Review: 50cl Can of Coop Prix Garantie Lager Bier: ABV: 4.8%
Can also be known as The Coop Lager!
On pour I get a pretty nice clear golden yellow colour and nice frothy head. It settles well and looks pretty fantastic truth be told. Is this really a cheap supermarket brand, what the hell!!!
Bit of carbonation, bubbling away nicely
A lovely head that maintains, has good lacing, nice lively carbo, fizzing away, heh this looks good!!
Has a nice lagery smell, very nice on the nose. Detected corn and some malts.
The taste is surprisingly not bad at all, all things considering, albeit it has a slight sour taste
Very strong flavour and sweet to drink with a bitter aftertaste, but for the price it is ok, Can taste corn and starchy pale malts.
When you factor in the cost, Coop lager is not bad. Coming at you for about 50 Swiss cents a can, I will drink to that, cheers. Could argue that its better value than its parent company’s main brew (Heineken), which from what I can remember of the top of my head is roughly 2 Francs per can.

clear golden colour, big creamy head, nice lace, herbal nose, full-bodied with a dry bitter finish, clean and well-balanced - could almost qualify for a pilsener Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 13, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Canned 50cl. Chestnuts, mushrooms, hops and herbs in the taste. Nicely bitter, woody with a hint of strawberries. Fruity hoppy finish with a touch of lemon sorbet. Excellent price. Great value. Nicely hoppy. Impressive. jsn (1) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2010 does not count
Easy to drink no nonsense pilsener like lager. Excellent value for money. Pretty flat when it comes to taste which is a good feat when you drink it while enjoying a meal but it will not rattle the senses of those looking for a great beer.

If I take the relation with the price, it is not a bad beer. The foam is normal for a lager depend how you pour the beer. The color is yellow and clear. At the nose, we feel the alcohol and few malt and when you drink it, you have few malt and hop but the metalic side or alcohol is well-balanced. The final sensation is in the mouth weak but not unplesant. It is just my opinion.

i had this beer quite a few times at various locations throughout switzerland. for being suisse, this beer is VERY cheap. not badm though. nice golden, wheaty look with strong carbonation and a moderate white head. tastes like bread, a bit of citrus, and a good deal of hops. mouthfeel is average. not bad for the price. jfb (6229) - GERMANY - MAY 18, 2015
(bottle) clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of honey-tinged pale malts, some foral hops and powdered sugar, with a very light hint of candle wax and black pepper. flavour is mostly pale malts and more wax, rather nondescript, with a light touch of banana skins and white grapes. medium-bodied with average carbonation.KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2010

Clear golden with a medium white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet flavour with malty, hoppy and caramel notes. Finished dry and bitter. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle (courtesy of Koelschtrinker). Grainy malt and grass aroma. Golden yellow color with large white head. Sweet corn/barley malt and lightly bitter grass hops flavor. Decent for a store-brand lager. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2011
can from Coop Kreuzlingen. Clear pale yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty, dusty, harsh, woody hoppy finish. There are worse cheap lagers.
