As a wee lad, I used to greedily devour Wheaties for breakfast, thinking it would impart some of its championship qualities upon me. So it was with a wee bit of nostalgia that I sipped upon Australia’s Coopers Vintage Ale. This beer poured with a medium head which slowly dissipated to produce a caramel colored cloudy body that gave off a pleasant malty smell. With a stiff 7.5% alcohol content, the taste combines wheat and barley to produce something akin to eating Wheaties with honey poured over them. Amazingly, the taste works! The finish is subtly sweet leaving you looking forward to another sip.
All in all, this is an interesting beer, worthy of a tasting, especially if you consider yourself a champion.
