StuffWine (178) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2014
Tried this beer long time ago back in final year of high school back in 1997. Had an allergy to wine so tried Cooper’s DB known to be good for allergy sufferers and diabetics. It had enough of an impression on me that I can rate it but perhaps not describe it fully. Bought a six pack, couldn’t finish more than two, and couldn’t GIVE away the remaining three to pissed teenagers once a bottle did the rounds for tasting.s Remember it being very watery and very dry, with a horrible stale beer aroma. But at least I didn’t get that allergic reaction! Muggus69 (2721) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
OLD NOTES FEB 17, 2004
Never had a diet beer before!? Light sweet aroma of malt that almost seems to be missing something. Pours light golden, not much head to speak of. Has the wierd sodary body I get with all of these less well known Coopers beer. Watery, and easy. A bit more interesting than their draught, and maybe a bit better for ya, but nothing special. bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2005
Clear filtered orange gold, with lots of bubbles flying to the top of the glass propping a rather lacklustre head. Aroma is all malt, although I somehow got some sweet berry fruits on tasting. The flavour is rather neutral, probably as intended, making it an easy quaffer but uninteresting. Average palate, with not a lot to argue with the mouth as it hasn’t got much of a body. As far as pale lagers go it’s in with the mix, but that’s nothing to be proud of. DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2005
Another example of "found this single bottle in the cooler" beers (always makes me a little wary). Anyway, turns out to be fairly unremarkable pale lager. It is quite dry, which I kind of liked. omhper (25713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Bottled. Pale golden. no head. Ricey sake aroma. Dry with loads of adjuncty rice flavour and some bread. Light bodied, but not thin. Low bitterness. Save for the bready malt flavour there is not much reason to chose this over, say, VB.

Pours a chill-filtered clear gold with a hello-goodbye 1cm head. Bit of pineapple in a generally fruity aroma. Oddly, this has less aroma than their light beer. Thin in the body and as dry as a bushfire in the finish. Lots of fruit upfront but little in the way of a finish. Heavily carbonated. Better than I expected but I can’t think of a reason to choose this over the Sparkling Ale or Pale Ale. SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2004
Wow, no head. Highly effervescent. Hint of flat cardboardy malt. Quite a strong honey in the intial flavour. Boring palate with some carbonic acid finish. meh. Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2004
Yellow colouring with a small disappearing head. Very dry, bland and lacks a bite, but has a hint of sweetness and is clean and crisp. I’ll pass on this one in the future though. mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2004
Toasty with some other aroma I can’t quite describe, maybe raw green beans. There’s actually a bit of malt in there but there’s quite a significant astringency in the finish. I was never going to love this beer but it ain’t terrible. bluevegie (3938) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 29, 2004
Harsh yeast aroma?, orange colour with a compact lasting head. Not much taste, dry but hardly any other flavours maybe some ginger.
