A: Slightly cloudy, straw colour. Thin head remains with no lacing.

S: Slight grassy/ earthy scent with a metallic undertone

T: Watery which is expected from a midstrength beer, bready aftertaste which I liked.

M: Thin and watery

O: A standard midstrength beer, not bad but I have other favourites in the midstrength beers I would buy over this.

At first I thought, not really bad, but also not very traditional. Then it started downhill. First thing I noticed was the color being quite light. It did have some noticeable hops, but not much malt - very thin. Unbalanced beer. There's significant long lasting carbonic tang. Not much in the aroma department either. Now that I'm done with this review, the brew gets dumped.

Bottle: a brown 375mL bottle with the standard Coopers macro label.

Appearance: rolled the bottle per the Coopers norm, pours a cloudy straw with a limited, flacid head (no pun). Minimal head and lacing. Not great to be honest.

Aroma: a fair nose for a mild: grains, Coopers yeast and grass hops. Not mind-blowing, but reasonable.

Taste: a very light palate of Coopers yeast and some dark fruits, but mostly grain. Quite one-dimensional.

Aftertaste: a touch of bitterness comes through on the finish.

Mouth feel: again reasonable but not brilliant. Light to moderate in body with a moderate carbonation.

Overall: tastes somewhat like a lighter / lower ABV version of the Coopers flagship Pale Ale and Sparkling Ale. The only problem with that is that it lacks any kind of individuality, and just leaves me thinking 'Why not just get a Pale Ale?" If I was getting a semi-craft lower ABV beer, I'd just get a Little Creatures' Rogers beer.

A: Pours a cloudy straw color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus with some malt sweetness.

T: Citrus taste with a malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body, smooth and fairly bland.

O: Drinkable, at least it is a bit more robust thaan most of the light beers on the market.

If you looking for a nice medium beer, this one is quiet good. It is milder then the sparkling or pale, but probably more drinkable.

A better balanced flavor in my opinion then the Coopers clear.

I tend to find the light beers not very nice to drink. While full strength is not very practical. This is just right.

With it being precisely one standard drink it is easier to keep a track on how much you have had to drink.

I should try in a glass to review more characteristics. But I feel this maybe unfair as I think it the sort of beer you would take to a babie or picnic.

I can fully understand why Coopers created this drop, nice one.

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

Bottle purchased by @epiclurk, rolled before pouring.

Hazed but pleasantly bright dusty yellow colour, with a lot of dropped sediment. Head is a bit fizzly, leaving only a scum of white suds on the top of the glass. Patchy lace. Thin body. Pretty mediocre looking beer, to be honest.

Nose is soft with earthy hops, with a generic PoR character to it. But, fittingly, it's mild at least, giving only a slight twang to the basis. Again, it's very light, a little bit flat and not all that exciting.

Taste is similar. Light, but mild, with slight yeasty tones on the back, and a residual earthy bitterness. Quite a dry palate, leaving a sparkle of carbonation, but very little sweetness—the fact that it is so light in body probably contributes to this as well.

Overall, not unexpectedly, it has the generic Coopers characters toned down from, say, the Pale or the Sparkling ale. It ends up being not particularly exciting or interesting as a result. But for a sub 4% beer, this is one of your best bets in Australia.
