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.

This poured translucent light golden, but out of habit I swirled the last bit around in the bottle and was surprised to get a big cloud of yeast. Then I tasted it. This is one of the most indistinct beers I've ever had. I think the yeast added more flavor than anything else. Furthermore, the description on the side of the bottle (not the one displayed here) insinuates that the sediment is something special that resulted from all the "wonderful flavor" they added, as opposed to a natural by-product of fermentation.

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2003
This is my first beer from Coopers, and I'm already pleasantly surprised, simply by the appearance. A nice, light gold with some little sediment and almost snowy white head. The aroma is a little weak, as is the flavor. this lacks any character or boldness to set it apart. As such, it's fairly good, but nothing extraordinary.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2003
This one pours a very cloudy, pale golden color with yeast particles floating throughout. The head was ver small, fizzy, and dissipated into nothing very rapidly. The aroma is sweet and slightly nutty. The flavor is slightly fruity, with a hint of yeast and a sweet, lingering finish. Interesting fruity flavor and refreshing qualities make this a decent beer, but nothing to get excited about.

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2003
Pours light a thing, aroma was weak but sweet, and taste was watery, but with a nice yeasty flavor. Yeast particles were left at the bottom of the glass, but gave the last drink slightly more body.

CapFlu (4723) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a thin dissipating white head and a gold body. Faint malt aroma. Slight of taste with a Yeast and fruit finish. Good.

GregClow (2958) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
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.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Fruity, yeasty flavors with a dry, tart finish. Good golden color and subtle bubbles. Nothing extraordinary; slightly weak.

HoppyKev (50) - Redford, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2002
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

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
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.
