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.

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

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.

leaparsons (7930) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2002
Sediment gives a cloudy appearance to this unique ale. I canít think of another ale like this one. Recommended and better than, erm, Fosters!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2002
A tad bit cloudy golden amber color, frothy white head and decent lace. Nose is malt and a bit citrus, clean and fresh. Front is malt sweet, the top is light, the finish is acidic, dry, nicely hopped and has moderate carbonation, a decent beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2002
Straw color with slight chill/protein haze. Minimal head. Spritzy feel, with fruity, oaky flavors. A good light pale.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2004 getting much worse lately, POR, alcohol, acid yeastiness, thin fruit, fizzy with no head, even paler than it used to be, although every now and again a bottle surprises me by being fruity and mellow and belgian. i do not understand why this is

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2002
Donít blink or you will miss the head. Heavy sediment. Some what a bland aroma. Nice flavor but I didnít get the fruity flavors that others report. A nice crisp feel with a pleasing aftertaste. A bit light for an ale. Started ice cold in a frosty mug, seemed to mask the flavors, became tastier as it warmed. Much better than the Hahnís I had earlier today.

Octopussy (50) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2002
Probably my favourite beer now, with the inconsistancy in the quality of pale ale of late. Maybe not quite as smooth as pale but a little more fruitier and more consistant in quality.
