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.

Appearance is somewhat interesting. Lots of floaties in a pleasent golden color with a rapidly fading egg white head. Aroma is flowery with light malt and a bit of yeast. Flavor is lightly hoppy with a nice spicy dry finish. Pretty tasty.

Clopudy golden with a small head. Sour banana and grassiness in the nose; Bitter and coppery in the mouth, with no distinct flavors jumping out. Mouth is nice, crisp, and bubbly.

Aroma has hops and fresh cut grass. Cloudy orange. Some fruit followed by quite a nice long bitter. An okay beer.

This is actually a pretty tasty light ale. Light and a little on the spritzy side. Pours a bit cloudy since this apparently isn't a filtered beer. Nice, soft, spring-like fruitiness reminding me mostly of melons an pears. If it was a little cheaper, I'd consider this a great summer beer as it's got a little taste, but is nice and crisp.

Glad to see there is some australian breweries left that dont beleive in cold filtration. A cloudy appearance but strong taste and high alcohol content make this a quality beer

I tasted this out of a bottle that might have had some age on it - over a year old at least. Not much nose at all, if any. Little or no head retention. Reminded me of an American megabrew in that regard. Taste wasn't ay all unpleasant. I enjoyed it more the farther along we went. An Aussie lawnmower beer maybe? I did like the flavor.

Very malty and also some nice sweetness from this cloudy offering. Very nice overall with some fruity flavour and nice hops. I found that it was hard to drink more than a couple at a time because I found it a tad heavy. Still, overall very nice.

Amber coloured. Lots of chunks in it. Quite thin and boring. Too much carbonation.

Nearly no head... Very fruity aroma... Pretty much a standard beer... Easy to enjoy on a hot summers day

Bloody lovely, If someone wants to know what Australian beer tastes like, give them one of these, but not too cold. Naturally cloudy with tasty yeast surprises at the bottom, it's hearty without the associated pain. Spanner.
