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.

(Bottle) Pours a thin dissipating white head and a gold body. Faint malt aroma. Slight of taste with a Yeast and fruit finish. Good.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Original Rating: Pours a cloudy apple juice colour with absolutely no head. Very faint aroma of malt & a bit of fruit (pear?). Very little body - verging on being flat, in fact, which makes me wonder if I got a bad bottle. The flavour is nice, however - a mellow combo of malt, mild yeast, and some acidic fruit with a crisp finish. I'll have to try another bottle... Re-Rate: I think my first bottle was off a bit, as this second one had more body & carbonation to it, and poured with a moderate head. So I've bumped it up a couple of points.

As has been said fairly good but nothing to seperate it as something special.

Fruity, yeasty flavors with a dry, tart finish. Good golden color and subtle bubbles. Nothing extraordinary; slightly weak.

The bottle I had a fair amount sediment. Sweet in the nose, very balanced it has a tart finish which is what I would expect from a sparkling ale

I have to say that this is my first real Austrailian beer other then Fosters (Canadian brewed). Good unchilled. Cloudy not a long lasting head. If I see it again I might consider buying it again.

Now this beer is like the little irsh boxer, small in stature but wow what a fighter. It is equal to the vintage.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2003 maybe the worlds best session ale, go to the brewery nothing like the damaged stuff we get shipping it from australia. Brewery date code is on the bottom of the bottle. This ale is not about little flavors here and there. Its a great all nite drinking beer and has a great fruity,yeasty aftertaste. Rates with Timothy Taylor"s Landlord, Belhaven Scottish, Brakspear"s Special, Marston"s Pedigree and DeKoninck as some of the best session ales in the world.
