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.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
I must say for the older, bigger brother of the Original Pale Ale, they sure are nothing alike. Even in Adelaide, I must have only tasted this a couple of times as the Pale Ale was the acceptable means at any bar in the city. Pity, as this was easily the more characterful of the two. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a Coopers stein glass. Slightly hazy deep gold with a bad case of the floaties. Raised a good " of white foam that remained steadfast and left a little lace. Bready yeast, orange citrus and toffee nose that was subtle but quite inviting. Similar in the mouth to the aroma, relatively light bodied and soft in carbonation. Sweet, toasted malt and bready yeast dominated the palate with a mix of herbal hop tones and an odd hint of ethanol (may be the sample) in the back, followed by a rather fresh and crisp, short-lived swallow. Went down with ease and still tastes like a Coopers. Sessionable. (375mL, Best after 08/02/05)

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
Bottle (375ml). Pours a cloudy orange with a very small fast-disappearing white head - tons of minute dark floaties suspended in it. Aroma is interesting - very yeasty, with orange juice (its very citrusy), a bit of smoky peat, grains, very sweet mild malt . Taste is quite mild, initially very juicy and fruit-sweet, but some bitterness quickly develops - very mild hops, but more than a little is in there - and yes, its sweet-doug yeasty flavoured too. Mouthfeel is a bit acidic and sticky. Not much to look at, but very tasty - would be kick-butt on cask.

Yeast from the bottle may scare some people, however a good drop, pours nice , kind of citrus aroma, with a hoppy flavour.. A nice finish with a hint of bitters, all around a good beer.

imdownthepub (13708) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle conditioned, 375ml. Clear orange amber with well developed head. Nicely balanced beer, though slightly on the sweet side. Fruity soft malts dominate initially, this is where the sweetness lies, then a robust chunky hop gives a good extended flavour. A very drinkable Aussie beer (at last), good stuff.

jgentgesdo (693) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Pours cloudy yellow with thin off-white head that is frothy and rather milky. Nose is clean floral with a rather sharp edge. The flavor is well balanced between yeasty bread flavors, apricot/citrus, and hops flavor with very little bitterness until the end. Rather thin mouthfeel with a hint of soap at the end, not unpleasant. Overall pretty good, and excellent for sessions or with dinner.

MatKool (64) - CANADA - AUG 12, 2005
Pours a cloudy pale-golden color with heaps of carbonation I found. A full bodied flavor with a light fruity, sweetness to it. No bitter aftertaste o remnants of preservatives but more of a yeasty aftertaste. I prefer yeasty over bitter so Coopers Sparkiling Ale was a favorite among my Australian beers during my time there.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
pours hazy orange with a little white head, aromas of sweet malts, hops, and citrus, taste is of carbonation, malt, sweetness, and followed by some bitterness, nothing great here, id say average.

Light hazy yellow with a small white head. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Hoppy and hay-like flavor with a dry light fruity finish.

If you drink Coopers Pale Ale, finish it off and buy a case of Sparkling Ale. Sparkling is more of a classic top fermented ale with lingering fruity overtones and more complex palate than its sibling. Has enough power to cut through a vindaloo, yet wont overpower a fresh prawn....quite a nice balanced beer for all occasions. Good job Coopers.
