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!!

Another Aussie favourite. Clear, golden beer. Little to no head like most beers down under, but a refreshing flavour.

An excellent beer. Particularly appropriate for summer, a very floral nose with late hits of citrus. Taste is lighter and less dense than other similar ales. The real strength of this beer is the subtle combination of aromas with a light, fleeting taste of lemon. Not a winter nights beer, but delicious for sunny days.

Light, golden color when poured. Has a strong but not overpowering fruity smell. A really good mix between fruitiness, hops and malts for taste. Is light on for bitterness, and is overall very smooth. A very refreshing, easy to drink beer.

330ml bottle @ Australian - Sydney. Pale golden colour poured with a thin head. Fruity nose with some grassy notes too. Relatively dry, nice hop balance. Nice finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2009
Tasted 11/09/2009. 330ml bottle, 6 of them to be sure. Not a bad wee golden ale with tropical fruit, stonefruit, and a low key. Clean with a nice balance of malt with hop flaour and bitterness (but not quite enough of any of those characters!). Improves a lot as it warms and lets out soe of those flavours.

Bottle. Clear yellow color. Small head with medium carbonation. Small bubbles. Weak citrus aroma. Citrus and graphefruits taste, lightly bittter. Nice, would buy again.

Dec 31, ’09. Tap at some beachside bar in Sydney. I’m becoming a little creatures fanboy, I fear. I really quite like this one and have say it’s sorely underrated here. Lovely, easy-drinking golden ale, beautiful in a clear and sparkling way if you like that sort of thing, nice white head. Rather heavily carbonated. A well-blended combination of passionfruit hop flavors and biscuit malts; extremely drinkable with enough going on to remain interesting. As I drink this thing, all I can do is think how superbly crafted the beer is within its style. Lovely.

4.5%ABV. Golden Ale. Tapped out light gold. 5°SRM. Nose has some bright hoppy aromas of pine, citrus. Mouthfeel is sudsy-soapy. There are palate flavors of nicely roasted malt with barley loaves, oats and nutty rich flavors. Finish is medium with clean hoppy flavors of grass, fresh pine with not much herbaceous aggression. Very nice. Goes on Favorites List!
