Beer poors with no head and has a very cloudy amber color. Particulate matter ranged from tiny to pretty large. The aroma is light with a malty / pear aroma. The mouthfeel is sparkling with a medium body.

Drinking this while looking out over the Strait of Juan de Fuca of Puget Sound from the balcony of my motel in Port Townsend, Wa - so it is not a normal setting for a beer. Hard to get a read on this one - odd, day old grass clippings aroma. Appearance - looks like a light golden colored candle with the sediment floating around in slow motion. With each sip, the sediment re-situates itself like sunspots dancing around. Flavor, slightly sour - but not unpleasant. Tangy aftertaste. Other offerings from Cooper's much better.

Almost as tart and fruity as a wheat beer - lively, goes brilliantly with spicy food.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 Genuine quality beer just like all the coopers range. Full flavour and fruity like a good ale, quite strong and ovepowering however. Has a cloudy appearance but tastes cleaner than it looks. Has a very favourable bitter finish. Needs just a little more malt.

An unclear orange beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is faintly malty. The flavor is fresh, malty and feels sparkling on the tongue. Not a special beer - but maybe my hopes were too high after reading Michael Jacksons recommendation.

I think I got an old batch. It was cloudy and fruity, but overly sedimented with large floating chunks, and it has that "old beer" character ... bit more yeasty and citric than you'd expect. I'd give this another chance if I can find a new pack.

Dominant yeasty and tangy harsh flavour, dry hop bitterness.Un-inspiring.

This was another beer from the Christmas pack I received, but it appears to have aged well; with the continued bottle conditioning from the yeast left in. It had a quickly disappearing head, good moderate carbonation, dark golden color, with sediment foating around. It had a clean 'sparkling' taste, some apple and pear overtones, and a good clean hop finish. I was surprised by it's quality.
