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.

Best after 21/4/14

It is pale yellow in color and very hazy. Chunks of yeast are floating in suspension. It looks like the 20 year old Busch that I poured a couple months ago. It has a couple of inches of off-white head that settled to a thin veil just covering the top of the beer.

It has a sweet grain smell along with some floral aromas.

This taste is surprisingly good. It tastes like sweet bread with hints of honey.

Prickly carbonation dances across my tongue for a dry, clean finish.

It's been a few years since I have had this beer. It is a pretty darn good English pale ale.

So here I am, eating some 'roo and watching some cricket, and decide to try this bad boy. Smells better than it tastes, but still a very tasty beer. Definitely will drink again.
