Coopers Sparkling Ale

Coopers Sparkling Ale is a tasty little brew out of Australia.  It is brewed by Coopers Brewery and hails from Regency Park, South Australia.  It is a strong ale and is bottle fermented.  Sold in 375mL bottles (which, incidentally, is an excellent size for a beer), C.S.A. contains 5.8% alcohol.  It pours a cloudy orange, and is topped by a thick white head.  There is a yeasty aroma, accented with a sweet, fruity quality.  It has a bready flavour that is pretty close to a wheat beer.  C.S.A. has a fizzy, cider-like quality that leaves the lips tingling after each sip.  It is more sweet than bitter and has notes of apple and pear.

This is a pretty nice brew.  It's a bit on the yeasty side, but drinkable nonetheless.  An interesting beer that will appeal to a wide range of drinkers.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
