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.

Almost as tart and fruity as a wheat beer - lively, goes brilliantly with spicy food.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 Genuine quality beer just like all the coopers range. Full flavour and fruity like a good ale, quite strong and ovepowering however. Has a cloudy appearance but tastes cleaner than it looks. Has a very favourable bitter finish. Needs just a little more malt.

Ungstrup (29956) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
An unclear orange beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is faintly malty. The flavor is fresh, malty and feels sparkling on the tongue. Not a special beer - but maybe my hopes were too high after reading Michael Jacksons recommendation.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2003
I think I got an old batch. It was cloudy and fruity, but overly sedimented with large floating chunks, and it has that "old beer" character ... bit more yeasty and citric than you'd expect. I'd give this another chance if I can find a new pack.

Dominant yeasty and tangy harsh flavour, dry hop bitterness.Un-inspiring.

drywallman (334) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2003
This was another beer from the Christmas pack I received, but it appears to have aged well; with the continued bottle conditioning from the yeast left in. It had a quickly disappearing head, good moderate carbonation, dark golden color, with sediment foating around. It had a clean 'sparkling' taste, some apple and pear overtones, and a good clean hop finish. I was surprised by it's quality.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Browny golden colour, light and not lasting head, tastes of banana, green apple and vanilla.

presario (4729) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2003
Fairly mild aroma. Light foamy head. Good carbonization. Slightly cloudy with small yeast particles. Dark straw colour. Sparkling is a good description of the mouth feel. An almost Belgian mouth feel. Very light and zesty with minimal aftertaste. No strong hop presence.

jercraigs (8106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
Toronto Festival of Beer 2001 - Slightly bitter finish, this is a flavourful and tasty beer. Very refreshing with a nice hop finish.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 small head and a little bit of a fuzzy feeling. Sharp and crisp and tart in a way. Maybe a little too wheaty for my tastes. But not bad.
