Bottle from Peckhams, Glasgow (375ml, £1.95):
Hazy, pale yellow with a thin, quarter centimetre, foamy white head one top that stays relatively consistent throughout. There is also some darker sediment at the bottom of the glass as a result of my pouring skills.
Light hops and a bit of bread along with some light, floral notes too. There was some noticeable grain and a smell not unlike a pale lager but for the most part it was pretty basic and bland with not much strength.
Bread & some lighter, lager hops along with some grain make up most of the taste. There is some lemon, citrus and a touch of bitterness too but again this one is fairly basic and plain with only a touch of fruit towards the end to liven things up any.
Light medium body, perhaps a little thin but with fairly strong carbonation. There was also a bitter tang but overall it was slightly water and very plain.
Pretty bland and unexciting with not a whoe lot going for it really. It didn't seem much like an English pale ale or even a golden ale to me either, it was just so ordinary and bland. The carbonation was a bit strong and the body a bit light with almost no taste or smell to speak of.

Bottled beer served in a glass.
Golden honey colour and cloudy with suspended yeast. Head dissipates quickly to a thin film. Mild, but lasting effervescence.
A weak aroma overall, with predominantly yeast, baked bread and citrus characteristics, and hints of banana and sugar.
Lots of yeast and bread, with hints of lemon and lime. Finishes with a soda water aftertaste.
Prickly carbonation, with a viscous, frothy feel when swished. Foams up and lines the mouth when chewed.
An old reliable friend. This is on the cheap end of the scale locally, so it's my go-to everyday beer or if I want to supply a quality choice at parties without breaking the bank.
Easy to drink, with a pleasant flavour, albeit on the weak end of the flavour scale. The beer equivalent of a soda with lime; a tad on the bland side, but crisp and refreshing. Not the best Coopers brew, but it's usually cheap on tap and there is no better beer in its price range. Get a cheap jug of this next time you're at a bar in an Aussie uni; made for many good nights.
