Hazy blond body with a thin white head. Malty nose with a touch of honey. Palate is okay, but a bit chalky. Good carbonation...very bright. A fairly good tasting beer. Honey malt sweetness up front. Finishes dry with a nice punch of sour citrus. Quite drinkable.
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) Asing1950 (4) - - JUN 19, 2017 does not count
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!!!

I’m trying my first ever Australian Sparkling Ale today. And ofcourse it’s the one from Coopers Brewery. It comes in at 5.8% ABV. A sparkling ale is a top-fermented golden colored ale originated in Adelaide, Australia. This pours a cloudy golden body with quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The aroma is fruity, and slightly hoppy – I’m not getting a whole lot out of it otherwise. The taste is quite malty with some yeasty and zesty undertones. There’s some fruityness coming through at the end though! To be honest I’m quite disappointed – I maybe expected some crazy carbonation with a stinging mouthfeel. But all in all it’s almost just like a regular golden ale. Very solid but nothing to write home about. Rubin77 (2028) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 3, 2017

Pro mě hodně dobré zajímavé pivo s příjemnou chutí, typickou pro Belgii. Zajímavý zážitek. z87 (48) - Frydek-Mistek, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 27, 2017
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. Dervock (1321) - AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2017
Bottle - pours gold with a white head. Aroma is a mix of cereal and sweet malt. Taste is drynwith a building malt finish. Wolfbass (1158) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 22, 2017
Ha un bel colore ramato, ma un poco torbo. Al naso č abbastanza fruttato, mentre in bocca ha una buona beva, per niente impegnativa. gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2017
From old tasting notes. Hazy, bubbly yellow gold color. Bubbly white head. Fruity malt nose. Tangy fruity malt flavor with hints of banana and grapefruit. Dryish hop finish and aftertaste.
