Beer review — Schloss, Wernesgrüner & Cooper’s

Schloss Pils 330ml 6-pack $11.99. Wernesgrüner Pils 335ml 6-pack $11.99
These Aldi imports sit squarely in the German Pilsen-style mould – bright, light golden lagers with dry finish and pronounced hop bitterness. The Schloss is a little darker in colour and not as stunningly fresh as the Wernesgrüner. Both offer outstanding value for money and were purchased at Aldi, Holt.

Cooper’s Extra Stout 375ml about $3.30
The recent cool nights prompted a visit to this warming old friend — a beautifully fresh and balanced beer. It’s deeply coloured, with persistent, creamy tan-coloured foam and opulent, malty, fruity, roast coffee aroma and flavours – finishing dry and refreshingly bitter. It’s bottle conditioned and therefore carries a natural yeast sediment.
