The ale for every occasion with its fruity and floral character, balanced with a crisp bitterness, Coopers Pale ale has a compelling flavour which is perfect for any occasion.
Naturally fermented in the “Burton-upon-Trent” style, a secondary fermentation creates the trademark sediment that gives “Pale” its fine cloudy appearance.
