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.

jjsint (772) - 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 isn’t bad.

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

jrodooo5 (1018) - 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 isn’t much else to praise here. Not very good!

Icedwarf (325) - 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.

Cimbasso (88) - - AUG 24, 2014
Hazy golden colour with yeasty sediment and a white head. The aroma is fruity and spicy. The taste is fruity - bitter orange marmalade and apple - with a harsh hoppiness which quickly fades in the mouth. Not very full in the mouth but quite refreshing. At least it is better than Foster’s. Reminds me slightly of the bottle-fermented Worthington White Shields that we used to drink in the 1970’s.

Alengrin (1742) - BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2014
The best known Australian beer I guess, with yellowish white, moussy foam and misty, deep golden blonde colour. Rather weak aroma, grassy hops, pear, banana, also a bit lightstruck. Light malty taste, on the dry side, metallic like their Original Pale Ale, finishing hoppier than the latter but still rather thin and at times even a bit watery.

Grima (2098) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from a drinking market in Werl, Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany!
Pours strong golden yellow with tiny head. Smells malty sweet. Starts bitter malty, slight bready, metallic. Goes into a bready-malty, fruity-fermented finish.

Pour hazy orange with a lot of white head. Malty, fruity aroma. Little bit sour taste. Nice beer for a warm day.
