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.

Moderately hoppy, with solid malt backbone. This one has some grassy hops and solid maltiness. I think that this beer is more closely related to its english cousins than its american ones. Not overwhelmingly good, but definitely worth a taste.

Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is murky medium yellow, dense particles ranging in size from tiny to medium. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly malty (light bread), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not much aroma in my sample, flavor is pretty yeasty/acidic which left a distasteful coating in the finish.

(Draught) Really nice beer. Lovely honey malt flavours and great appearance. (Bottle) Less pronouced malty flavours and more bitterness but still an excellent brew. (Bottle re-rate) A little dissapointing this time around - I couldn’t quite put my finger on it though. It’s definately better on tap.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2002
Fruity, alchoholic flavours come through on the middle of your tongue, quite a unique and powerful brew. At this price point not many Australian brews come close (except Coopers Pale).

Was surprised by the cloudyness of the colour. Was a murky amber. The taste had some frutiness to it and I found the aftertaste to be long and dry.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2004 Re-rate: 6/2004: I was surprised when I poured this - all the floaties - oh duh! - should have read the label, didn't expect bottle conditioned! was very light, slightly fruity-sweet, super crisp; accentuated by the prickly carbonation. This is a really refreshing brew

Noticeable hop smell. Murky amber. Some bitter taste. Grassiness. average

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 16, 2002
would be a great session beer. hazy amber, aroma of baked bread. hasa nice sweet malt taste with a bitter hop finish. smooth soft palate carbonation is perfect, bubbly enough to be refreshing but not fizzy.

this is good. you can almost taste the alcohol cause it is very high. not as good as Coopers Pale Ale.

Sediment gives a cloudy appearance to this unique ale. I can’t think of another ale like this one. Recommended and better than, erm, Fosters!
