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.

You can go past a coopers on tap! Mirky cloudy beer. Fruity almost foresty flavour. Some bitterness.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
BAM! Wonderful. Pours a cloudy yellow body chocked full of sediment. Aroma is citrusy, hoppy, and slightly sour. Taste is of light hops, fruit, and mild alcohol. A little thin, but still great. This really reminds me of a Belgian Strong.

Waxtad (1) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004 does not count
A fine, bottle fermented ale. Far superior when bottle is inverted and/or rolled prior to pouring (contrary to comments below). A love a beer that has a "Best After" date rather than "Best Before"!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 29, 2004
Unclear hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Quite weak in the aroma - yeast, flower and fruit. Somewhat sourish flavor with some hoppy bitterness. Nice taste but too thin!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2004
Poured a bit too much and now i have floaties. Any way, cloudy amber, no head. Yeast and hops, the citrus kind. Some malt backing it all up. Malt is a little more forth coming, the hops are a touch more bold, and there is presence of alcohol in the flavors. Some fruit as well. Medium bodied, a tad of spices in the palate and a slightly bitter finish.

Hazy pale gold. Small white head. Yeasty aroma. Yeasty flavor with hints of fruit.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 23, 2004
Hazy dishwater brown appearance. Minimal white fizzy head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Mostly yeasty flavour with a nutty bitter finish. Dry and prickly mouthfeel.

DanielBrown (3999) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2004
Bottle from Safeway, Rubery, Birmingham. After pouring most of this, I read the bottle which suggested care was needed to avoid disturbing the sediment - doh! Any way, after leaving the poured drink for about 15 mins, I could see a lot of the small particles congregated at the bottom, and set off on the rate. Looks just like a Hefeweizen, but with a smaller, snowy white head. Retains a very lagery taste, but with extra lemon and milkiness. Not as dramatic as I expected. Soft in the beginning, adding some clarity in the middle, before a slightly grainy, dryish finish. A slight let down.
