Coopers brewery sparkling ale


About time I tried something different. So found this in a local store and thought, hmmm, Australians don’t do many ales surely. They’re all lager.

This is a small bottle (375ml) picking a fight with its 5.8% content. It’s pretty pale in colour but extremely cloudy, with a good head which quickly disappears. I have high hopes (or am I just thirsty)

It’s standard. Plain. Refreshing. A bit citrusy. Not sure I would call it an ale, but a rounded lager. It would rate very highly as a lager.

There’s not much in a way of flavour but it would certainly do in a hot summers day picnic.

Okay I say. But that’s it.
