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 arenít paying that much more because in effect you get a few extra beers worth of alcholic satisfaqction. I love this beer, just so accomodating.

A blond ale without foam? Is it blond or what is that colour? And what is that smell? But then again it has a good bite and a quite ok aftertaste. All in all a very drinkable beer, also outside of Australia.

Pours light hazy copper with minimal to no head. Aroma strong malt and lemon zest, quite nice. Taste is medium sweet and mild bitter, quite clean tasting. A tad watery in the mouth and noticable carbonation. Overall pretty good.

Poured from bottle into a Spieglau IPA glass, it poure a hazy light golden orange colour with weak white foam, no lace. This is a very old bottle, but the only one I have to rate. I hope to someday re-rate a fresh pint. Grainy, earthy, woodsy, apricots, black pepper, banana.Hint of dextrine malt sweetness. Minty aftertaste, with an intersting lemon zest, lemongrass essence. Medium body, intensely spritzy carbonation, drier than expected finish. Great live bottle-conditioned characteristics. Some leathery oxidation, which adds an interesting complexity, but I doubt itís an intended flavour at prime condition. Good not great, but itís still easy to see why this is such a popular thirst quencher in the Australian climate.

Patrickctenchi (5786) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle: Slightly hazy amber, with a short, light beige head. Soft fruit, bread aroma. Taste is sweet, caramel malt, yeast.... Just OK......a little doughy.

LazyPyro (434) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
375ml bottle. Cloudy pale orange colour with a lot of yeast sediment floating around which eventually settles, small white head. Aroma is malty and citrus fruit, lemon or orange, yeast, floral. Flavour is malty, citrus fruit, floral, bittersweet but the finish is mostly bitter hops and some lemon. Well carbonated. Refreshing but not sure itís one Iíd want regularly.

From a bottle. A well made decent beer, nothing flash, just a solid drink. Nice malt aroma, smooth and mild bitter finish.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Fresh and mild. A perfect thirst quencher with a round and balanced, still refreshing, malty body.
