A bold and generously flavoured Ale. Coopers Sparkling Ale is brewed using quality raw materials and century old brewing techniques, which produce a complex flavour which is smooth enough to be very enjoyable with intense fruity and floral characters and displays a crisp bitterness and a full malt character.
This beer is a deep amber colour and pours with a lively effervescence producing a solid head. The pronounced cloudiness which is evident is due to the presence of yeast, which is carried through the fermenting stage to finally produce the bottle conditioning and natural carbonation.
The aroma has a strong malt character with strong esters from the Coopers Ale yeast. The initial flavour imparts a strong malt character with strong hop bitterness. The mid palate displays some toast malt flavour and some sweetness and the finish is well balanced and displays a mild maltiness in the aftertaste which is magnified by the carbonation and a well-balanced after bitterness.
The methods used in both the brewhouse and fermentation area are unique to this style of beer and have hardly changed since it was first produced in 1862.
