COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle & keg; Unfiltered.
Ingredients: Water, Barley, Hops, Yeast.
"With its fruity character, and robust flavour, Coopers Pale Ale is perfect for every occasion. Naturally fermented in the 'Burton-on-Trent' style, a secondary fermentation creates the trademark sediment that gives 'Pale' its fine cloudy appearance. This cloudy residue can be stirred through the beer by tipping or rolling the bottle before drinking."

Excalibur123 (323) - Soria, SPAIN - FEB 1, 2016
Vierte amarillo oro turbio con pequeña cabeza de espuma presentando baja retención; aromas a malta, hierbas y pan, en boca entrada ligera y refrescante, maltosa y con débil amargor, cuerpo medio-ligero con bajo carbónico, cerveza con perfil más parecido a una lager, cuando se calienta aparecen notas a pan tostado y cereal, pero no ofrece mucho más destacable, resultando anodina.

Zymurgeist2 (1531) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle to pint. Grainy husk and slight citrus aroma. Pours a very hazy yellow gold. Massive turbidity. Large amount of sediment. Flavor is husks and cereal with slight orange backing. Thin mouthfeel.

Nectar of the Gods in South Australia. On a hot summer day, a 4C Paley is the ultimate session beer. An ale (you know, so it has actual flavour as opposed to the filtered down lager options) that doesn’t pretend to be more than it is, refuses pretentiousness and just delivers a straight up, quality beer you can drink with your mates. Yes, it has sediment. It’s a bottle brewed ale. Get over it. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with good head, good retention too after a mellow roll. Taste of a clean, crisp malt, a touch of earth and floral at the side of the tongue. If you want the best beer in the world, this isn’t it. If you want a solid brew you can enjoy all night with mates over the pool table/campfire/whatever...this is it. As us locals say...go the green, be nice and lean. Don’t change up, you’ll turn mean.

Towey1989 (1182) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear deep golden colour with no head. Murky sediment left in a third of the bottle. Aroma is sweet of grain, maize, some orange, slight peach and weird, perfumey hops. Taste of grain, some maize, a little diacetyl, subtle orange and a little peach. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, dry, grainy bitterness in the finish. Getting past all the beer and sediment left, it’s quite lager like with subtle citrusy hoppiness. Quite disappointing.

4.5%ABV. Golden Ale. Nose has some nice thick honey aroma notes. Maybe some ripe pear. Tapped out a dirty blonde. 6°SRM. Mouthfreel is sudsy. Palate has pale malt flavors of water crackers, soda biscuits, some pale peanuts. Palate starts out with a round sour palate and the cuts bitter suddenly, and then bobs up again with some pale malt sweetness and then a brief bitter finish.

KyotoLefty (8499) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle. Deep golden orange, cloudy, with lace. Malty, estery nose, peach and some banana. Crisp fruit flavor, nectarine, estery. Crisp but smooth, a bit of acidity and oxidation. Light, prickly hop finish. Nice drinking but nothing special.

Found notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. The poor man’s sparkling ale. Cookers sparkling is much more lively and more flavorful. Just an ok ale. Some hops and grains.
