Grim Reaper's Eulogy

A thick fistful of brown glass surrounds this pale ale from down under. The Aussies are a hard chargin', hard fightin' and likely a hard drinkin' bunch. This stump of a bottle rests nicely in my bony paw.

These pale ales are naturally concocted with no preservatives and are also bottle conditioned. They suggest that you gently roll the bottle about three rotations before opening and enjoying, to swirl any yeast sediment caused form upright storage. It's a pale ale like no other that you might be used to drinking. It looks and drinks more like an average American yellow lager. But with a bit more clean clear flavor of grain and hops. All in all it's pretty good turps and goes well with just about any kind of tucker.

These blokes don't only make some good beer, but they can also help you make it. Coopers is a standard for home brewing, selling full kits and after-market supplies to assist the home brewer in their quest to quench a thirst the size of the Aussie Outback. And they have a long tradition of brewing, dating back to 1862.

Check out the bearded gentleman that greets you at their website, then get some, mate!
