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.

ineedbeer (1982) - 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

I bought this beer at Amstein and I drank it at home with Massimo. I think that it is a basical ale, not extraordinary but it is a good one to drink with yours friends, enjoying the life. The color is orange and brown, troubled. The carbonation is regular, thin and white foam. The taste is malty, notes of hop, discreet for an ale, notes of plum, a bit watery, regular.

Bottle. Very dry hop aroma. Very dry, quite bitter and fairly clean tasting. The hop driven flavour dominates and makes it a one trick pony.

toscanoigor (153) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - DEC 10, 2016
Da garrafa: cerveja marrom clara, turva, com alguns sedimentos, espuma de boa formao. Aroma pouco intenso e interessante, ressaltado principalmente o malte, um pouco doce e um leve frutado final. Sabor de caramelo, frutas (damasco, principalmente, mas um toque de pera) e leveduras, com um amargor bem suave no final, tudo bem equilibrado, quase nada se destaca sobre as outras coisas, o que bem interessante. Final seco, boa carbonatao (um pouco frisante), deixando bem gostosa de beber.

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is herbal, grassy. Taste is very grassy, cut wet grass, herbal lozenge. Reminded me of a dank Pils but not as buttery or refined.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
- brackig orangene Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Banane, Pfirsich, Erde, Torf, Brot und Heu - ziemlich sprudelige Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist geschmacklich sofort geprgt von einer leicht modrigen Torfnote - das im Mittelteil hervorkommende Malz wird schnell von dieser Note wieder erstickt - bevor gegen Ende die Kruter etwas vershnend hervorsprieen knnen setzt ein metallischer Kick dem Ganzen ein unappetitliches Ende Fazit: Man ist irgendwie froh, wenn das Glas leer ist !

Aroma; berries, pale malts, grass, berries. Look; diminishing pearl head, clear golden body. Taste; pale malts, hops, fermented berries, grass - leading to a finish with roasted malts and caramellic berries. Feel; normal body, fine carbonation. Overall; a fruity taste with roasted elements.

Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has spices, astringent grainy notes, and a bit of creamy vanilla. Sweet and a bit spice forward in taste. Prickly carbonation. Medium body.
