Coopers Sparkling Ale

Coopers Sparkling Ale

Ratebeer 3.05 51st percentile
Beer Advocate B

I picked this up as a single at the Cook Street CBAW Store. I love randoms singles.

Taste +4

It is not often that I like a light coloured ale. This one had an inviting nose of apples, cookie dough and lemon zest. Every sip was crisp and refreshing with apples and other pale fruits. After that, it was off to visit a slightly spicy and earthy hop ending. The ample carbonation only enhanced the cleansing finish.

Aftertaste +1

The ending was more than I expected. You were hit with this mash of slightly grapefruit, ripe banana and clove spice.

Alcohol Content 0 5.8%

You could notice the booze taste but it added to the crispness.

Value +1

This was a very refreshing light ale.

Ingame Enhancement +1

No game tonight, just drank beer in bed. Good beer, rest and beer score enhancements are well within my rights.

Overall 7/10

Perfect for the light beer drinker who think that they all take the same.
