COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coopers Sparkling Ale is brewed naturally by the centuries-old top fermentation method just as it was in the beginning by Thomas Cooper. This beer displays a solid head and a distinctive, full-bodied flavour enhanced by a soft, fruity character and the sediment which gives it a cloudy appearance.

GlassBrass440 (276) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2015
Pours a hazy gold with no head. Sweet malt aromas with hints of honey. Sweet & sour malt flavours with a solid bitterness and some astringency in the finish. Full bodied and spritely carbonation.

330ml bottle from a fathers day selection, served cold, poured carefully to retain the sediment in the bottle. Hazy amber with no head. Fruity biscuit aroma. More of the hefeweizen vibe that came with it’s Pale Ale brother, but this is more robust; Almost Belgian, if lacking spicy notes. Bubblegum just floated past, increasing the hefeweizen resemblance. Quite full bodied. My second odd-but-good-but-not-great experience from this brewery. A million times better than Fosters

jookos (3373) - FINLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle. Deep golden clear. Malty, slight cream malty, honey corn nose. Med bodied, bit murky malty, slight old leafy I like the soft moutfeel, the malty feeling, but flavour-wise it’s a bit boring.

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada clara, con algo de sedimento. Abundante espuma. Aroma malteado y ligeramente cítrico. Carbónica como anuncia el nombre. Cuerpo moderado. Frutal con el alcohol presente, y también malteada semidulce. Final ligeramente herbal. Buena y equilibrada.

375ml bottle. Poured unclear copper color with a thin white head. Minerally, earthy notes, mild fruitiness in aroma. Flavor has yeast, red berries, earthy notes. Lots of sediment. Belgian yeasty notes in finish. meh.

Homebrewilly (8) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 1, 2015 does not count
It is sparkling but it’s also gross. Pours pale copper with champagne like bubbles. Smells like something is wrong. Tastes like ethanol, nail polish remover, and bandaids. My guess is that they used way too much white sugar in this beer. It’s not a very strong beer but it tastes like rubbing alcohol. I can’t believe they sell home-brew kits for this stuff. I’d rather drink anything else than this!

thellgren (431) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2015
0.375 l bottle from Alko. Golden cloudy appearance, with almost no head at all but lots of carbonation and bubbles, hence the name Sparkling Ale. Taste has malts and hops and something else... maybe the yeast in the bottle? Pour this thing carefully, since there is lots of sediment in the bottom of the bottle.
