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.

Pours nicely: golden, and cloudy with a little head. Aroma is somewhat sweet. Tastes very spritzy and carbonated, but overall quite refreshing.

philb (20) - Wangaratta, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2003
Nice yeasty (subtle) aroma without too much 'mash'. Very cloudy amber/orange appearance with quickly vanishing head and bubbles. Smooth, somewhat boring taste with a very malty aftertaste which has a 'grainy' overtone. Fairly bland from what I expected.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2003
appley aroma, cloudy orange with lots of tiny sediment, soft peachy flavors and yeastiness with some lingering hoppiness

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2003
Cloudy with little chunks of yeast, hardly any head. Orange, hops and a slight mustard aroma. Indeed sprakling with a good lacing. Hoppy, just a bit yeasty flavor with apple. Very refreshing, maybe just a bit thin, but with a fairly long hoppy finish. Lovely beer from down under.

I think the advertising was that this beer is 'cloudy but fine'. At least with this appearance we know that there is a good shot of residual yeast in the bottle that enables this beer to be kept like wine for a long time in the cellar. The ale characters of bananas, apples and slight cloveiness comes out, but bitterness is medium with little aroma. While it is called sparkling let the bubbles subside for a few minutes so it can be drunk without too much gas and at a more ambient temperature. I hadn't tasted this beer for two years while being overseas but when I had it on return it was a happy reunion with a trusted friend.

Syrupy looking blonde beer with a fruity/lightly hopped aroma. The flavour is lightly hopped and slightly watery. A good semi-sweet lightly hopped ale.

It's weird. Reminds me of a cross between fake-champange-sparkling-grape-juice and a soft drink trying to mask itself as an ale. Still, it is rather refreshing but only in small doses.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2003
Bottle. Poured correctly this is a good looking beer. Golden honey colour with solid beading head. Slightly sweet with good body texture. I like the malt and yeast combo on the taste. Has a long palate that you can savour. Drinks well for a while but it's best to get them as fresh a possible.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2003
A nice change of pace. Bready ale aroma. Hazy bubbly beer, as the name suggests. A very clean-drinking beer. A little fruity, champagne-y. Clean finish.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2003
Cloudy golden amber. Pear, apple, banana malt nose. Small sticky head. Lots of carbonation. Light fruit, apples. Pale malts, yeast is real nice, finishes dry and clean. Very refreshing, drinkable brew. Not too shabby.
