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.

villevav (300) - FINLAND - APR 22, 2015
[2015-03-07] Kullankeltainen, suodattamaton ja samea. Vaalea vaahto. Tuoksusta vaikea sanoa mitään. Maussa ohut katkeromaku, joka peittää ohutta runkoa. Varsin mitäänsanomaton olut.

vipinvelp (2615) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2015
Clear dark yellow, with some yeast floating. White foam head. Regular barley beer taste and aroma, just a decent beer. (Velp 201504)

rosenbergh (7907) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
375 ml bottle. BB 05/06/16. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Cloudy golden colour with a small foamy white head. Lactic acid, sourness, mild fruity notes and some maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is mild sourness, mild hops, mild bitterness and some maltiness. A bit unpleasant.

Cerveja amarela escura e levemente translúcida. É possível notar a presença dos sedimentos e a espuma se faz presente, branca e fina. O aroma é agradável e convida para uma cerveja fritada e se sente um toque amadeirado. O sabor é equilibrado, porém de baixa complexidade e sem nenhum elemento de destaque. O corpo é médio e o amargor leve persiste no aftertaste, o que não atrapalha a drinkability. A proposta cítrica e amadeirada do aroma é concretizada no sabor. O pálato é ruim; cerveja um pouco rançosa e seca.

superspak (3140) - Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2015
375 ml bottle into pint glass, best after 4/21/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, apple, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apple, pear, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy herbal/peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice English pale ale style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Beerheart65 (1109) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Sparkling cloudy honey ochre, thin short head, sparkling, yeast in bottle follow quite easily. Grainy aroma, bit one-sided, malty. Easy to drink, fizzy, light bodied, dry, grainy, dry finish. Pleasant but not much more.

AleRider78 (117) - - MAR 16, 2015
Poured a hazy light amber colour with almost no head with sediment clearly visible, giving it a thick rusty appearance. Orange flavours, weak on the hop side. Nice cream mouthfeel, yeasty and notes of berries. Fairly well carbonated. Pretty good.

Flavor: toffee, butterscotch, caramel, biscuit, with plenty of hop balance in the background. Overall: very well done. Enjoyed this brew.

Keskitien saunakalja. Isä ah-kisoissa. Sandra Se. Näillä eväillä tänä meni ihan mukavasti.
