Straw color with a tall, bubbly off-white head. Dry grain and light floral hops aromas. For boasting all malt, they sure don’t let the flavors come out. Flour past flavors along with a a nondescript hops flavor, perhaps a bit herbal if anything. LIght sweetness in the finish followed by a rather dull bitterness that seems to coat the mouth. a touch of husky grains long into the linger. Nothing to get excited about.

Bottle from Aussie pal. Pours a clear pale yellow colour with a medium white head. Malt aroma with raisons? Flavor is average pale lager with a hint of hops. jwdevalue (158) - Neptune, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2007
This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Typical light lager. Pale pour, little mouth feel. Slight bitterness. Medium caramel malt flavor. JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle at an Outback. Golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet with some light malts and a bit of hop bitterness. Flavor had some solid malt and decent hop flavor - kind of a lighter Sam Adams Premium Lager. Not bad.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Any lager with “premium” on the label I get very skeptical….Golden Anniversary is a premium lager (not that there is anything wrong with that). I got introduced to Coopers’ products recently and enjoy them, so I was eager to try their “real Australian lager.” It pours a pale golden with a beautiful picture perfect white head; it looks great in a dimple glass. It is a all malt lager that tastes similar to Victory’s Lager (with a little less kick in the back of the throat). Light carbonation, slightly sweet grainy malt notes. A very easy to drink; a decent lager. Buy a six pack or case to surprise some Molson drinkers. DuffMan (10610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2007
So I guess Cooper’s has finally bent the knee to the pressures of the mass market. This is average pale lager fare all the way, albeit clean in the ingredients and palate. littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Mostly malts with a nice bitter finish. Slight chemical taste to it, but overall not too bad.
