Sunday Night Suds - Coopers Lager

Tonight's Sunday Night Suds looks at another of the great beers produced by the Coopers Brewery of Australia - Coopers Premium Lager.

I picked this beer up at American Beer on Court Street in Cobble Hill Brooklyn. Its a great beer store with a superior selection and staff who not only know what is in stock, but also know where the beers can be found in the store. You do pay a little more, but you really can't find a better combination of selection and service.

An interesting note about this beer is that as with most of the recent Coopers brews that are being imported into the US, the Coopers Premium Lager bears the Kosher Australia certification mark, along with the legend (in Hebrew) Kosher Parve L'Mehadrin. I find it difficult to resist trying beers that are labeled this way (although I was able to hold back from buying a sixer of the Extra Strong Vintage Ale which goes for a jaw dropping $23 a six pack).

The Coopers Lager was a typical lager as it poured a bright yellow color and had typical lager flavor and smell, albeit somewhat on the lighter side for alcohol taste. Although the website indicates that the beer is 5 % abv, it seemed to me to be a bit lighter than that. Since, I have no way to verify the alcohol content, I will have to trust them. Still, if you have tried it and agree with me, post a comment on the blog and let me know what you think.

Coopers Premium Lager is an excellent companion to most dishes as the lager flavor will not drown out your food. Of course, you could just have it by itself after a long day at work.

Coopers Premium Lager is under the kashruth supervision of Kosher Australia. For the experts take on the Premium Lager, please click here .

As always, please remember to drink responsibly and to never waste good beer unless there is no designated driver.
