Best after 2/1/13.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy tan 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, yeast, and some floral hop aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a very 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 average beer that is drinkable but pretty boring all around in my opinion.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Golden color with a fluffy head with low retention. Gets hazy when the residual yeast is poured with lots of floating particles.
Refreshing aroma of sweet pale malt and herbal hops. Later got some oranges.
Flavor is a bit different, given the English hops notes. Perfect balance. Some nice citrusy and earthiness going on as well. Mildly dry aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation and a pleasant spicy feeling.
Pretty decent quaff, great as a Session beer, but still reasonably flavorful. You can really tell the English influence which I liked. I wish I had in my country a major brewery with such decent quality, good beer for the masses.

Coopers Pale Ale looks great, on account of the bottle fermentation and subsequent sediment. The smell is ok as is the taste. It's a little too high on the carbonation for my liking, but it will have its adherents due to the marketing of their unique approach to brewing.
