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.

An underrated and priceworthy ale which has a good mix between hops and malt.

750ml bottle pours a yellow amber color without much head. Easy going ale. Mild on the hops.

bonkiedeaap (349) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2015
Found a bottle in de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is gold/yellow colored a pours a small white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is a mixture of hops, malts and yeast notes, but also the sweetness of different fruits is noticable. The taste is medium bodied, light bitter and spicy, but overall it´s a little watery. Though the taste is very refreshing which is good for a warm country like Australia. The finish is light bitter and refreshing.

TedE (214) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2015
750ml bottle into pint glass. Light malt/acidic nose. Cloudy golden beer with solid two finger head. Nice lightly spritzy mouthfeel, good bitterness. Finish develops through sharp bitterness to floral notes,even a little bubblegum, then back to a slightly lingering citric end. One of Australia’s great beers.

Calisky (1246) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2015
Couleur orangée trouble, mousse qui disparait, pas mal de dépots. Nez malté, sucré, note de miel. Gout malté doux, herbes, notes miel et levures. Corps assez leger. Pas trop gouteuse....

floydian1 (1100) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 26, 2015
375ml bottle (rolled before serving). Pours cloudy light golden with an ample loose white head. Aroma and flavour is light bready malts with subtle fruity hops and a trace of yeasty spiciness. Palate is spritely and refreshing with a medium body and light bitterness to the finish. Does it job nicely. It’s longevity and importance as a gateway beer for further investigation of craft brews in Australia should not be underestimated.

Kauge (437) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle at Tops in Tallinn. Coppery colour, hazy, practically no head. Loads of bubbling going on still after a while. Nose is caramel, lemonade, floral hops. Taste is overall caramelly, sweet malts in the front and harsh herbal kind of bitterness in the finish. Wouldn’t say it’s balanced. Carbonation very intense. An easy drinker but not a very enjoyable one.

kwik-lime (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle at Woody’s in Kingston, don’t know why I’ve never had it before. Well carbonated, good floral aroma, pleasantly hopped but not to a great strength. Nice enough beer.

Dark golden to orange color; hazy; quickly dissipating white head - aroma of malt, yeast, tropical fruits, some citrus hops - medium sweet and slightly bitter taste - medium body, rather creamy texture, fizzy carbonation - finish with grainy aroma.

Zarkam (507) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2015
375ml bottle from a Liviko licquor store in Tallinn, cloudy, almost murky light amber colour, small mostly vanishing frothy white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and caramel, moderate limey and resiny hops and moderate somewhat fruity yeast with some hints of cloves. Taste is initially slightly sweet and otherwise balanced, turning into a moderately bitter finish with an astrigent feel. Full body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Not a bad ale, fairly traditional I guess.
