2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Bottle. Surprisingly ok. Trying it because the bottle shop selection was pretty thin, but this is quite a nice, hoppy and refreshing, but overly sweet. Did manage to remind me of Czech.
Bottle enjoyed during a holiday in Australia. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. Source not recorded. Tasting notes not kept, just rating. sm89walt (2082) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2016
355ml bottle. I thought this was pretty fair. Swigged from bottle so can’t comment on appearance. Standard but not bad pilsin my book. Gentle lemon citrus flavours, some grassy hop and pale malt. A little grainy but mostly clean. Light-bodied, a little thin perhaps but crisp and refreshing with medium carbonation and a short, soft intensity hop bitterness to finish. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 15, 2015
355ml bottle looks smells tastes like a cheap Euro pale lager the aroma & flavour is mostly grain & straw quite dry lightly bitter was expecting so much more pretty crap overall Maris (1613) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2015
From a 355ml bottle on 8/2/2015. Pours an ultra clear light golden with a small head. Has an unimpressive nose featuring light grain. In the mouth, it’s similarly uninspiring - sweet malt, grain, corn and the barest hint of bitterness. A bit rich for them to call this a pilsener. It’s very much comes across as a standard pale lager. Thin body and average carbonation. I’m a bit of an advocate for Cooper’s ordinarily, but this is not worth defending. Pretty poor effort from a pretty good brewery. TedE (1544) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2015 355ml bottle into schooner glass. Sweet malt nose. Light amber with sudsy head. Taste is clean, watery. Aftertaste is bitter minerals. Promises a lot but doesn’t deliver.

From a bottle. Pours a very pale yellow, tiny head, almost ciderish aroma, very crisp palate, refreshing and worth a try. Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2015 Re visited, pretty inoffensive except for maybe the aroma - "wheat chaff" comes to mind with a hint of the coopers yeast. Bit overcarbonated, bit of mineral water, bit of bitterness jonnyguns (1108) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. Pretty standard pilsner. Biscuit malt driven and very light. Another main stream pils, prefer there pale ale. varanid99 (1399) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2014
Pale gold pour with no head. Aroma - mostly malt, no other aroma to speak of. Taste is just malty, sweet, very plain. Disappointing mrmoe (7) - - DEC 3, 2013 does not count
