Coopers Original Pale Ale

Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, $4.75.

Unusual this, and fairly average to boot. Pours like an unfiltered, bottle fermented wheat, tasted like a sour lager, calls itself a Pale Ale, what gives??

I usually like the yeast sediment to be added to my glass with the beer, but on this ocassion I wish I hadn’t. Rather than getting an attractive, classic cloudy look, I got a nasty, murky pond water effect. Didn’t look good at all.

The smell was lemony, almost to the point of seeming artificial and the initial tastes were very sour. This evened out a little half way down the beer, but the damage was done. Some very strong mixed flavors that I didn’t care for, including more citrus and then a mild, bitter, hop finish.

A very odd collection of flavors and senses. Probably won’t bother again anytime soon.
