2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at an Outback. Golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet with some light malts and a bit of hop bitterness. Flavor had some solid malt and decent hop flavor - kind of a lighter Sam Adams Premium Lager. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Any lager with “premium” on the label I get very skeptical….Golden Anniversary is a premium lager (not that there is anything wrong with that). I got introduced to Coopers’ products recently and enjoy them, so I was eager to try their “real Australian lager.” It pours a pale golden with a beautiful picture perfect white head; it looks great in a dimple glass. It is a all malt lager that tastes similar to Victory’s Lager (with a little less kick in the back of the throat). Light carbonation, slightly sweet grainy malt notes. A very easy to drink; a decent lager. Buy a six pack or case to surprise some Molson drinkers.

So I guess Cooper’s has finally bent the knee to the pressures of the mass market. This is average pale lager fare all the way, albeit clean in the ingredients and palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mostly malts with a nice bitter finish. Slight chemical taste to it, but overall not too bad.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear pale gold with a thick, fluffy white head. Bready malt aroma. Flavor is pure pale lager, maybe a little more hop character than most US domestics. Slightly sour hop finish. Not bad for a pale lager, but nothing to shout about.

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle at Outback poured into a mug. Was a clear golden color with a quickly diminishing white head. My beer had no aroma to speak of. Flavor was malty-sweet with weak subtle hints of spice and yeast. Mouthfeel was watery with a sustained fizz. There is a thin hoppiness that carries through to the finish. A below average beer.
