one of the better beer in Australia...good taste and suited for drinking on a week day. neutral but enjoyable.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 I was quite suprised when I found one of these. I had personally never heard of it until I found it in the liquor store. Reminded me of many European style lagers. Quite a good smooth flavour, but doesn’t have the typical Coopers charm. Not bad by any means, but Coopers have many other fine beers to choose from.

Not so good tasting beer, drunk on bottle in Belgium, but know him also from oversees.

A richer, more full bodied beer than the lager. More of a sweet finish with a nice bready aroma. A healthy dose of yeast in the bottle was not settled so I got a good bit of it in my glass, adding to the yeasty bite. Very small head with no real staying power and low carbonation overall. Good hopping for the malt level.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 The word "premium" is bandied about too freely in the Australian beer market. It’s often a clue that what’s in the bottle is aimed at the sort of drinker who equates price with quality. (Take a bow anyone who regularly shells out for Boags Premium or Crown Lager.) Be nice to think Coopers was above this but they’re in expansion mode and I guess every dollar counts. It poured an amber colour with a thin, disappearing head. The nose is light and malty, which translates to the flavour. However, there are also some unpleasant chalky notes there. All the more disappointing because this brewer makes some of Australia’s best ales. (Bottle)

Amber in colouring with a thin small head. Malty, grainy, roasted-type of aroma. A bit disappointed as I expected a bit more of a bite from this Ale - but it is still easy to drink and worth a try. Still not bad.

As a massive coopers fan i wasnt overly impressed by this. Not much character to help you remember it by. doesnt have the natural earthy feel of the pale or the dark but still finds it way down.

Bottled, in sunny Sydney. Honey, amber coloured beer. With a thin, course white head. Sweet malt aroma that is translated completely through to the flavour. Moderate bitter structure that only become apparent after the sweet malts have disappeared.

on of the lesser quality beers of the coopers range, I think it's one of the products thought up by their marketers not their brewers.

the good thing with coopers is that whatever they try tomake you know they aren't going to totally stuff it up. this has a weird freshly-buttered toast aroma and drifts off into a sea of competence
