Artisan Reserve – Thomas Cooper’s Selection (AUS)

‘Unpasteurised beer’? Whatever next, permeate-free lager?

Tommy Cooper has come up with just that, an unpasteurised pilsner …… just like that!  Golden straw in colour, it has good meaty bubbles but lacks the sediment you expect with a Cooper’s brew. For a lager, it has some depth, malt and a slight hint of Wax Jambu. Clean and fresh but hardly earth shattering,  and at $20 for a 6-pack, this Artisan ale can stay on the reserve’s bench.

On a more interesting note, there was an eclipse of the the moon this evening , which was pretty cool.

Lunar eclipse ... pretty cool huh?

In honour of this evening lunacy, here’s Echo and the Bunnymen with   ‘Killing Moon’
