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.

Hangover (1065) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Murky orange with visible sediment... defnitely not "sparkling". Fresh spice and fruit aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Hints of banana, fruit, spice, citrus with a slighly bitter, yet clean finish. Defintely tasty, and an easy drinker. I liked it!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2004
Head is small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is murky medium yellow, almost like a wheat beer. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers)and. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter. Finish is decent with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Not much aroma. If someone put this infront of me while I was blindfolded it would take me a few guesses to determine the style, perhaps thats what makes this beer good but nothing near great.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2004
Bottle: Hazy light amber colour with a small, ver brief head. No lacing. Aroma of sweet malt combined with some grassy and slightly foral hops notes. Flavour was a bit watery with malt dominating, some very faint rockmelon notes, and a soft bitterness on the end. Natural carbonation which is nice. Light body. A nice beer but no real complexity.

Clear straw with medium white head. Aroma is honey sweet, bready, light floral -- evokes pastry. Taste is medium sweet, grassy/floral/herbal, honey. Light-medium body, some crispness.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2004
Bottled. Sold to me with a knowing smile and they were right; given that my only other Aussie beer experience has been Fosters/XXXX this is not so much a different league as a different game on a different planet. Looks fantastic, opaque gold with a lively carbonation albeit little head to show for it. Whiff of fresh dough, tingles in the mouth with a citrusy/sour taste, bitterish aftertaste, all round good stuff.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2004
This is a golden colored beer with quite a bit of floating particles throughout. Hard to make out much of an aroma, maybe some citrus. Smooth, almost creamy with a soft touch of nicely balanced malt and citrus flavors. This is a quality beer.

MrKevvie (29) - Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Nice flavour, good colour, lots of sediment in the bottle. Not much of an aroma but an excellent beer on the whole

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. So, this is farily malty, perhaps a bit fruity. But virtualy no hops or flavour. Uninspiring.

You can go past a coopers on tap! Mirky cloudy beer. Fruity almost foresty flavour. Some bitterness.

Bottled. Hazy golden. Crisp and fruity flavour, almost sorbet-like with a touch of banana. Some bitterness.
