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 beer is one of the most drinkable beers in AUS. Stronger in alcohol than most AUS beers, sometimes has stuff floating in it but.... weird

A bit bland, was expecting more from this beer, nice yeasty feel, but flavor was average, an ok beer, but not great.

Minor barnyard and citrus on the nose. Champagne sweetness and citrusy undertones in the mouth. Good effervesence and light gold color.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 1, 2004
This brew pours with an orange-gold body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma and flavor are both slightly sweet yet slightly sour with lemon grass notes, a little bitterness and a touch of yeast. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2004
Some mild herbal hops in the nose with plenty of fruity esters. Hazy yellow-blonde with generous white head that recedes to lasting cover. Mild citrus hop flavour and some yeasty fruitiness with a light balancing bitterness. Strong carbonation and engaging mouthfeel. Enjoyable. Bottle.

Pours a yellow hue with a white head. Aromas of yeast, hops. Thick mouthfeel with a slight bitterness. Very skunky.

JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2004
bottle: Pours a straw coloured body with white head. Skunky aroma, mild hops and yeast. tastes of yeast, and slight hops. Smooth beer, with bitter aftertaste that lingers on tounge. Average!

Darkover (1528) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Cloudy orange color with alot of sediment. Barely detectable fruit aroma. Flavor is a little sour with a lot of citrus fruit flavors and some wheat in the finish. Pretty unusual

Cloudy. Quite fruity and refreshing. Still pretty heavy body and bitter finish. A nice easy drinkable beer.

Well I was actually pleasantly surprised by this one. I know vrey little about beer from down-under, and of the few I have had none were very good. This one was a nice hazy golden amber with lots of yeast sediment pouring forth as well. Fresh fruity aromas with some background spice. Not very potent but nice. Same goes for the flavours - apples and perhaps a little citrus and a little pear - not very strong or complex but very drinkable and refreshing. Has a nice mild hops bitterness in the finish. I’ll try it again as a summertime quaffable ale.
