typical coopers label with a best after date. hmm, on a mild. whats this? even looking at the brown bottle, i can see right through it. maybe im thinking dark mild, but this is way pale. hazy yellow in color with light lacing of bubbles. speaking of bubbles, lots of tiny ones floating up through the brew.
hmm (again). floral amarillo hop like aroma. very much like an american blonde light ale?
some bitter sweetness to the taste. a bit of hop flavor through the middle. seems more weighted towards hops as malt/sweetness is almost nonexistant.
well, a bit underwhelming, and i dont think i was expecting too much from it. they have better brews than this at coopers.

As soon as I poured this I was disappointed. After a hard day's work the enjoyment of any beer is enhanced, yet this one is upsettingly average for a Cooper's ale. The head seemed not to form correctly while pouring, so there was an excess of effervescence and a consequent lack of head retention. There is noticeably less yeast suspended in the beer than most Cooper's ales, which is one thing I love about the brewery. It is fairly mild, but I just noticed some faint but pleasing roast coffee characteristics. Overall, I hoped this would be better, it's not bad but it's not great. I'll give it another go one day in case it was a slightly infected brew (explaining the flatness) but maybe I just prefer a meatier Cooper's.

So this is Coopers attempt at a mid-stregth. Should be intresting if nothing else...

A darker slightly cloudy amber colour (more bronze perhaps?) that has a lite fluffy head that soon goes. Good firm carbonation.

Has a touch of the "cooper-ness" to the nose, but those wicked yeasty aromas found in their other brews are severely limited here. Has a touch of grainy malt but nothing to intresting or complex.

Creamy mouthfeel with a very flat palate. Too flat in fact for a Coopers beer. Has a real citrus hop tang with some slight light malt flavours in the end. Pretty boring.

Well, it seems overall this is a pretty lackluster effort by Coopers. However, this is still better than any commercial light/mid strength out there (still tastes cooperish!) but I would head for the Rogers or Moonlight before this one.
