UPDATED: AUG 22, 2021 This feels like a return to prior form after a big hop bomb in 2020. Fresh, the 2020 vintage was something else and maybe polarizing enough to see Coopers tone this one down by 5 IBUs. For me, I’d like to see a return of Simco next year.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2021 Straddles the line between refinement and grit. Like how wealthy Australians are portrayed in Hollywood; fine wine and class, but also looking like they're fresh off a horse, and probably drunk. jase3812 (263) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2020

There's an almost 'VB' esq taste upfront, but if you persist you'll come across a strong, dignified palate. It's like persisting through three episodes of Married at First Sight then realising it's actually a remarkable critique of 16th century French poetry

Well presented and quiet respectable throughout, until a sudden kick of sweetness at the end, which undermines it a little, like beautiful poetry that turns out to be about boobs.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2020 Quite sharp with flavour. Very malty and peppery in finish. Would be interesting to see how this beer settles flavour wise if left cellared for a few years. I’d suspect it will be smoother and more rich. But I’m not one to let a beer sit that long before drinking it so I’ll never know.
