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!!

Machalel (32) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Appearance: Very light and clear gold colour. Small amount of white head (1 cm), quickly disappearing in around 10-15 seconds. I would have rated it higher if it wasn’t for the lack of head retention. Aroma: The first thing that hit me was passionfruit. A bit of citrus, apple, and honey afterwards. Very vibrant and pleasing. Taste: Quite different from what I was expecting from the aroma. A slight amount of honey and very mild citrus, but the main body of it was a sweet, crisp yeasty taste, with a slightly mineral-y aftertaste. A disappointment after the vibrant and ’bright’ bursts of aroma beforehand. Mouthfeel: Light body and a bit sharp. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Very easy to drink, although after finishing the bottle, I felt like a second wouldn’t have been as pleasant. Definitely one for summer, or to help introduce macro-drinkers to other styles.

Shark_Pants (146) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2013
Pint bottle poured into a pewter stein. Fairly small head that dissipates quickly. Aroma citrus, pot pourri, cane syrup. Citrus up front in the taste, then the lightly toasted malts and sweetness open up. Good session beer for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madquacker (1026) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2006
After the LC version of a pils and my confusion as to what a "bright ale" was I had low expectations of this. Nice head and golden colour with little carbonation. Citrus and sherbert flavours over a peach base. Complex flavours but not unbalanced. Will go back for another.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle. A pale golden beer with a white head. The aroma is light caramel malt, and floral hops, so is the taste. Medium body with a floral finish. Good summer beer!

Pyobon (891) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2007
Bottle. Golden yellow with loose white head that disappears quickly. Very pleasant aroma - floral, tropical fruit (passion fruit) and hops. Palate is watery with moderate carbonation. The flavour is good but doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. It has the floral fruity foretaste with plenty of hops in the finish. A nice beer, but a little disappointing in flavour and palate.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 Golden, light floral, honeyish aroma. Earthy w mellow tartness and a hint of bitterness. Again, slight honeyish sweetness. Decent, quaffable brew. Tap @ Montes, Alice Springs.

A toned down little creatures pale, but still quite floral and bitter. Aroma is of grass and flowers. Well balanced in the mouth. Good summer drinking, If you want a nice balanced beer that can be found at a lot of relatailers.

M_Sack (336) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2013
Tap. Light gold, good head that slowly dissipates and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and a sweetish malt. Light, refreshing citrus flavours with a decent malt background. Good session beer on a warm afternoon.
