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.

God drinks this beer. Or rather he would, if he were in Adelaide South Australia in the summer. Itís a good first quencher, and has a refleshingly raw taste about it. Somehow reminds me of rammed earth and corrogated iron, outback fences strung up with wire. It tastes very Australian.

Disappointing. Dark honey color, thin head, hazy with yeast settling out to the bottom (some still left in bottle as well). Mild aroma, hint of fruit (apple and pear). A mistake to drink this too cold--first mouthful was unpleasant, settling down a bit later on as it warmed to produce some Belgian-like flavors. Moderate maltiness, some hints of alcohol and grape, but let down by a thin body and curious bitterness in the finish.

ReRate; This is my session beer and I can tell you that since Coopers left leafy Leabrook, (Upper Kensington) to new premises in the industrial wasteland of Regency Park, the flavour has changed. Itís still fruity and delicious, slightly sour pinapple/passionfuit/citrus and hints of oak and pine. More Hefe style than Blonde but as about as thick as your average Blonde (duh??) on a cloudy day. Responds well to S & M, (shaking and Moving) but some prefer it clear. Two days in the fridge and the sediment can be separeted for your yeast starter or just a big Vitamin B pill. Itís still the ambrosia for drunken deities and their concubines! Get it up yer..... Same bat time, Same bat channel

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - NOV 14, 2002
Pours beautifully and leave a nice lace of foam around the glass you drink it down. Aroma seemed a bit sour to me slightly reminding me of Berliner Weisse. Amazing amount of sediment which seems to bring the flavor out a bit more when mixed around the beer. Taste and palate wise though I didnít detect anything exciting. Canít come up with anything neccesarily bad. Just seemed a bit airy if that any sense.

cloudy golden amber color, little to no head. Yeasty, almost Belgian character. An unusual, complex flavor. Iíll have to try this one again.

I like this shit a whole lot. Its a little stronger than regular Aussie brew, 5.8%, and the lovely sweet taste lures you home for a beer or two at lunch-time. This is the good shit for sure: goes down like a rasberry cordial. A great beer to get you lucky with the ladies. cause my rhymes makes dollars plus they makes sense.

Medium gold color (cloudy), small head. A medium bodied ale, light and refreshing. Mild and smooth malts, mild hop bite. Champagne yeast added to bottle for natural soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth and dry. Aftertaste has a slight bite, malty and slightly bitter. Interesting beer, Nice taste.

It sparkles briefly when the yeast is mixed in, and tastes like a cross between a lager and a wheat beer. I quite enjoyed mine, and felt it to be an extremely well made beer deserving of its repuation as a world class beer, and the best beer from Australia. But itís not my style really, so I wouldnít rate it that highly; though I can imagine lovers of blonde beer rating it much higher.

Cloudy, did not achieve a very good head. (Although description states ísolid headí. PLeasant taste - slightly hoppy bitterness, followed by very smooth after taste. Slight but very very slight fruit taste. I will have to eventually re-rate this one.
