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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
ineedbeer (2121) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Aroma is mostly cracker and biscuit but there is also a bit of a honey note. there is a faint earthy hop character but it is pretty faded. Fairly bready and yeasty. Poured a very cloudy pale gold with a thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. I thought I did a good job of leaving the yeast behind but clearly not. Flavor starts with some slightly sweet cracker and biscuit malt notes. There is also some honey to the flavor but less than in the aroma. A fairly assertive bitterness is present, moderately high compared to the malt profile. Low to medium low hop flavor - earthy and woodsy. Slight astringency in the dry finish. The finish also has a bit of a yeasty flavor. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall this is an alright beer, but I wouldn't call it good. It probably doesn't help that it was 11 months old by the time it reached me. I think I would like a bit yet yeast character and a bit more hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Typical average ale, but name Sparkling is f***ing true. Bubbly gold color, nice aroma and not really strong taste. In taste banana and grapefruit.

Wolfbass (1143) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 22, 2017
Ha un bel colore ramato, ma un poco torbo. Al naso abbastanza fruttato, mentre in bocca ha una buona beva, per niente impegnativa.

matstrange (182) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Almost no head on pouring. The sediment brings it to life and does activate some fizz when it lands in the glass. Lovely orange aroma but doeant overpower the drink. A grassy note and some other citrus are present. Perhaps some biscuit too.

Bamsen78 (5273) - Snderborg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle, 6 months past the BBD. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with some hints of fruit and touches of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and yeast, and some fruity hints. Bitter, not quite pleasant aftertaste with hints of dust and alcohol and some acidic notes. Drinkable but not very enjoyable, esp. because of the disturbing bitterness.

Nevalainen (710) - FINLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Best before 14/8/16. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is caramel, fruity. Taste is dry, notes of hops. Nothing special, but drinkable.
