or from the bottle, this is a versatile beer, and a fine example of Australian brewing culture. I really really enjoy this, probably my favorite from coopers. I spent many an evening sucking these back. the floral hop profile is just lovely.

Orange color with visible sparkling bubbles and a fluffy head with low retention that disappeared completely. Got really hazy with floating particles in the last pour.
Pleasant aroma of English hops and sweet malt. Hints of citrus and pine.
Taste similar to nose, sweet biscuit malty flavor and floral and herbal hops with notes of apple juice, guaraná and white grapes. Hints of minerals with a spicy yeast. Medium bitterness and mildly dry aftertaste.
Light body with an initial soda type of carbonation.
Decent beer, very sessionable and easy to drink. More flavorful than a Lager done for the same purpose.

A: Poured from a bottle into a SA Perfect Pint glass. Pours a hazy, light amber color with little head that simply has a a ring around the outside edge of the glass. Sediment can be seen floating around in the beer, slowly settling.

S: Smells of pale malts and light yeast, somewhat earthy, more of a mineral tone.

T: Much like the nose, malts, a light amount of yeast, almost a mineral water quality, light fruit notes (apple, grape).

M: Slick, slightly viscous, very smooth and crisp. Not a huge amount of carbonation, but it suits the flavors well.

O: Tasty, I was a bit surprised by the initial amount of sediment, as I wasn't expecting any, but the sediment does not detract at all from the quality of the beer. I'd definitely give this a try again.
