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.

Very mild, not much flavor to speak of. Hints of roasted malt, maybe a slight, sweet fruit flavor.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2004
Deep golden/pale amber colour with a cloudy appearance. Nice aroma with a fruity acidity (apples, peach). Flavour is malty and somewhat fruity (banana) ending in a refreshing finish. Not a great beer but by far the best Australian beer, I have sampled so far. Note: Pouring the entire beer seems advisable.

light fruit aroma, very cloudy, malt yeasty taste,seems somewhat light and simple. A thirst quencher type

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2004 Is it stale? Current bottle poured and there are tiny round balls of sediment floating in the glass. Kind of cute, but kind of a jello look to it. Still, a nice aroma with a trace of fruitiness and a smooth, refreshing taste. Nice on a hot day, but watch for the floaters.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2004
Golden color, lots of "floaties" with darker sediment settling on the bottom of the glass. Soft and flowery with a light rounded malty taste. Crisp on the palate.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2004
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.

hershiser2 (1447) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2004
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.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2004
Aroma has hops and fresh cut grass. Cloudy orange. Some fruit followed by quite a nice long bitter. An okay beer.

aracauna (3280) - Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2004
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
