COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Following on from the India Pale Ale earlier in the year, us brewers have been debating what to do next. The result of these passionate discussions – our version of a Brown Ale! For this one we focused on Australian hops, in particular Tasmanian Hallertau and Cascade, Topaz and Galaxy, which have been added in four additions in the brewing process – early and late kettle, whirlpool and hopback. The result – a beer with a fantastic hop aroma combined with a punchy bitterness. There is plenty of malt in the back to balance out the hops including pale ale, munich, crystal, rye and roast malt. 5.4% alcohol.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours bronzed brown with a good sized yellowish-tinged white head. Aroma is toasty dark malts with prominent tropical fruity hops. Palate is nicely balanced between the sweet malt base and the fruity lingering bitter hop finish. Easily drinkable smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and lowish carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Cracking looking beer, beautiful dark amber colouring, with a biege head and a moderate carbonation. Aroma is a sweet barley. Smooth to the taste, and leaves a sour aftertaste. If it has a bad note, it is very, VEY bitter on the after taste.

Deep amber/light brown colour. Aroma really packs a nice hoppy aroma, quite complex with good malt there too. Palate backs this up with medium to full body, sweet caramel malt and clean bitterness. I’m really enjoying this beer, great flavour would definitely order again. On tap, Wheatsheaf Hotel, Adelaide.

Kind of unusual ’Brown Ale’ and another jem from LCB. Well hopped and malty. Worth it but never rate beer on price anyway.

RyansRatings (43) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2010
Pours a perfect deep onion brown colour, with ample off white foam. Gently carbonated, but that’s about all an Ale should be. The nose shows sweet & spicy hops, clean as a whistle. The palate is initially opulent and obscenely malty, before a reasonably bitter kick towards the back. Fantastic style & execution. The best beer I’ve had from this brewery.

Nice amber browny color on pour. Great tasting beer well balanced with hops and malts. Need to try this one again.

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours a crystal clear amber brown with a firm beige head. One of the most visually appealing beers that I have seen. Signature American hop aroma of Little Creatures, with a stronger malt profile than most of their other brews. Roasty chocolate malt flavour, sweet malt, bitter chocolate and fruity hops. Very light body that makes this beer very sessionable. I would have liked a little more malt complexity however. Just feels it’s lacking something that could make this great

pours a deep clear brown with an average off white head. roasted malts with a really tasty caramel malt on the finish. quite a tasty drop
