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.

Interesting beer that begs the question, why is it bottle conditioned? A light corn hop aroma and taste. Decent but not worth seeking out.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Bottle best before 11/02/05. Cloudy orange, with a brief head, which completely disappeared. Sweet and malty aroma with some fruit. Flavour is fruity and malty. Slight bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, but somewhat disappointing on the palate.

Tejas (976) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Drinkable slightly better than average beer. Pretty well balanced too. Don’t know if I’d buy it again but I also wouldn’t talk poorly about it.

vanvenlo (1773) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
7 May 2004 - Sampled AIBA 2004 - Slight fruity spiced aroma. White head, Nice cloudy look, brown and thick lacing. Fizzy but not cidery, light body, and taste doesn’t linger. Doesn’t inspire but provides pleasant relief.

Bottle. Small sized white head and fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Fast rising carbonation, hazy, some yeast nd a pale yellow hue. Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet and malty flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Next to no lacing on the sides of my glass.

thedm (5667) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2004
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was very hazy with suspended bubbles and yeast floating in it and a dark yellow orange color. The aroma was mildly doughy and malty and the mouth feel was

UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 Pours a real hazy beige, with tons of stuff floating in the glass. Smells kind of fruity. Has a little sweetness in the taste. Aftertaste is a little bitter.

375ml iightweight brown bottle. B/fermented. Poured a cloudy brown with white head. Peach aroma. Sweet citrus flavour with toffe notes & not very subtle alcohol. Bitter grapefruit finish. Its alright but I wouldn’t rush out to grab another.

A very drinkable golden ale. Fruity aroma and flavour, and with a slightly bitter hoppy finish. Nice in the summertime, but quickly forgotten though.
