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.

Bottle from lcbo. Seems to be bottle conditioned, lots of sediment in hazy orange colour. Some bread like notes in aroma. Taste is crisp, slightly bitter, slightly sweet as well. Good carbonation throughout. Not bad, but seems to be a bit overrated in my opinion.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2004 Came from the liquor store with a date coded bottle with shrink wrap over the crown to prevent spoilage. Mine was fairly fresh only about 6 weeks from release date. Poured a cloudy orangey-gold with a wonderful puffy-chunky cap that reduced to a firm lace half way through the drink. Very naturally effervescent...big bubbles stream up the glass and make the ample yeast sediment dance about in the glass (bottle conditioned ale?). Aromas of spoiled bananas and fresh baked bread. Starts sharp and a bit peppery (from the carbonation) then a richer, oily mouthfeel builds with a wonderfully pronounced malty nuttyness accented with fruity tastes like pears and apples then the finish is clean with a wonderful slight aftertaste of bread and cider. I like this ale and if the LCBO stocks it there will always be 6 or so for the hot days....this is a very satisfying and refreshing old-style bottle conditioned ale...a wonderful treat at the price.

Hangover (1120) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Murky orange with visible sediment... defnitely not "sparkling". Fresh spice and fruit aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Hints of banana, fruit, spice, citrus with a slighly bitter, yet clean finish. Defintely tasty, and an easy drinker. I liked it!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2004
Head is small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is murky medium yellow, almost like a wheat beer. Aroma is lightly hoppy (flowers)and. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter. Finish is decent with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Not much aroma. If someone put this infront of me while I was blindfolded it would take me a few guesses to determine the style, perhaps thats what makes this beer good but nothing near great.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2004
Bottle: Hazy light amber colour with a small, ver brief head. No lacing. Aroma of sweet malt combined with some grassy and slightly foral hops notes. Flavour was a bit watery with malt dominating, some very faint rockmelon notes, and a soft bitterness on the end. Natural carbonation which is nice. Light body. A nice beer but no real complexity.

argo0 (13439) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Clear straw with medium white head. Aroma is honey sweet, bready, light floral -- evokes pastry. Taste is medium sweet, grassy/floral/herbal, honey. Light-medium body, some crispness.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2004
Bottled. Sold to me with a knowing smile and they were right; given that my only other Aussie beer experience has been Fosters/XXXX this is not so much a different league as a different game on a different planet. Looks fantastic, opaque gold with a lively carbonation albeit little head to show for it. Whiff of fresh dough, tingles in the mouth with a citrusy/sour taste, bitterish aftertaste, all round good stuff.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2004
This is a golden colored beer with quite a bit of floating particles throughout. Hard to make out much of an aroma, maybe some citrus. Smooth, almost creamy with a soft touch of nicely balanced malt and citrus flavors. This is a quality beer.

Nice flavour, good colour, lots of sediment in the bottle. Not much of an aroma but an excellent beer on the whole

Bottle Conditioned. So, this is farily malty, perhaps a bit fruity. But virtualy no hops or flavour. Uninspiring.
