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.

Strangely enough, there are lots of floaties in this one. Hazy orange color. Slightly fruity aroma. Refreshing flavor is tart and fruity but still crisp. I really didnt expect much from this at all. Better than expected.

For being in my fridge for well over 2 years (I think) this is pretty good. Light and refreshing, a bit bitter. Nice going down though.

Aroma is lightly hoppy with banana. Average size white head which is mostly diminishing. Yellow-amber colour. Flavour is lightly acidic and lightly bitter. Average to long refreshing finish. Light to medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. The yeast stays in suspension to the end of the glass. The beer is much better at room temperature than chilled.

Sparkling? How about speckled. Hazy with a large number of small dark floaters. Alright bread and citrus aroma. Hey, not bad toasted malt and fruit flavor. Not the worst.

[bottle from LCBO] From the name of this brew, I expected something bright and effervescent, but what I got was a murky, orange drink that looks pretty flat--maybe it didnt do well on its voyage from down under despite the anti-tylenol poison safety wrap around the cap. English aroma of caramel and goldingsish hop character, but with a little bit of cidery/extract smell. Flavour is full of caramel and zesty effervescence that comes seemingly from out of nowhere to spice up your taste buds. Significant hops flavour as well, though with limited bitterness. Nice tart fruitiness develops a ways through the drink. Overall, a very nice drink: full flavour, medium to full body, and pleasantly refreshing carbonation.

Never seen so many floaties just hanging there in a beer of this style. The flavor is fainlty wheaty but no more, thankfully. It develops into a noticable bubblyness, which dominates and lasts (perhaps why its sparkling?). I like it.

Heh floaties. Tastes pretty good I guess, but for the price theres probably better alternatives. I almost certainly prefer the Pale Ale to this.

Bottled & on tap. Bizarrely, consistently seems better from the bottle and then, out of the bottle rather than from a glass. Dont ask me why - maybe the sediment takes over too much in a glass, but is absent on tap. Anyway, good strong performer in my book, full bodied with nicely balanced yeast, hops and fruity flavours.

Thin head, very cloudy orange beer complete with tons of floaties. Quite interesting to look at. Overall quite a faint armoa with hints of yeast. Slightly acidic, full bodied and sharp. Flavours seem to come out much more when this one warms up. Fizzy {burp}.
