Bottle conditioned.
Brewed with choice malts and an extended top fermentation. This naturally conditioned ale experiences interactions between the robust malt, hop and yeast characteristics, to exhibit an intriguing journey of flavour development over a period of five years when stored under cellar conditions.

2004 bottle from Utobeer. Cloudy chestnut colour with lasting white head. Excellent hop aroma. Good malts too. I like it. Good balance and nice flavours

janubio (439) - SPAIN - NOV 25, 2014
Hazy amber colour, big head and big lace. Smell is very faint, apples I think and caramel. Medium body and correct carbonation. Taste of fruits, apples and apricots. Easily drinkable, but I don’t feel nothing special in this one.

(2013) Houblon, malts, caramel, vegetal. Un bon équilibre, bière qui mérite une meilleure distribution, les australiens ont là une bonne bière!

John25 (677) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft at epcot’s food and wine festival 2014. Sunburst orange/tan. Aroma is citrus, floral, and toast. Taste adds some caramel and vanilla. Light tart puckery bitterness on the long finish. Medium body, rich feel. Very good overall - Note: the Epcot beer list is wrong and says coopers pale ale.

33cl bottle at home. Pale ruby brown with a medium off-white head with low retention. Medium body with quite some carbonation. Malts, caramel, vanilla, spices and herbs. A tasty one.

RafeAU (187) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2014
to me, the best coopers beer (extra stout is 2nd). alcohol warmth, nice malt flavours, subtly sweet. I don’t usually like english style beers but I enjoyed this.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Pours copper to brown color with a medium head. Aroma is yeast, cake / bread and a bit floral and citrus. Tasting caramel, dark malt, cola, slightly acidic with a smooth, sweet and slightly bitter finish. Solid malt body and low carbonation. Very nice ale and perfect for a hearty meat dish.

McNeillR (1325) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Vintage 2007

Burnt golden, thin border of a head. Sweet, surprisingly cinnamon vibrant malt chuck. Suprising carbonation for the age, keeps a sticky sweetness at bay a wee bit and a brassy tinny bitterness. Warming sweetness throughout, a real good kick for the ABV and bonus points it was on a Tesco shelf too regularly. Held up purdy well. Sits nice and sweetly on the finish.
