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.

DanielBrown (4265) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2004
Bottle from Safeway, Rubery, Birmingham. After pouring most of this, I read the bottle which suggested care was needed to avoid disturbing the sediment - doh! Any way, after leaving the poured drink for about 15 mins, I could see a lot of the small particles congregated at the bottom, and set off on the rate. Looks just like a Hefeweizen, but with a smaller, snowy white head. Retains a very lagery taste, but with extra lemon and milkiness. Not as dramatic as I expected. Soft in the beginning, adding some clarity in the middle, before a slightly grainy, dryish finish. A slight let down.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy golden color with a small head. Floral bouquet with light hoppy flavor.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2004
Bottled. Quite disappointing. Little aroma and little flavour of any character. Cloudy orange colour. The beer is clean and has a reasonable alcohol taste, but there just is not enough character and it is almost too safe.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2004
cloudy, pale gold color, short head, decent hops, fruity, pears-oranges, a toasty-maltiness; bubbly with a fruity toasty malt mix, decent hop flavor, yeasty, smooth and refreshing, not too rich or thick, a great refresher, acidic with a light sourness

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - APR 8, 2004
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 (1448) - 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.
