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.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2014
375ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Bland aroma. Pale, but hazy, small brief head. Fizzy palate, thin and watery. Some starch. Not so good. Apple. No thank you.

MarkoNm (402) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color, topped with small wjite head. It quickly settles to a small cover. The aroma is pleasantly malty, there are also some sweet fuits. Some dust later on. The taste is sweet, slightly spicy. Some unpleasant bittery taste later. Thereís some metallic feel in the aftertaste. Not my favourite Coopers.

Hazy, cloudy goodness. Yeasty, dry taste. Like if your homebrew actually turned out really good.

Pyobon (891) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2014
(Bottle) Slightly hazy golden with thin white short-lived head. Aroma is grainy, grassy, vegetable - itís good that it has some boldness, but it is somewhat inelegant. Light bodied, fizzy and refreshing. Taste is soft malt, some restrained pleasant fruitiness, bread, maybe some peppery spice and some moderate, but rather harsh, bitterness in the finish. Much better than most mass produces Australian beers, easily drinkable, but these days there are a lot of better beers readily available.

Flavours of malts, bitters, some yeast, some toast, plants, leaves, bread, caramel, sweet wood, herbs and more bitters. Aftertaste is bitter, malty, herbal and planty with a sweet wood touch. Low to medium carbo, creamy mouthfeel, low to medium bodied and a light watery texture.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle shared by Tom. Clear gold pour with creamy white head. Aroma is grainy, very vegetal, light grassy hop. Taste is better, a bit bland and grainy, sweet honey maltiness, very light spicy-grassy hop. Pale-lagerish to the bone, this beer has about as much character as Raquel. Bland.

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (375 ml). Slightly hazy bright golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramel, corn/cereals, light fruity notes, grassy notes and alcohol fusel. Taste is slightly sweet with herbal/grassy presence, light fruitiness, malt/caramel and light alcohol. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Not quite different from a Pale Lager. Iím ashamed that this in my Australia country tick, I promise I will try something better for this country sooner than later. Pretty bad.
