How was the palate prepared? Coopers Pale Ale

First sip mental image: Beer garden

Very light in colour compared to other pales ales. Straw yellow with slight cloudiness. The beer is bottle fermented however there wasn’t a significant amount of sediment evident during the pour. The light head disappeared quite quickly

How did it taste? 
First sip smacked of honey flavours with citrus overtones from the hops (I’m guessing Amarillo as the website or bottle doesn’t specify?). Mouthfeel is light to medium and a little watery. After the first few sips the flavours on the palette soften and the beer morphs into a softer styled citrusy pale ale.  

Suggested accompanying food? 
Battered fish and chips, with a side salad lightly seasoned in vinegar, olive oil and lemon.

Under what circumstances would I drink a six pack? 
Lunch, sitting outside in the sun, on a warm Spring day, relaxing with friends and enjoying them straight off the ice… 

Special note: Wilde pale ale has been brewed with grains that do not contain gluten – website doesn’t give away what those grains are? Rice perhaps? A good beer to consider if you are gluten intolerant or Coeliac.
