Coopers Lager Success!

Here is an update on the Cooper's Lager I brewed and kegged:

I brewed this beer using an ale yeast and 1kg of brew enhancer 1.  I was a bit worried about it not being rich enough.

I had tasted it on Sunday after force carbonating it (we thought) and it seemed sweet, not cidery but sweet and I was a little dissapointed.

But then Tuesday night I tried a growler of this lager and it was much more carbonated!  The carbonation added a sort of salty taste (without salt, think seltzer water) which counteracted the sweetness and hey I had a pretty good beer!  Richer than most American lagers and "quaffable".

I'm quite happy with it and it seems like it would be a good hot weather beer.  I will brew this again.
