Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 185: 62 Pilsner

Coopers 62 Pilsner

Pours a crystal clear. light straw colour. The head is medium sized and thick. A lot of carbonation visible in the glass.

First sip: A lot of grain malt and... something else? It's a bit sour but not citrus. Some hops up front but does not linger. Actually, nothing seems to linger, all the flavours wash away. Mouth feel is light and a bit watery, with a light carbonation tingle on the tongue.

This is highly drinkable and goes down easily, but it's not interesting. I'd hardly call it a pilsner - more like a lager. Which is a shame because Coopers makes really nice lagers much better than this. As a pils, this is so thin a mild cheese easily overwhelms it. Very disappointing.
