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!!

Davros (2831) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2009
Amber pour with a tiny head. Aroma is of grassy hops and some sweet underlying malt. Flavour is quite green and hoppy. Mild, slightly metallic bitterness. Too highly carbonated. Easy to drink but a bit boring.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours with an average dense frothy white head over a clear yellow-amber body. Resinous-grapefruit aroma and slight background malt sweetness. Pretty straightforward, but still nice-especially from the tap.

[330 ml bottle, Peckhams (Bruntsfield), Edinburgh] After many years of only being able to find their Pale Ale – excellent as it is – finally saw a different bottle from Freo’s Little Creatures Brewery. As you’d expect for a bright ale, it pours brilliantly clear and gold with a centimetre high head. Small amount of rising carbonation. Aroma is hops, corn and a faint whiff of malt. Palate is mild hop bitterness with a metallic lagery aftertaste. Average but drinkable, it’s essentially a lager and I’ll be reverting back to their Pale Ale next time, no question [13082010]

Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Golden colour, mediumsized foamy white head. Aroma is mild fruits, some floral and sweet malty notes along with soe slight wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, wooden, quite bready, but still sweet malty, notes as well.

330ml bottle, best before November 2011. Clear gold with a thin white head and decenr condition. Slightly sherbety fruit aroma. More citric on the palate. Clean and easygoing. Pleasant enough but nothing spectacular.

Sevenlee (1762) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma is caramel with some grain and flowery hops. Taste is sweet malt, hints of fruit and a light bitter finish. Not bad.

330ml bottle poured into a standard ale glass. Subdued hop aroma and fairly light, but balanced palate; it would make a great BBQ or lawn mower beer. -Rated via BeerBuddy
