2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355mL bottle from local BWS
Clear golden body, white head doesn’t stick around.
Moderate-low sort of aroma - grainy, toasted white bread sort of malt base, touch of browned apple/acetaldehyde, honey note.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Simple sort of affair on the body, toasty malts, touch of floral hop, moderate bitterness, reasonably clean overall.
A reasonable lager, misses the finesse of a good pils though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 15/1/2016. Pours a clear medium golden with a small head. There’s not much in the nose just a bit of sweet malt and fruit. The taste is a bit more interesting with a distinct sweet/sour fruitiness, some spicy/herbal elements and a decent amount of bitterness at the back. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Doesn’t really present as a typical pilsner. All up, unremarkable but still a decent enough, friendly beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fairly hazy gold with a moderately lasting bright white head. Aromas are of honey and somewhat fruity with a herbal note underneath. Flavour is clean with a pils malt sweetness and a quite soft palate. Surprisingly some alcohol in the late palate with the short finish. Medium light body and a fine bubbled carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not real good, some nasty banana like esters aroma which follows through. I don’t know if this is a bad one but I suspect not. A bit pretentious. Disappointed by Coopers lately (apart from the lovely stout), it shouldn’t be that hard given your heritage to produce a decent complex craft beer fellas, how about doing something different instead of the variation on-a-theme offers on hand. Stop hiding behind the beard of the serious looking guy on the label and take some risks ffs.

355ml bottle into glass. Fresh sweet almost creamy aroma. Pale yellow beer with many bubbles,small but solid head. Thin, slight mineral water mouthfeel. The taste is an increasing hop bitterness leading to a bitter lemon/pepper finish. It’s OK.

(Bottle) Clear straw / golden with small head that vanished quickly. Aroma a mix of vege, cardboard and grassy hints. Light bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Crisp tart start over some light maltiness, develops some spiciness and some bitterness. It’s ok, but not special.
