COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love our Pale Ale. Many of us from the brewery have made pilgrimages around the world in search of great varieties of this wonderful style. Surprisingly, there are no great secrets to brewing this type of ale but there are most definitely no great shortcuts. Bag loads of Cascade and Galaxy whole hop flowers that we source direct from hop growers in Victoria, Tassie and the US are thrown at this beer, creating an intense citrus and grapefruit aroma and flavour that we balance with a careful selection of specialty malts and a local pale malt made to our own specifications. Preservative and additive free our Pale Ale is live-yeast conditioned in bottles and kegs for unmatched freshness and character. From brewing to release, a batch of pale ale takes about six weeks, allowing for two weeks conditioning in the bottle after packaging. No artificial additives are included, just great ingredients. Pour it into a glass to enjoy it at its best! The beer’s character is driven by the use of fresh whole hop flowers. Hop Flowers are carefuly selected that are bursting with aroma and contain all the essential oils and acids that deliver an uniqe flavour experience. Drink a few pints of this beer and you’ll soon become one of us…a certified "hophead" craving those crisp citrus flavours of grapefruit and passionfruit and maybe a bit of honey, all backed up with a good balance of bitterness. If you’re wondering what on earth malt or hops actually are then click on the two hop characters to the left and find out more. It’s not just the hops that make Little Creatures Pale Ale what it is though. Selected malts are kilned in small batches to our specifications and are used exlusively in our pale ale. Two different yeasts are used to both ferment and bottle condition the beer. The latest technology and equipment is used to maintain absolute quality control and one of the main ingredients in the pale ale has got to be the amount of passion that it takes to produce a seriously good beer...we live for it! From brewing to release, a batch of pale ale takes about six weeks, allowing for two weeks conditioning in the bottle after packaging. No artificial preservatives or additives are included, just great ingredients.

From a bottle. Mild fruity aroma, crisp hoppy flavours, mild bitterness, atypical pale ale. Not that that is bad, I liked it.

snowdog140 (32) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
This is a pale ale, and delivers exactly as one should. A brilliant golden amber colour with little head, a sweet but not overpowering hoppy aroma and a taste that again is strong in hops but not so overpowering that its undrinkable. Leaves a very clean palate as well and is easily drinkable, so glad I bought two bottles of this.

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy pale amber color with medium creamy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, bread and honey. Taste starts with moderate sweet and smooth maltiness, following is fresh fruity and herbal, mouthfeel is pretty dry, while finish is medium bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Finally, good Aussie brew...

ddaedalus (2) - - FEB 22, 2014 does not count
Aroma is dominated by the hops, with grapefruit, grass and citrus notes as well as a slight malty character. These carry through to the taste profile, a well balanced sweetness to go with the hop character and alcohol content. Medium bitter finish is slightly harsh, with a pine character. Disappointing head retention, but from bottle to glass on a hot day will do that, otherwise looks great cloudy copper/ orange with right white head. Great beer.

borre_m (220) - NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
The aroma is clearly from lots of American hops, citrus and pine. Color is slighly cloudy and golden. The bottle says pale ale, but to me it has almost enough hops to call it an IPA. But with an ABV of 5.2% it is clearly a pale ale. Body is very light, not a lot of malt flavor. Easy to drink. I really enjoyen this beer, might be one of my favorite and would be happy to have a few more of these.
