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.

Filthmuppet (33) - Newtown, - JUL 28, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 Lovelly cloudy apperance, produced by the yeast multiplication in the bottle conditioning. Very robust fruity flavours. Just so well balanced. Excellent session beer. A bottle o around the corner has had it on special now for at least 3 months @ $40 AUS a case. Have lost count of the anount bought, but getting close to a palate. Craps all over the other domestic regular beers. Well worth the extra money. If you have problems convincing people to go the extra money, just argue that its 5.6% abv, and therefore 0.6-0.8% more alcholic than VB, New, Old and all those other uninspiring beers. So when it boils down to it you aren’t paying that much more because in effect you get a few extra beers worth of alcholic satisfaqction. I love this beer, just so accomodating.

GoufCustom (1410) - HONG KONG - MAR 30, 2016


375 ml bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in K11, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Cloudy hazy straw golden honey colour with a cloud of misty yeast particles; Half-finger head with white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with active small carbonation; Sweet and fairly pungent aroma of thick Ale malt, with sick floral, syrup, strong citrus, lemon and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of fair ale malt, with light floral, carbo, Very light caramel, molasses notes, light spices, dry bread, yeast, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and quite strong grass; Mid to light body. Quite slick palate; Mouth feel is fair Ale maltyness in a very slick background. Citrusy lemon dominates with light floral and moderate sweetness and carbo. Dry bready and a bit spicy round with strong lemon rounding. Not bad… Hoppiness is pungent floral, strong citrus, lemon and grass in nose; Light floral, carbo, spices, strong lemon strong grass in taste; Bitterness is close to strong for a lasting, mid-astringent sweet-bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste. Citrusy and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is a significant step-up from the thin and tasteless Original Pale Ale of the same brand, with thicker maltyness and much stronger lemony bitter hops. It still feels cheap, though, with that dirty yeasty looks, sick floral smell, bland hop taste and pretty strong sweetness with lesser hop balance. A cheap thrill, so don’t take this one seriously.

Bottle 37.5cl. Poured into a shaker. Clear pale amber (pouring it carefully because of a lot of sediments), tall frothy white head, half-way lasting and fair lacing; aroma pale malts, grain, grass, bit bready; taste is medium sweet and bitter, malty, grainy, average duration leading to a light dry finish; medium body, watery to oily texture, average carbonation; fresh but quite plain.

Una cerveza curiosa, con trozos de malta cruda en el interior que brillan con la luz... su sabor correcto y agradable. Volvería a probarla.

6 pack from dan murphys, into pint glass, aromas of fresh bread and yeast, malty flavours coming through with a slight bitterness, good lacing with a thin head, very refreshing on a hot Queensland summer day

Lager like graininess. Moderately dry. Pours clear yellow-gold until the yeast was added. Cereal grain. Really tastes like a pre-prohibition lager.

Meget behagelig blond ale fra Australien. Frisk smag, frugtagtig karakter. Tilpas sødme.
