Sampled this one at Outback. Of the three beers tried this one lagged the others. Aroma was almost nonexistant flavor was nothing special. Will pass on it next time.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mid-golden and mildly carbonated under a white head. Faintly aromatic with dusty grains and mild hops. Bitterness detectable in the flavor over a lagered base. Side by side with Boag’s Lager, I didn’t like Cooper’s as much, although either is a better choice than Foster’s.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Outback - Pours golden colored with minimal white head. Sweet faint malt aroma. This beer had enough bite to be decent, but was otherwise forgetable.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Newish beer, been around for about a year. Was also a new venture for Cooper’s who have more or less been an Ale brand.
The drop is a top one and goes down with ease, very nice lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a bright yelow with a white head. Aroma is sweet malts and not much else. Flavor is bitter and watery. Average for a lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is light but it has malt and grassy hops. There is no skunk or adjunct detectable. The appearance is pale gold with a two finger head. The flavor is not very sweet. It has some malt but it’s mostly mild and bitter. The palate is thin to the point of almost being watery and the aftertaste is slightly bitter. This is as clean tasting as it gets for a beer. Super easy to drink without knowing you even had a beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A bit better than american pale lagers. It has more backbone, but not a whole lot. This might be good with a thick burger.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
First off, I wasnt expecting much from this beer, but it surprised me a little. It wasnt bad. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Nothing special to look at. Aromas were unimpressive, a little grain and corn, just a flutter of cinnamon. The flavor was easy drinking and unoffensive. tastes like a pale lager, grainy with some subtle hops. Might be good coming in from a hot day in the sun.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12.7 oz bottle. Filtered with a dull golden hue. Tight ring of white head. Grainy bready nose. Crisp aromas. Light to medium bodied with a dry palate and crisp effervencence. Easy and smooth with a light malt flavor. Slight dry hop flavor. Ever so slight citrus note. Moderate lager. Crisp dry and refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sour and sickly nose. Pours pale orange/gold. Flavour is ok with a lot of cereal and some finishing bitterness. This is basically a slightly better-than-average lager from a brewery that tends to do more than ’slightly’ better-than-average beers.
