It's at the stage now after a week where (this is the second bottle I've
cracked) it's bubblinmg, when I bottled it id was creamy frothy stuff, after
a week, poured in a glass it's got loads of C02 (bubble) but no froth now.
Is that normal ? the bubbles soon dissipate once they hit the top.

I sampled a bottle abouut three days ago and the alcohol content was like
drinking a vodka like spirit -  quick rush. Not at all like a beer or malt
whiskey.

But it had more head a few days ago. It's like an effervescent malt
alcoholic drink.  Like a glass of Coca-Cola. Is all going well with me
bottled batch a beer. Will it get better with time and become the beaustiful
Cooper's Bitter I hoped I would get. AFA alcohol content is concerned it's
doing fine but just no froth any more.

Serious now. (IMHO)
If you leave the wort in fermenter too long after it has finished
fermenting & before you bottle it I've found the "head retention" not
very good.

If individual bottles are different, then it could be your sterlising
/ bottle washing / etc procedures.
