A small backstory: I moved to Adelaide in March of 2011 and discovered a number of new beers. This beer, made by Coopers, was a slow grower on me. The beer contains an unusual 'sediment', before twisting the cap off, it is common practise in hotels (pubs) in Australia to roll the stubby on its' side to distribute the sediment ergo enhancing the drinking experience. It may take a while to really become a favourite or you may take to it instantly. For me, it was unlike anything I had really experienced before but now is a real favourite of mine.
Anyway, my uncle visited for a number of weeks in 2013 and I gave him a mini tour of the vast variety of beers in Australia. We would spend hours playing backgammon (a favourite game for many years with an annual tally being kept and a sort of 'ashes' style competition has been borne!). Suffice to say, my uncle is now firmly into the Paleys and this is the tipple of choice.
From returning to the UK, he had a pretty s***ty time of it, so I decided I would try and bring a smile to his face with a small present. The present ofcourse was this.
It isn't for everyone, but it might grow on you as it did with me, becoming a real tradition with my uncle and I. You cannot go wrong with the Coopers beers. There is a Celebration which is a fine ale also, Sparkling Ale which packs a hefty punch (close to 6% in volume, with a velvet texture and fine taste) but for me, the 'green label' is my pick.
