The only beer I really buy these days is Coopers Sparkling Ale, unless my brothers drinking it, since he hates it... lol.
Its an acquired taste, I suppose. But I love it and all the other popular Aussie beers (think Budweiser but generally more bitter) just taste watered
down to me now.
They leave a little yeast in the brew to give it a distinct taste. So you have to roll the beer before you open it to get the full flavour, which in
my opinion is a very mild Vegemite taste... its an absolutely beautiful and refreshing brew to crack open after a hard days work, imo.
Its 5.8%, which means its expensive in Australia because of the alcohol tax. Its basically just one big ankle grab buying beer that's over 5% here.
But what are ya gonna do? If you want it you have to pay what it costs... whether its blatant extortion or not.
Anyway... I've read around on forums that its actually available (or at least has been) in the US and UK, reasonably priced too.
