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.

Bottle from Earl. Thanks! Pours cloudy light orange to amber color with thin white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is nice hops, orange, perhaps hint of some spices. Flavor is hops, cardboard. Thin body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry aftertaste.

Zlotta (3505) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2017
0.375 l bottle from 'Bier & Beer', best before June 2018. Slightly hazy, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, floral and a little fruity aroma of grains, lychee, some honey and a touch of yeast. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, floral, grassy and a little fruity taste of lots of grains, straw, some honey and a touch of citrus, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy-dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Okay golden ale. Dry and a little grassy. Has an earthy, strangely empty finish. Tried for the first time back in 2009.

PotjeBier (3505) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle @ Drover's Dog (1, East). Deep golden color, just slightlt hazy. White head, not much and short retention. Aroma's: herbal hops, light malts, light spice. Retronasal it's malty, grainish, light fruit and light bitter. Flavor is light caramel sweet , a bit fruity, light bitter. Light medium bodied. Mild bitter finish. Bottle could have been a bit fresher (just days from the bb date), but I still liked it, as I did when I occasionally had this in the late 80's.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours cloudy, trying to get as much out without disturbing the pellet. Golden red in colour with bubbles but poor head retention. Smells like my early failed attempts at brewing from a kit. Yeasty with a fruity undertone. I love this beer! Nothing complicated. Marmite flavour maltyness, nicely balanced, too 'sparkling' maybe a hint of earthy bitterness. Lovely simple quirky beer that I wish pubs sold for the session.

This is a very simple honest tasting beer. Basically a pumped up pale ale and for me it ticks all the boxes including price. It shows what can be done with one one hop some good malt and a good yeast. Its been around for a long while and still stands tall as a a great beer.

This is what I always thought beer should taste like, plain and simple. The beer, though, is neither plain nor simple, but full of taste and malty as a good glass of ale should be. No BS to give about aromas or nose. Just good, consistent flavor and satisfaction.

Espuma blanca que se disipa rápidamente, color naranja oscuro y turbio con bastantes burbujas brotando constantemente, aroma ligero a lúpulo, sabor suave con notas amargas

jann3 (396) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Hazy golden with a small head. Malty aroma with fruity notes. Taste is mostly malty but has some dryish grapefruit flavour and a hint of alcohol. Tasty and well balanced brew. (375ml bottle from a random liquor store in Sydney)

Love this beer !!! I found out about Coopers Sparkling Ale over forty years ago and even the taste is definitely "unique" once you have tried this beer you will want to come back for more. Excellent taste and the "cloudy" colour adds to the appeal!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
