Review – Coopers Brewery Orig. Pale Ale
TheFullPint.com encourages you to write about your favorite beer. Whether it is a traditional review, or a fun article, we want to make you an Internet Beer Superstar.
Found: Cost Plus World Market in a six pack
Tasted: At home, room temperature pint glass, 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Golden, yet cloudy with sentiment floating in from the bottle (bottle fermented), good foam top with a fruity smell.
Aroma: Fruity and hoppy, very light. Doesn’t overpower you, but gives you a hint at what you are about to taste.
Taste: Smooth, fruity and hoppy with a little bit of an aftertaste, not a bad one. Hits the back of your throat like silk, almost like a blonde ale. Not your IPA or your American Pale Ale, this PA is light and smooth to taste. I honestly can’t compare it to another American standard or microbrew on the market today. That’s a good thing…
Drinkability: Easy. Would be absolutely perfect for hot days to cool you off and keep your throat from going bone dry. Unconsciously, I finished off my first pint very quickly and needed a second one to finish this review. At 4.5% alc/vol, that can be dangerous… if you are light on your beer.
With this beer and Foster’s marketing, Coopers could be the Australian beer you’d think of first. Am I a fan? After one-plus six pack, yes. The price is steep – $9 for a sixer at Cost Plus World Market – but I picked up another sixer of this and a sixer of Coopers Dark Ale. Can’t wait to get that sixer cold and ready to drink.
As I said before, this isn’t your typical PA. It is more like a blonde ale in its appearance and drinkability, but that isn’t a deterrent. If I can find this at a cheaper price, I can easily slide this into my beer rotation. Highly recommended. 4/5

i’m in sydney now and i’m glad to see it’s available in LA. love it. there’s green/red label cooper’s. red is sparkling too bad some bar wouldn’t get it by the keg, it like all beers taste better. BTW, it’s 11bucks a six-pack here in sydney.
