As revealed last month, Coopers has launched a new ‘purple’ beer -- and now FIVEaa Breakfast’s David Penberthy has tried it and offered his thoughts:

“Coopers has just brought out a new version of pale ale called XPA - extra pale ale,” Penbo said on Thursday. “It’s not in stores yet but it’s on tap in the pubs.”

“It’s purple. We had a taste and it’s terrific. It’s stronger than the green. It’s halfway between a pale ale and an Indian pale ale but it’s not like one of those punch in the head IPAs that you get and you have half a pint and you need a bit of a lie down.

“It’s not massively heavy. It’s still got that nice floral sort of citrusy taste that you associate with the Coopers pale ales but it’s nowhere near as massive.”
