3.8/5  rDev +18.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beer pours a light golden color and clear (not "cloudy" like other Coopers varieties). Small amount of effervescence, aswell as a small head from this bottle which is dated 6months prior to my open date. Head dissipates fairly quickly. No discerning smell.

Taste is light as expected from this style, with a predominantly malt taste and a slightly hoppier finish, making for an excellent mouthfeel/experience from start to finish. Very drinkable session beer and overall nice example of a lager.

3.5/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12.7 oz. bottle, into a pint glass. The beer poured a light yellow, forming a thick 2 inch head, that left very slight lacing on the glass, once it faded. Not much in the nose, but what is detectable, is very much like any of the light lagers from the Big 3. The mouthfeel is light, like a lager should be. The taste is alot better than your average lager, IMHO. Very clean finish, making this an easy beer to session, especially on a hot summer day. I'm not a big drinker of lagers, but this one was very enjoyable.

Pours a clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, small head, not bad lacing around the edge's. Scents of hops, malts, slight yeast, and spices. The taste is hoppy/malty, nice clean finish. Light-Medium body. Not a bad lager at all. Would recommend, but most likely will not buy again.

3.2/5  rDev 0%

Pale yellow/gold in colour. Pours a rocky white head, with some large bubbles. Leaves a nice lace.
Smells of typical macro Aussie lager. Metallic POR hops, some subtle sulfur.
Fairly innocuous taste... grain and some nuttiness that may be Munich or somesuch, nice late burst of hop flavour.
Creamier front mouthfeel than Aussie macros, although it finishes crisp & dry.
I'd drink this over Carlton/Lion bulk beers anyday, but I think there are other Premium labels that have more character & interest.
A singlel bottle at Dan Murphy only cost $2 AUD, so it's good value IMHO.

3.3/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Quite pale in colour , only slightly effervescentand a thin indeterminate head.
Unfortunately it has the almost obligatory metallic smell of most Australian Lagers , however there is a malt/grain background that diminishes the nastiness to the smell.
The taste to me is somewhat of a cross betwen a typical Euro Pale Lager (that has sweet malt predominance 0 and an American Macro Lager (that is bittere tastlessness)
So we end up with a rounded sweet tasting beer that finishes bitter and very dry.
It is a cut above most regular Australian Lagers and whilst not achieving any complex heights seems to be a drinkable session Lager
