2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber-brown with a small but lasting white head. Aromas are caramel, apple pie, grass and grapefruit zest. Taste is sweet malt at first before a crisp citrus zest bitterness kicks in. Falls away at bit at the back end to a dry finish. Light fruity aftertaste. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Not a pretty beer - hazy / cloudy amber brown with no head. Pine metallic aroma with some subtle fruity notes, but the dominant aroma is not appealing. Light body with medium carbonation. Taste is quite pleasant, with some interesting and fairly complex fruity, estery flavours, some gentle sweetness and a reasonable amount of, rather sharp, bitterness in the finish. Overall quite drinkable, but it doesn’t really all hang together for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with white dense head that lasted well. Aroma of coopers yeast with some bready malts. Taste a maltier version of their pale ale moving to light bitterness then long dry roast bitterness. Palate lively carbonated (bit too much perhaps), medium body, good length to finish. Overall ok, but not that special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad beer, but nothing special. It’s one of the smoother, more easy drinking of the Coopers line. Aroma is of tree bark and malt. Flavor picks up a little of the malt, hops are there, but not in a big way. I really have a hard time seeing this as any kind of a hoppy beer. Unless you compare it to beers that don’t have any hops in them at all. Body/carbonation are ok. Finish is a bit long on the bittersweet side. Otherwise - meh.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy copper colour with a good white head. Aroma of caramel and dough. Taste is quite the same. A bit boring. Also a bit too much carbonation in there, which makes a pretty sticky mouthfeel. Okey, but not that interresting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Looked nice in a tulip glass- bright amber with high white head. Aromas of malt, biscuit, touch of brown sugar. Much lighter and fizzier than I had expected. No really memorable flavours to speak of. Fruity and a tad sweet. Not much of a celebration.
