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.

Cloudy, did not achieve a very good head. (Although description states ’solid head’. 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.

Nice clean and crisp ale with a well balanced bitter aftertaste. I was pleasantly surprised with this brew.

Faint hazy brown and a small splodge of beige sediment under a chunky bubbled cream coloured head. Faint green fruit and woody hops aroma when cold, moving to stronger bubblegum and caramel aroma as it warms. Medium to light body with thin lowly carbonated British Pub ale mouthfeel. Start is medium fruity and light bitter flavoured. Middle is soft fruity hops fading slowly to a thin textured faintly sweetish bubblegummy finish and aftertaste. Interesting but somehow I was expecting a little more.

A very nice, refreshing ale. My favourite from the Coopers stable. Goes down a treat on a hot day.

A very nice change of pace from the cartlon family of beers in australia - aroma has hints of wheat and fruit, refreshing.

Very impressive. An eloquent ale that I also feel doesn’t fit the category of English-Style Ale. Pours a hazy-orange peel color. Nice 2-finger head that disipates to a nice lace all the way down. Smells of green apple, spice and some bready undertones. Perky-light-bodied mouthfeel, carb a bit jumpy but suprisingly not annoying. Finishes with a nice spicy hop snap, making this a well rounded, very! refreshing brew. Duvel, popped into my head at first, but this brew is a winner in its own right. I’d say a good summer alternative

Cloudy, peachy yellow. Nice aroma. Very bibbly. Orval-like nose? Yeasty, with good fruity tones. Quite nice. I got a real Belgian ale taste from this. No big afertaste.

A cloudy tea colored beer with little head. Taste is kind of mild and mainly malt with some noticable hops. Not as good as the other Coopers beers I’ve had, but still decent.

A somewhat missleading title for a very pleasant beer.Cloudy rather than sparkling and nothing like your average Australian Lager.More like a cross between a bitter and a wheat beer it has a sharpe taste that is very unique.Slightly spicey but not in an overpowering way this is a beer to be consumed with love-admire from a distance the drink steadily.You wont be dissapointed.
