I'm pretty new at homebrewing (batch #5 brewing now) and the Coopers Real Ale is the best thing I've found so far.

I use a can of Coopers
3# Light Hopped DME
1oz Liberty Hops (3aau) at 10min

Let it sit in the bucket for 2 weeks, and bottle condition for 4, and I'd put it up against any specialty beer I can get at my favorite party store.

Thanks for the info, appreciate your insight since you have made the coopers before.

Im one of those Canadian canned kit brewers. Ive made about a dozen coopers real ale kits. Usually for those ones I add about half malt extract and half liquid brewing sugar (1.5 to 2 LBS each) usually makes a pretty good brew. Some people say that using just sugar with these kits will cause a cider taste but I have made some cooper draft kits with 3LBS of glucose and it has produced a nice light tasty beer. Im not sure if it has proper balances or proper body but I find it tastes pretty darn good. Alost all the toher canned kits i use a combination of malt extract and sugar - hope that helps!
