look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours an opaque amber with foamy energetic head that dissipates quickly. Little on the nose except some bread notes. Flavour is crisp and bready but no mid-palate which makes it a little unsatisfying. Pride of Ringwood hops are very bland and are a common Oz hop which explains a lot I suppose. Drinkability is good with a nice sparkly mouthfeel so it is good at a BBQ. Not a great beer for art's sake.

3.16/5  rDev 0%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Bottled beer served in a glass.

Appearance -
Golden honey colour and cloudy with suspended yeast. Head dissipates quickly to a thin film. Mild, but lasting effervescence.

Smell -
A weak aroma overall, with predominantly yeast, baked bread and citrus characteristics, and hints of banana and sugar.

Taste -
Lots of yeast and bread, with hints of lemon and lime. Finishes with a soda water aftertaste.

Mouthfeel -
Prickly carbonation, with a viscous, frothy feel when swished. Foams up and lines the mouth when chewed.

Overall -
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.
