I tried Coopers Pale Ale after a friend spoke highly of it while in Australia a few years ago. years later trying it while listening to a band from Australia. Maybe a faint grain malt smell. The malt character is bread, yeast. Most of the sediment was mixed, would leave that out next time.Not enough hops for my liking. I'll stick with the band before the brew.

375ml bottle served in the tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazy yellow to baige color forming a medium bubbled white head which dissipates quite quickly leaving pratically no lacings

S: Quite grainy in the nose. Good touch of flowery hops and bready yeasts

T: Follows the nose. Quite grainy in the mouth. Upfront is made of a light sweet malts taste, followed by nice hops and a bready taste. Bready yeasts which are very Coopers trademark (the ones that use the Coopers Kits to homebrew will know what I mean :))

M: Light body. Sparkling carbonation. Aftertaste is made of mainly malts and flowery hops. Mild bitterness

O: Classic Pale Ale. A session Ale for hot wheater. Simple but pleasant. Quite average...

Pours a cloudy urine yellow with a thin head, not very nice to look at.

Not much of an interesting aroma, some malty grains etc...

Tastes rather bland, no hops to speak of, musky beady malts.

Really not that good of a beer certainly won't buy again. Their sparkling ale is better!

Brown bottle. Standard pint glass.

Appearance: Poured with the sediment produced a hazy yellow with a small white head. No retention or lacing.

Aroma: What aroma? Faint bready and perhaps some hops?

Taste: Bland, adjunct-y, diacetyl, bread, slight floral hop on the finish.

Mouthfeel: The main thing saving this beer was the bottle conditioning. Makes for a creamy smooth body that helped this beer be a bit more drinkable. Still it lacks in flavor and finish. Light body and hardly any carbonation.

Wasn't impressed with this at all. Didn't make me think of an English pale at all. Tasted like macro-swill.
