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.

375ml iightweight brown bottle. B/fermented. Poured a cloudy brown with white head. Peach aroma. Sweet citrus flavour with toffe notes & not very subtle alcohol. Bitter grapefruit finish. Its alright but I wouldn’t rush out to grab another.

A very drinkable golden ale. Fruity aroma and flavour, and with a slightly bitter hoppy finish. Nice in the summertime, but quickly forgotten though.

Filthmuppet (33) - Newtown, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 Lovelly cloudy apperance, produced by the yeast multiplication in the bottle conditioning. Very robust fruity flavours. Just so well balanced. Excellent session beer. A bottle o around the corner has had it on special now for at least 3 months @ $40 AUS a case. Have lost count of the anount bought, but getting close to a palate. Craps all over the other domestic regular beers. Well worth the extra money. If you have problems convincing people to go the extra money, just argue that its 5.6% abv, and therefore 0.6-0.8% more alcholic than VB, New, Old and all those other uninspiring beers. So when it boils down to it you aren’t paying that much more because in effect you get a few extra beers worth of alcholic satisfaqction. I love this beer, just so accomodating.

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Cloudy beer with a lot of head. Lots of stuff floating around in the glass. Taste is like a summer beer with its fruit hints. Bland on the first taste but slightly better as it goes down.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Hazy body and highly carbonated; subtle nose is slightly fruity, floral, and citric; watery palate with flavors that include sweet caramel, yeast, and maybe honey; dry finish; not too bad.

Kevin (2156) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 20, 2004
bottle pours orange with a fluffy white head. a weird aroma that reminds me of a melon left out in the sun. bland taste with a slight hint of malt. there is not much to this. leaves a slight bitter taste at finish

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Bottle. Golden body with alot of yeasty floaties and a one finger foamy white head. Nose is not pleasant. It smells like rotten fruit. The flavor is mild. First flavors to come out are yeast, carbonation, light grapefruit, and bread dough. The finish is very clean with almost no linger. I don’t know. This isn’t bad, but I wouldn’t seek it out again.

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2004
Cloudy orange brown color, short but lasting creamy white head, high carbonation. Extreme amount of yeast, which accumulate at the bottom of the glass. Aroma of yeast (surprise surprise), caramel malts and english hops. Taste is malty and sour yeasty, some cookie. Thick palate.
