A new member of the Coopers family – XPA

The haze

Your correspondent’s favourite colour is purple. So I was absolutely intrigued to see a new Coopers Tap head that is a beautiful shade of purple. I was just hoping that the beer was good. Your correspondent’s go to beer is normally the Coopers Green – aka the Pale Ale. That might change. Coopers XPA is a terrific beer that exhibits some typical Cooper’s characteristics. It is beautiful looking beer. It has a deeper hue than the Pale, but retains that wonderful Coopers haze. There’s an effervescent mouth feel. They’ve hopped it up, but there’s still a yeasty edge that I’ve loved about the Pale. Good addition to the family. Hope I make to Adelaide Airport soon to buy the shirt.
