this is a real gem of an ale, nice yeasty fruity aroma. This has a well balanced flavour with a really nice fruitiness and balance of bitterness and maltiness. This is proof that Australia can make a great beer consistently without having to be too "fancy". Other beers come and go, but this is a beer that is definately a stayer.

well bittered, cloudy appearance if poured with the sediment sparkling pale amber if not, very tasty and easy to drink, good session beer. go and get a carton, if it's too bitter try the more mellow pale ale.

Extremely easy to drink, that is about all I can say about this. Cloudy and musty appearance, with little to no aroma.

A wonderful, easy to drink ale. It is a nice orageish-amber color that is rather cloudy. The head is rather small but fragrant. This is a perfect beer for a nice summer day in WA.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Malty and yeasty aroma which came across to me maybe slightly nutty and slightly fruity. Looked great when I finally managed to pour the yeast into the glass (285ml glass not big enough for a 375ml bottle silly barman). Smooth and easy drinking with a little bit of fruit and a little bit of bread flavours. I had had this once before but the bottle was lacking any decent quantity of yeast (maybe too old or too young didn’t check) but this was really a decent drop with the yeast.

light irange-like aroma, cloudy dark orange in colour, small head and lots of small floaters, highly carbonated, bitter and tangy fruit taste, pretty reasonable.

Nicely done beer. Good yeasty notes, as well as some fruit and some fizz.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Over rated!! Light nutty, malted nose. Orange slightly clouded hue with a fast disappating head. Crisp, dry and uncomplicated taste. Very highly carbonated. Very watery though.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 Treat this baby with respect, otherwise it will mess you around. The more experienced of the two cooper twins this one hits the mark again, but at a slightly different level. Natural, the trademark cloudiness with a finish of bitterness, a nice drop. cheers

Good beer with reasonably high alcohol content. Easy to drink with a nice clean colour and a small amount of sediment.
