Coopers Sparkling Ale

Coopers Brewery

Australasia

It's hard not to chuckle a bit as you empty the contents of the bottle into a glass. There's nothing sparkling about this ale, it's cloudy as all get out. And there's yeast sediment effortlessly making it's way to the bottom of the glass like snowflakes. And it all seems to glow a dirty orange. Is this some kind of sick aussie joke? Hell no it's not. Not sick, and not a joke. This is an incredibly fine ale. Solid ale flavour but with fruity undertones that give it a nice unique flavour. The aftertaste is there but with little bite. Meaning that this beer goes down remarkably smooth. So if you like beer with flavour that you can drink easily and quickly, look for this one. Seems to travel well too, I haven't come across a skunky bottle yet.
