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.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Pours much like a beautiful golden Belgian ale. Nice golden orange body with a thick cap of powdery white head. The aroma and flavor are awfully light and none aggressive yeasty, with a note of lemon, oranges, banana and a hint of clove kind of like a German Heff. I dont really know hat to think about this beer? It fairs as a well crafted beer would, but with a lack of enthusiasm. Good beer, nice buttery palate just not all that exciting for me overall.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Bottle: Thin, short lived white head w/ a pale straw bubbly body. Very little exciting about the aroma. Hints of malt and earthy hops. Light fruitiness. Very boring flavor. I would describe it as non offensive, and would be good for someone looking to break out of the norm. Unfortunately, you wouldnt be improving anything. Hints of fruit in the flavor, as are grainy malt and a hint of hop, but aftertaste is fairly clean and boring. Light bodied, almost watery, highly carbonated, but surprisingly its not biting like other high carbontion beers. Nice for a change or after mowing the lawn on a hot day.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2008 The colour was cloudy dark yellow, the taste very agreeable, and the aftertaste somewhat spicy. If I had one choice on a hot day in the sun, Id choose this one. So far the best Aussie beer Ive tasted. BTW it’s anything but sparkling, but then with a Victoria Bitter tha is not a bitter at all, Australian have a problem with the names of their beers.

Interesting beer that begs the question, why is it bottle conditioned? A light corn hop aroma and taste. Decent but not worth seeking out.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Bottle best before 11/02/05. Cloudy orange, with a brief head, which completely disappeared. Sweet and malty aroma with some fruit. Flavour is fruity and malty. Slight bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, but somewhat disappointing on the palate.

Tejas (1005) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Drinkable slightly better than average beer. Pretty well balanced too. Dont know if Id buy it again but I also wouldnt talk poorly about it.

vanvenlo (1855) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
7 May 2004 - Sampled AIBA 2004 - Slight fruity spiced aroma. White head, Nice cloudy look, brown and thick lacing. Fizzy but not cidery, light body, and taste doesnt linger. Doesnt inspire but provides pleasant relief.

hotstuff (5112) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Bottle. Small sized white head and fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Fast rising carbonation, hazy, some yeast nd a pale yellow hue. Malty, sweet and fruity aroma. Sweet and malty flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Next to no lacing on the sides of my glass.

thedm (6099) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2004
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. The body was very hazy with suspended bubbles and yeast floating in it and a dark yellow orange color. The aroma was mildly doughy and malty and the mouth feel was

mjg74 (3079) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 Pours a real hazy beige, with tons of stuff floating in the glass. Smells kind of fruity. Has a little sweetness in the taste. Aftertaste is a little bitter.
