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.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
Bronze body with a cream head. Clean and tasty. Sugar, pine, lemon hops. A little drying in the finish. Damn good for an Australian micro. Sampled on draught at the Australian Hotel in Sydney, Australia.

Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2004
Off-Amber colouring with a nice thick head. Dry, bitter, floral and citric all mesh up to a flavoursome brew. Something you cannot deny yourself.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2004
Bottle: Poured quite a quite cloudy but beautiful orange with a large head that had somelength. Good lacing. Lemony mango aroma with some dired apricot notes. Great hop aroma. Flavour displayed some matured malts and a great refreshing tang. Good body. Excellent beer, definitley Australia’s best at this point.

As a die hard fan of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale--I’ve just found my new best friend down under. Lots of hops on the aroma....love the heavy hand and the signature of the NA Yak hops. Plenty of malt to balance out a long crisp finish. Dry...this is drop goes great with any food you can put beside it.

SHD (17) - Palm Harbor, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Possibly the best West Aussie beer that has founds its way to my bar. Wonderful aroma with deep flavor - whether with food or not, this will please.

thesonofdad (5) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2004 does not count
Flavoursome - powerfully citrussy and fruitty. Smooth, very much a red wine beer - best drunk with food as a compliment.

Full of flavor - slightly fruity undertones - golden color - tasty and smooth.

madquacker (1094) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2004
Rich citrus aromas predominate. How come it took me so long to try this. Great depth and flavour. Will be difficult to revert to a standard lager after this. Not cheap but good value.

Every glass is a pleasure. The aroma is magnificent, hops and flowers, full flavoured bitter flavour finishing to a smooth texture on the tongue. My favourite by a long way.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2004
cloudy amber-orange colour with a nice head and lace, robust hoppy aroma with notes of apricot, flowers and cream, medium-bodied with a solid bitterness, the finish is long, hoppy and dry - a very well-made and deeply balanced beer
