Coopers seem to be the pick of the bunch as far as 40pint one-can kits go. They get a lot of good press and rightly so in my opinion. I brewed this one as the tin suggested with 500g spray malt and 300g dextrose and it, as is common with coopers beers, went off like a rocket. Well more like a gooey volcano actually. Don't brew it on your shag-pile! The end product is a nice, well balanced, if a little thin, pale ale which could do with a bit more hoppiness if truth be told. Perfectly drinkable in it's own right, I think some little tweaks would make this a really very good beer. Maybe a dry hopping and no sugar but all DME, maybe a full kilo to give it a bit more ooomph... In summary, a perfectly decent pint as is but with the potential to be the base for something really quite nice.
