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.

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.

Cerveza de alta nubosidad con un buen carácter frutal en nariz y boca. Fermentación muy limpia. Gran carbonatación.

Happy to try the ( only ? ) Original Australian Sparkling ale. Educative reasons, but I do hope it's to be enjoyable on its own as well. Pours darker blonde, to light amber. Very clear. No head. Smell is low to medium low intensity, mild maltyness. Bit of caramel. No hoparoma, no yeast profile. Taste is malty, mild caramel, some white bready notes as well. Shows light signs of oxidation in this given example ( best by 11/02/2018 ) medium to low intensity on the taste profile. Yeast addition makes the beer very, very cloudy. Loads of yeast in the sediment ! It makes the overall taste more full, tad fruity indeed. Still on the bitter side in the aftertaste, long lasting. Nice ale, but I can understand why geeks dont psych out about this.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2017 Hazy brown/yellow pour. Smell is dish soapy lemon, some yeast and malt. Taste pretty much the same. Thin to medium bodied. Can't say it's a bad beer, but what it is then....sorry, couldn't tell ya.

Sorry but really not a fan if this brew from coopers, the initial taste just didn’t do it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (10004) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 29, 2017
Bottle from a Coles Liqourland, Melbourne. Poured a clear straw colour with a short-lived fizzy white head and plenty of bubbles. The aroma is skunky cardboard malt, light woody hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry crisp, woody, light floral hop bitter palate and a lingering dry bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Zlotta (3820) - 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 (3734) - 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.
