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 sample from early backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, hints of caramel and biscuits, some fruitiness with mild citrus and apples. Everything seemed weak and stale. Maybe it doesnít travel well.

330ml bottle. Hazy light brown color. Apple jam, iron, grainy, malty, sweet aroma. Apples, iron, malty and grainy taste. Mild bitterness. Grassy hops in aftertaste. Messy and unclean.

Smooth malty sweet smell, taste is similar...malty with very low hops...taste that is hard to place...slight butterscotch?

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 (531) - 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 (920) - 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.
