COOPERS CELEBRATION ALE

Cooper's Celebration Ale. Released in 2012 to mark Cooper’s 150th anniversary, Coopers fans were very excited at the prospect of a new brew.

They promised a beer that would have that unique Coopers flavour but with a hop twist. It would include three different hops varieties – Centennial from the USA, Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand and Pride of Ringwood from Australia.

It looks like a slightly darker version of the Coopers Sparkling Ale. Similar mouthfeel and bready yeast flavour to the other Coopers brews. Although this one seems a little more crisp, malt driven and there is less fruity yeast flavour. At 5.2% ABV it’s in-between the Pale Ale (4.5%) and the Sparkling Ale (5.8%).

The overall taste is undeniably true to the Coopers style. However, it doesn’t live up to legacy of the Pale Ale or Sparkling Ale. It’s not a bad beer, but they could have made something a lot better for such a milestone.
