Coopers launches 2016 Vintage Ale

The ale features the use of Astra, Melba, Northern Brewer, Styrian Goldings and Cascade hops, which were carefully chosen to ensure a strong balance, depth of flavour and delicate aroma notes.

The ale has also been seeded with live yeast for bottle conditioning and to enhance the longevity of the beer, which will change over time as the bitterness slowly mellows and rich, sweet caramel-like characters emerge.

Coopers Sales and Marketing Director Cam Pearce says it is one of the few beers designed to age and is unique in the Australian beer market.

“Many shrewd drinkers purchase a carton to enjoy while the product is young and another which can be carefully cellared and consumed gradually to enjoy the changes this beer experiences over the years,” he said.

The ale maintains the bitterness of previous years at 60IBU and an alcohol level of 7.5% ABV.
