2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle sample from early backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, hints of caramel and biscuits, some fruitiness with mild citrus and apples. Everything seemed weak and stale. Maybe it doesn’t travel well.

Smooth malty sweet smell, taste is similar...malty with very low hops...taste that is hard to place...slight butterscotch?

375ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Bland aroma. Pale, but hazy, small brief head. Fizzy palate, thin and watery. Some starch. Not so good. Apple. No thank you.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color, topped with small wjite head. It quickly settles to a small cover.
The aroma is pleasantly malty, there are also some sweet fuits. Some dust later on.
The taste is sweet, slightly spicy. Some unpleasant bittery taste later. There’s some metallic feel in the aftertaste.
Not my favourite Coopers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Slightly hazy golden with thin white short-lived head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, vegetable - it’s good that it has some boldness, but it is somewhat inelegant. Light bodied, fizzy and refreshing. Taste is soft malt, some restrained pleasant fruitiness, bread, maybe some peppery spice and some moderate, but rather harsh, bitterness in the finish. Much better than most mass produces Australian beers, easily drinkable, but these days there are a lot of better beers readily available.
