2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Tasted from the bottle into a stein glass. Poured a hazy pale gold, with a short lived lather of white foam. Aroma of green apples and grass, with a little of Cooper’s famous yeast notes and a hinkering of malt as it warmed. Flavour was like gripping chalk between your teeth, Little malt character and low hop tones made for a rather surprising turn for Cooper’s. This questionable beer, with its soapy undertones, has marred the proud ales of this brewery for me. There is little ’heritage’ at all in this one.

I’m just updating my records. Not up too Coopers usually good standards. A bit disappointing.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
25 Apr 2006 - Very light sweet hop aroma. Clear amber colour, reasonable head and lacing. Hoppy low malt flavour. Thin, simple hop finish and aftertaste.

By Coopers standards this is pretty bad. Over sweet and sugary. What is with the heritage bit... Very out of character for this brewer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Small white head, on a clear golden base. Strawy lagery aroma. Light malty taste, some POR too. Plain finish. Dont really see any point to this beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of straw and malt, while the flavor is a boring malty one, with a light hoppy end. Boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hrm...this one is definitely hype over substance. Great looking bottle with white foil up the neck. Impressive name. The actual beer is not a patch on their bottle conditioned ales. Coppery amber in colour with small rocky off white head which does not really last. Stuff all in the aroma, some feint malt, very feint esters, nothing else. Taste is a bit buttery, a little fruity, but almost no balancing hop bitterness. Mouth is fizzy and watery...disappointing on the whole.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Light hazy yellow colour, some nice floral notes and nothing skunky or rough to speak of, but fairly uninspiring overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
375 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden beer. A touch of peach/apricot aroma. Flavour of honey, peach and apple. Light floral hop character. Light acidity on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colour. Lightly honeyish, bready malt aroma. Somewhat bland, honeyish and a little biscuity. Seems well-enough-made but lacks guts.
