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.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2004
2003 bottle. Appearance of a chilled chardonnay; hazy, pale golden-yellow with some light green tinges. Medium sized white head. Smells of light, mildly sour hops, light lemon-orange, touch of ripe pear and a bit of yeast. Begins very dry and papery tasting. No sweetness whatsoever. I was beginning to give up, but as I let it warm, there was a chewy, fruity sweetness, slightly fuzzy on the palate. Flavor blossomed in to chewy dry barley flavor and sour/bitter hops. Medium-light bodied. Lively carbonation. Rated against other styles: not so good. Rated against other blondes: top tier.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Amber body with white, foamy head. Unimpressive citrus aroma. Drinkable with food but not anything I'd sit and savor alone.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2004 Honey colored fizzy body with vast quantities of dark particulates and a soft, clean white head. Aroma of tonic water, apples, and mild bready yeast. Really not very aromatic. Mild organic flavor and honey sweetness. Fizzy palate. A very delicate beer.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 2, 2004
Cloudy golden hue with visible yeast particles and a foamy white head. Fruity nose, full of banana and pear with a malty background. The palate is lively and refreshing with a mild sweet maltiness and a clean, dry finish.

jtw (1106) - farmington, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2004
clear straw color (the yeast clouds it somewhat). inviting hoppy nose, and a nice fruity tang in the body. somewhat fizzy, and finishes a little dry. overall pretty good.

Crockett (1010) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Golden honey colour, cloudy appearance, lacey white head. Lots of cottage cheese sized floaters. Sweet wheat and yeast, with fresh banana bread aroma. Flavours are quite nice. Light apple and cooked pears with banana. Complemented by a soft carbonation, yeast and some burnt notes. Not as great as I originally thought but it was a nice surprise.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2004
Malty, sweet aroma. Pours a cloudy off-yellow, thin head, yeast floaties. Low on the malt. Some piney hop bitterness in the finish.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Cloudy amber in color with a white head. Malt and yeast in the nose. Bitter-sweet flavour with a dry acidic finish. I know it's called sparkling, but I'm not into all the carbonation.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Murky straw color,small white head that had a decent amount of hang time,and left a small lace.Malty light fruit aroma with a decent hop presence.The flavor is fairly decent,malty and sort of semi sweet with a mild fruit taste maybe some form of citrus,decent hops flavor.The finish is mild with a malt hop after taste.Pretty good brew IMO and i wouldn't mind having another one for later.Well worth getting if you can find it.

Very high acid. Clean refreshing finish. Not a very complex. Almond, peach notes. Quite nice.
