Pours a golden hue of orange with a slight note of mud in there - upon closer inspection, there was some peanut butter yeast as well as stunning precipitations of protein that clung to the readily disipating head of this wonderous brew.
Reminisent of the boot of my old Datsun - hints of old Carpet with the metallic tang of Rust. The Malt had aged spectacularily into the smoothest perceivable sweetness that coopers has been famous for. A floral hint of Black Wattle rounded out the nose of this drink.
As with the aroma - rusty Datsun Boot was dominant along with a subtle hint of Marmite (not to be confused with Vegemite of course) with a dry sour finish.

Just a really good beer. A lot of pale ales have a bitter beer taste to them for me. But this beer was very smooth and has a fruity type flavor. Would recommend to all garygary99 (21) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2001

Excellent taste and finish. Difficult to locate, but worth the trouble to do so. JonBot99 (1) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2001 does not count
An excellent ale and a fine example of the Coopers brewing abilities. When bottled a nice yeast residue is left and when mixed throughout the bottle a nice body and flavour is found. When served on tap, the pub’s lines and how they are cleaned can change the falvour. Not quite as bitter as the bottle variety of pale ale but it is definately unsurpassable for its smoothness and robust taste. Definately worth trying.

Easy to drink, not too yeasty... for people who actually know something about beer. thebaron99 (110) - Royston Park SA, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2002
Re rate Oct 2001; cellered 10 months, better than fresh. The sweetness is perfect, fruity oakness is deep and clean. Creamy head from start to finish.Cloudy with a light change. Beautiful fruity ale. Hints of pineapple and cherry. Complex flavour is clean and full. Woodiness is strong but not too raspy. Suffers occasional batch inconsistancies: best on tap or best in longneck 750mls. Encore.

This is what Bass should taste like (i.e. probably what it tasted like in the good old Victorian era.)
