2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It's weird. Reminds me of a cross between fake-champange-sparkling-grape-juice and a soft drink trying to mask itself as an ale. Still, it is rather refreshing but only in small doses.

Bottle. Poured correctly this is a good looking beer. Golden honey colour with solid beading head. Slightly sweet with good body texture. I like the malt and yeast combo on the taste. Has a long palate that you can savour. Drinks well for a while but it's best to get them as fresh a possible.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice change of pace. Bready ale aroma. Hazy bubbly beer, as the name suggests. A very clean-drinking beer. A little fruity, champagne-y. Clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden amber. Pear, apple, banana malt nose. Small sticky head. Lots of carbonation. Light fruit, apples. Pale malts, yeast is real nice, finishes dry and clean. Very refreshing, drinkable brew. Not too shabby.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
1/4 draught: I remember it being better than this :(. Yeasty aroma with stale hop smell. Cloudy yellow-amber colour with small white head. Sweet/fruity and yeast taste, but with an astringent stale tang to it. Rather thin body too. I remember it being better, maybe it was an old keg??

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is pleasantly grassy/hoppy---on the light side...Color is a cloudy bronze/gold with moderate white head---patchy lace...As for flavor, grassy tanginess rides shotgun with assertive hoppy bite...Malt provides little flavor support but adds nicely to the body. The finish is medium dry and slightly spicy. overall, this offers nothing truly distinguished, but the hops do come through smartly, and it has more than adequate body...I'm not generally fond of blonds (ales, that is!)...This is better than most.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy off-yellow, very hazy. Nose not good, oddly sour, bit ugly. Flavor is very crisp, a bit tart and musty, some lemony sweetness. Hard to characterize, but quite interesting. Have to try one on a hot day, think the refreshment value of this would up the rating somewhat.

3.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sweet fruity beer with a unique taste, sediment gives yeast and character. Golden colour and a taste to match, coopers just cant go wrong.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasing golden color. Lots of sediment and a heavy haze. Fruity aroma. Alcohol and yeasty esters also present. Somewhat sour (in a good way). Fruity and sweet. Low hop presence but it's not needed.
