Ooooh! Lagavulin 16yr. My personal favourite. Though Bruichladdich ain't a bad drop either, just to second whoever it was already mentioned it.

Caol Ila, Another Islay is also a good one, or Ardbeg for something very different...(Laphroaig being one of the classics, of course.... Barely worth bringing up at this point)

I haven't had a beer all week (being good), but currently downing a few Coopers Pale Ale.

Methinks Coopers is becoming the SNA beer of choice! :D

no - as always - my breviety clouds my meaning (a fault of mine)

Murrays make GREAT beer.

the best stout, however - is owned by Fosters (Sheaf)

Oh yes please this stinking HOT weather is the pits.

Only had 2 Coopers Milds today while preparing and cooking a Pizza.

I think the drinking all night on NYE is past me:confused: But I toast you all a Happy new Year anyway.

Strange, but i have found through a dedicated, self punishing and long trial that The Coopers Milds taste much better from the can than the glass Stubbie. I find the taste of the can lighter and easier to adapt to, where the Stubbies have a slight 'cringe' effect until you have a couple.

"Why is it so?" as one famous fella once asked?

I have no answer to that. I have found that any beer I have tried has always tasted better out of a glass than a can or bottle, at least to me. That's certainly the case with Cooper's Pale Ale and Sparkling Ale (red label, my favourite). Haven't really put Coopers Mild to the test though, so must do that.

I think its to do with the bubbles. When you drink from a can or bottle, the beer starts de-gassing as you drink it, while in a glass it has a chance to begin the de-gassing process before you sip. I think that affects the taste.

That's one I haven't tried. Must seek it out.

I also only drank from a glass or stubbie once, but it's got me stuffed why the can of Mild is better. Had ruralrat over the other day and we poured our canned milds into frosty cold tall glasses and I tell you what, it was one of the best I've ever had including full strenghts that I once drank. Very cloudy beer like the Pale Ales are but without the kick.

I can feel a COOPERS coming on soon.

Grumpy, although I've given up the piss, the Coopers Mild is has recently become my favourite beer. Even better than the Green and the Red.

Hope it was voluntary and not permanent.

Anyone wanting to try the MILD, try both the can and the bottle, you will be surprised.

I've never seen Coopers in a can. Is it only available in SA I wonder?
