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.

Citrussy and hoppy all in one blast. Quite refreshing and crisp, would be perfect for a warm summers day.

humlelala (1012) - DENMARK - NOV 9, 2013
(33cl from Tight; BBD: Feb 21st 2014) Pours semi clear golden with white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is subdued, faded hops with hints of citrus fruits. Oily texture, medium bodied, soft carbonation and slightly dry finish. Flavour has a moderate bitterness. Ok, but most likely too old as the aroma is nothing like the galaxy driven pale ales I’ve brewed myself.

sad to leave a poor rating, but that’s what happens when you put hoppy beer into a bottle. you kill it.

Refreshing & very drinkable, this beer delivers a fresh, zesty hit that encourages another bottle immediately after finishing the first. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (1769) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
330ml bottle from Drinker’s Paradise, London. Has a promising fragrant elderflower aroma, continuing into the taste with a vague pot pourri to the citrus. Very nice.

This crazy beer poured a cloudy orange colour, with two fingers of white head. The head slowly faded to nothing. There was no carbonation to speak of. The smell was sweet with a touch of citrus. I loved the taste of this beer, it tasted rich & earthy with a lingering bitterness. I’d heard a lot about this beer & it lived up to it’s reputation.
