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.

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 (1534) - 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.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2004
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.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2004
Pours a lite brown colour with a thin white head. Fruity aroma (pear,apple) some yeast. The taste is quite refreshing, mild hops, nice carbonation and mild notes of the aforementioned fruit. As was said recently by joemcphee, would have been a great beer for summer. Oh well there’s always next summer!

DiscoForever (71) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 17, 2004
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy murky amber with yeast swirling thru / thick foamy off-white head / medium effervescence - looks really luscious. I smelt the mellow fruity aroma and settled on spiced apple strudel with buttery pastry. The taste was surprising. The yeastiness and medium body reminded me of wheat beer: smooth fruitiness that's slightly tart. There's also a big prickly zing at the front of the mouth. The aftertaste is round and fruity and a light, mouth-coating bitterness remains. On my second pour, the extra yeast gave the flavour a punchy rev up. This is a very yummy and unique beer: a great refresher / quencher and good for quiet supping too. I'd drink a couple of these, lightly chilled, with a light brunch (or on it's own at the end of the day). Might also go with antipasto. Best Aussie beer I've tasted.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Cloudy orange beer with a tight layer of suds. Very fruity apple, peach, apricot and pear aromas over a light spicy character. Flavour shows more fruitiness as well with apple character dominating. Finish is slightly spicy and very refreshing. Great summertime beer.

Stew41 (1885) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 7, 2004
Cloudy light brown / caramel in the glass - looks inviting. Nose is a little sudued but has some fruity, slightly sweet notes. Good mouthfeel, a little plain in the flaour stakes but finishes ok with some mild hoppiness and bitterness. Needs a bit more omph to be really interesting. Had the Pale Ale last night and for once probably showed better than the red label.

this beer is loaded with sediment. very hazy dull golden color, with a white head, somewhat lasting. aroma has some cardboard, wet paper qualities with some banana and spent bubblegum notes slightly like a hefe. flavor is sweetish, tangy with a lively mouthfeel. finish is somewhat dry with more cardboard notes.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2004
Cloudy if you pour it right, with a nice little white head over a dark gold to light brown beer. Aroma is, well, coopers, fruity with a hint of malt/caramel. I enjoy this beer, perhaps more so than it logically scores, but it has a good balance, is a little quirky, and is good.
