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.

Hazy blond body with a thin white head. Malty nose with a touch of honey. Palate is okay, but a bit chalky. Good carbonation...very bright. A fairly good tasting beer. Honey malt sweetness up front. Finishes dry with a nice punch of sour citrus. Quite drinkable.

maekchu (2196) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Light malty nose, yeast, bread, and gentle peach. Medium straw color, a bit hazy, and a thin flimy head. Fruity initial, with grass, little cookies, and a yeast bite. Thin-medium body, with lots of carbonation tingle. Okay. Not as good as I remember it from years ago. Not the top blonde at the bar.

"a little spicy and earthy in the aroma. not a lot of follow through on the taste. nothing offensive at all, but a simple session beer at best. probably wonít try this one again, either. just the stout and vintage from Coopers have been "good"."

jjsint (828) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle purchased from Bacchus Wines, Olney. Golden brown and cloudy, with a quickly dissipating white head. Toast, malt, tropical fruit, spruce and a bit of bubblegum in the aroma. Bittersweet taste with a touch of savoury woodiness. Caramel, honey and bitter herb flavours. Short bitter finish. Light mouthfeel but lots of lively carbonation on the palette. You know, this isnít bad.

Dry and malty, but only a bit. Subtle hints of orange and hops make for a relatively good effort.

jrodooo5 (1034) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Decent hazy gold pour w/ a thin white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is nearly nonexistent - a little malty & a lot boring! The taste is too clean & finishes a touch metallic. The body & mouthfeel is good for the style but there isnít much else to praise here. Not very good!

Icedwarf (347) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2014
Troebel geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en kruidig, caramel, drop, echter iets waterig. Blijft redelijk lang hangen. Goed bier.

Hazy dark yellow colour with thin white head. Not really tasty, some citrous and dry ending. Easy to drink but not really interesting.
