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.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured clear then bacame a cloudy pale gold with a low white head. The nose had a light fruitiness with some malt sweetness. The flavor started with some slight grassy bittering, a light fruitiness and a dry bread flavor.The finish was dry with hard grassy bitters and the body was medium to light. This beer from Down Under blows Dingos. It will now go ’Down Under’ my kitchen sink as it splashes down the drain.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy orange colour. Small, but firm head. Fruity, yeasty aroma woth some caramel in there. Yeasty, fruity, slightly caramelly flavour. Notes of pepper and citrus fruits. Medium bitter and hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is slightly smooth. I like it. Its taste somewhat reminded me of Vormanns Doppel Bock, especially the peppery notes.

Hazy orange color, not much head. Sweetish hoppy aroma. Crisp carbonation, sweetish yeasty flavor with some hoppy bitterness underlying there. Someway weizen-like ale. (6/3/7/3/13 3.2)

- Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2005
12.7oz bottle, best before 21.07.06. Served around 46.5° in my NB worthy glass. Pours copper orange with a 1/2" head, plenty of streaming, small-bubbled carbonation, and a slew of ground pepper sized floaties that quickly find their way to the bottom of the glass. The aroma is yeasty with a hint of fruit, smells more like champagne. The flavor is somewhat yeasty at first, then more yeasty, biscuty (american biscuts), a little peppery, lemony, with a mildly bitterish finish. Ho-hum.

Schioth (41) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle. Nice fresh aroma. Fine appearance (not filtered). Very fresh flavor with a bit of lemon. Nice comfortable mouthfeel. Overall recommendable for a hot summer day.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle. Pours a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Large sediment floats in abundance. No lacing. Taste is malty with a bit of fruit, especially towards banana. A bit bitter in the finish this beer is very carbonated and pretty drinkable.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Used to be my favourite beer in Oz in 1988. Bill from La Fayette, CA used to call it a "No shit beer" because of the "no additives" and the bottle-sediment, which was unusual at the time. Well, a lot of beer has run through the system since then. Years later it doesn’t really live up to the sweet memories. Bronze-coloured and hazy, if you pour the sediment too it turns greyish brown. Dry, quaffable, only light hoppiness and a very subdued aroma. 181104

Brown-orange, cloudy, particles, thin white head. Banana aroma, disinfection alcohol, fruity and fresh. Malty flavor with hoppy and almondy notes.

raymow (1371) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2005
I’d have to say that it’s...just o.k. I was actually expecting it to be a little better. I’m not a big fan of cloudy, sediment filled beers (unless they taste great, which this one doesn’t).

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 20, 2005
Tasted 30/03/2005. 330ml bottle at the Cellar Vate March tasting. Pale gold with an almost greenish tint and a thin white head. Yeast is left in the bottle and this looks pretty firey, just as I remember. There is a slight cabbagey aroma to this one making me wonder where it’s been before it got here. Some leathery yeast notes are also noted. Even without the yeast poured in, the flavour is dominated by yeast and citrus pithiness with the palate also pithy. Mouthfeel is light and very spritzy. Certainly an interesting beer but I prefer the pale ale.
