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.

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.

MrKevvie (29) - Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Nice flavour, good colour, lots of sediment in the bottle. Not much of an aroma but an excellent beer on the whole

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. So, this is farily malty, perhaps a bit fruity. But virtualy no hops or flavour. Uninspiring.

You can go past a coopers on tap! Mirky cloudy beer. Fruity almost foresty flavour. Some bitterness.

rickgordon (3858) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2004
Bottled. Hazy golden. Crisp and fruity flavour, almost sorbet-like with a touch of banana. Some bitterness.

Bottled. Hazy amber with particles. Not much of an aroma. Fresh and fruity with some bitterness.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
BAM! Wonderful. Pours a cloudy yellow body chocked full of sediment. Aroma is citrusy, hoppy, and slightly sour. Taste is of light hops, fruit, and mild alcohol. A little thin, but still great. This really reminds me of a Belgian Strong.

Waxtad (1) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2004 does not count
A fine, bottle fermented ale. Far superior when bottle is inverted and/or rolled prior to pouring (contrary to comments below). A love a beer that has a "Best After" date rather than "Best Before"!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 29, 2004
Unclear hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Quite weak in the aroma - yeast, flower and fruit. Somewhat sourish flavor with some hoppy bitterness. Nice taste but too thin!
