Tasting Notes from Coopers
Coopers Vintage Ale 2017 is distinguished by its crimson-red colour and full-bodied taste; rich in malt, honey and dry nutty characters, the ale has evolved with the inclusion of a special blend of caramalt. The caramalt contributes well to the balance of bold malt flavours and the softness of a fine and creamy head.
In keeping with its reputation of being bold and robust, this year’s Vintage Ale includes a new combination of bittering and aromatic hop varieties, Denali and Calypso, which deliver a delicate spectrum of fruity aromas. Distinct pineapple and pear characters are a feature alongside pine and citrus notes. This Vintage finishes with a respectable level of bitterness, with an IBU of 50, which integrates well with the fruity, estery flavour of the beer.
