COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Little Creatures “Bright” is a top fermented uniquely new Australian ale. As the name suggests, “Bright” is a filtered beer with a striking golden clarity in the glass. We use 4 luscious malts including Pale, Carapils, Wheat and Vienna. The beer is full flavoured whilst soft and easy on the palate making it very approachable. The alcohol is 4.5% alc/vol. Bitterness is slightly lower than our highly charged Pale Ale and is accentuated enough to balance the smooth, malty character. The hop characteristics in “Bright” is derived from the use of highly aromatic New Zealand B Saaz Flowers as well as varieties from the North West of USA. Clean, distinctive, full-flavoured, smooth and very more-ish!!

Disclaimer - best by date was about 18 months before I tried. Damnit if I didn’t notice that at the store. Nonetheless, here goes the review. Pours a golden yellow with white head and floaty sediment towards the end of the pour (don’t think that is supposed to be there). Smell is like a slight old pilsner. A little funky saazz hops, actually pretty nice to be honest. The taste is where the wheels start to come off. Has the the reminents of the saaz, but not in a good way. A little too sour and funky with some offputting aftertaste. I probably would have liked this because of the pilsner like aspects, but can’t go very high. Stupid store

Bright gold colour, with hay and citrus on the nose. Creamy and a little sweet on the palate, but with good crispness. Not hugely complex, but right up my street.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
Light golden coloured body with a soapy white head and a bunch of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of honey and flowers with a touch of light hops and malt. Light-bodied; Pungent hops up front with a decent amount of malt and a more refined and airy floral and herbal note toward the end. Aftertaste is very mild and is mostly dry and refreshing rather than flavourful. Overall, not a bad beer, just not too much flavours and a very mild and simple beer. I sampled this pint on draught at Cookie in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 02-January-2010.
