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.

pintbypint (3327) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2005
375ml brown bottle. Hazy light gold with noisy white layer of foam. Fruity aroma, caramel. Sharp malty taste. Mild finishing hops leave pleasant bittereness.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Whaty and yeasty aroma with some sweet sugary hints. Sweet sugar and malt in flavour along with hints of yeast and wheat. Pleasant palate.

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2005
Pours pale and cloudy with visible colloidal yeast and little head. Aromas of fruit (pears?) and yeast dominate. Palate is mildly hopped and fruity with a slightly bittersweet finish. Certainly unique. After polishing off a whole carton of these with a buddy, I had the worst hangover I’ve had in a long time-- could histamines associated with the yeast play a role? Or maybe I’m just getting old.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Bottle. Thin white head, cloudy blonde color, with lot of floaties (sediment). Malty, and slightly hoppy in nose, perhaps even somewhat yeasty. Flavor is malty, sour, and a bit yeasty in the end. Disappointing flavor, but perhaps mine is really old. A bit of hops in finish, kind of like an ESB would have.

piscator34 (2344) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
Blonde in colour and somewhat cloudy. Loads of fruit on the nose, along with some lighter malt notes. There’s a bit of grassy hop flavors, with more fruit flavors which seem to throw everything out of wack. A fair amount of bitterness in there too. It tastes more like a lager gone wrong rather than an ale.

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.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2005 Bottled (BB 10/2006)
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)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 10/2006)
Golden, slightly hazy, no head. Nose has hops, yeast, pears and sparkling wine. Hoppy, a bit sweetish yeasty (Belgium like). (7/2/7/3/12 3.1)

- 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.

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.
