Some of the so called "boutique' beer is very good here. But the main lager brewers are just thirst quenchers, not drunk for the taste. Most Aussie beer is designed to be nearly frozen before pouring down the less than discerning gullet.

Coops your nick is named after my fave, the Sparkling Ale variety.

Needle nardle noo, and indeed forsooth!

I am a James Squire man if we are talking Aussie beer, but agree, Cooper's has some good stuff. Just don't give me dry, low carb, or blonde. And offer me light on risk of death.

Coops.

Well Zee the test of rum quality comes the morning after. If your tongue feels like it needs a shave you know it was the cheap stuff . . . . . . . . either that or some dastardly brigand has spiked your rum with vegemite.
