Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 112: Coopers Sparkling Ale
Beer
dewhitton
Pours a slightly cloudy, golden yellow The head is large and bubbly and fades away slowly. Lots of visible carbonation

First sip: Mildly malty, slightly citrusy, a little bready and yeasty (from the sediment, I suppose) with a moderate hoppy bitterness that lingers. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with carbonation tingles on the tongue.

Coopers have reduced the amount of sediment quite a lot from when I first started drinking this ale. Back Then, a "wrong" pour would dump a load of sediment into the glass and the beer would go opaque. Even so, it was yummy then and it is still yummy now. I think Sparkling Ale was my the first adventure away from the mass-market lagers I used to drink, and got me on to the road to English Pales and Real Ales. I realised there was a whole world of beer out there, and I started trying other styles.

I regret nothing!

That looks and sounds Rather Tasty to me Batty, I'll see if I can find a bottle or two in the Ozzie section at BevMo this weekend :)

Coopers do a nice range of ales. I have a bunch in the fridge to try - and no time to try them properly. 8(

btw, are you able to download the dropbox file from the previous entry?

I should hop on a plane and assist you in finding the time to enjoy those beers :)

I'll keep an eye for Coopers here, and let you know what I discover.

They do a Pale Ale for export, because it has no sediment in it. Keep an eye out.

Yes, do fly over! The days are hot and the beers are cold. Stay for Christmas! Christmas in Summer is the best!
