This was my favourite beer from my time in Australia. Pours a hazy pale orange which sparkles, small foamy white head. Aromas of lemon and malt. Tastes of light sweet malt, a citrus & fruity aftertaste. Some light yeast qualities coming through from the bottle conditioning. Very much a Aussie session ale, one to drink when your having a few.

BAD 8/18/14. Being bottle conditioned, the pour is cloudy and light amber in color. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention.

Very light nose of light hops over biscuit. Lemon is present as well as a slight spicy note.

Light medium body that is smooth. Nice carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly finish.

The flavor profile is intense, not complex and not very balanced. It begins with a muddled flavor that eventually allows some lemon to be identified. The middle is mildly bitter with nothing to balance. The finish is slightly dry and a muddled off flavor lingers.

It has fruity and floral characters, balanced with a crisp bitterness, Coopers Pale Ale has a compelling flavour which is perfect for every occasion. A secondary fermentation creates the trademark sediment that gives Pale its fine cloudy appearance.
