Bottle -- Pours a pale yellow with a largish fluffy white head with excellent retention. Lots of lacing. Light malty aroma. Watery palate. Crisp malty flavour with some sweetness up front and a bitter finish. A simple, straight forward brew with nothing at all unpleasant about it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had just finished moving a tonne of soil from the front of the house to the back. This was on a Monday after doing a good 10 hours at work and so it was more of a ’yes dear’ type of thing than a full on burst of macho strutting. Anyway it took about an hour and a bit which gave the six pack of Little Creatures in the fridge ample time to cool down. A lot colder than I would normally drink them but were they sublime. So I had two of these and thought I’d go a third when I spotted this on the shelf. Ah yes, one of the beers I picked up in Perth on my last visit. I’m sure on its own it is a much better beer but in these circumstances it was blown away. Very subtle malt and delicate hop aromas and flavours but quite soapy however which did detract from the taste. Altogether too subtle perhaps, even in the right setting and mood.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Though the petty label leaves much to be desired I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It was just a simple, light summer refresher, as straight as an engineers rule, but oh-so easy to drink. Into a tall pilsner glass from the bottle. Palest, palest yellow in body with champagne-like carbonation rising up to surface below a loose, pillowy white crown that lasted and legged-well down the sides. Faintly vegetal aroma showing a mixed bag of leafy herbs, sweet/sour ripe lemons and just a distant whiff of grain. Honestly all rode on the flavour as everything else seemed questionable. In the mouth it is very light and very, very delicate. Again some distant grains in the flavour, slight sweetness upfront only playing second-fiddle to some lovely, spicy hops that dominate all the way into the sallow. Cracked lemon-pepper, damp grass and mint leaves, and some bitter vine-clippings dance across the tongue to hit an apex before a sourish, bitter hop swallow that deserves another. Quite zingy overall, not unbalanced - quite well made in fact - and very, very clean to taste. Nice!!! ( 33cL, 30/11/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

Almost golden body with an average white head. Nose was better than the Wernesgruner though that doesn’t say a lot. A little soapy in the taste, mild bitterness, mainly taste the malts just needs more bite.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear golden with a lacy white head. Smells malty and herby with a floral accent. Sweet taste with light bitterness. On the whole, quite smooth, but with a crisp beginning. A pleasant perfumey Pils, but too sweet for my taste. Thanks to MortizF!
