5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a golden hue of orange with a slight note of mud in there - upon closer inspection, there was some peanut butter yeast as well as stunning precipitations of protein that clung to the readily disipating head of this wonderous brew.
Reminisent of the boot of my old Datsun - hints of old Carpet with the metallic tang of Rust. The Malt had aged spectacularily into the smoothest perceivable sweetness that coopers has been famous for. A floral hint of Black Wattle rounded out the nose of this drink.
As with the aroma - rusty Datsun Boot was dominant along with a subtle hint of Marmite (not to be confused with Vegemite of course) with a dry sour finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo en 27-02-2014 en el momento. Color amarillo con muy poca espuma blanca. Cuerpo ligero con 4.5 vol. Aromas ligeramente cítricos y bastante maltosos. Todo muy suave y ligeros sabores cítricos que junto con el gas que presenta parece una cerveza con casera. Sin mucho que resaltar, bastante refrescante.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, Edeka Mohr, Bonn 02/2014. Very watery and light-bodied chugging pale ale, with a crisp pale malts and an almost "invisible" yeast. An AUS pale ale very much in the UK mild tradition of pale ales, saved by its exotic starfruit, lime, lemon grass and tangerine perfume. Otherwise very much like the 2 Kölsch I had before this - no need to expend the CO2 importing this into Bonn.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 0.375l. Cloudy pale amber color with small frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and bready. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, follows by refreshing fruity and yeasty acidity, with spicy mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. I liked it more than sparkling ale...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
For me this is overrated. Not better than any Aussie mainstream lager, and in some cases a little worse. I love coopers sparkling ale but this one just has nothing going on even for the type it is.

Sabor a nada. Es como tomar una light lager. Poquísimo aroma también. Le falta mucho...
