3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a large lasting head.
Nose shows some herbal, grassy hops with soft sweet clean malt underneath.
The herbal earthy hops continue as a flavour backed by sweet bready and cookie dough-like malt.
Carbonation is a little high.
No real faults, but I’ve never found EKG to be a particularly interesting hop variety.

Golden Ale? Why is this a deep amber brown colour? bzzzz incorrect. This is an ESB, maybe a heavy bitter. Big malty body with caramel and bread giving way to a light bitter finish of flowery hops. Quite one dimensional and straight forward.

Little creatures came up and changed tha game
Pale ale was off the chain
Bought out by Lion Nathan and what a shame
The leash was tightened and our palates waz pained -

Tried at Little Creatures both on tap and handpump also out of the bottle. Clear, light golden/amber body, a touch of sweetness on the start of the aroma then the hops and touch of crystal. In the taste light pleasant bitterness, light caramel and earthy hop notes. Not too adventurous but reliable enough.

Bottle. Clear amber with a large white head. Pears, light caramel, biscuit, some flowers and earth. Taste is then unexpectedly quite peppery upfront with some earthy bitterness prominent too. Very light malts are barely sweet. Far too carbonated mouthfeel. After sitting for a while pear and light biscuits emerge and the finish is more dry and earthy than astringent. Cries out to be served from a handpump.

On tap at Harts Pub in Sydney. While I agree that this isn’t the best single batch Little Creatures have made, it is still very good. Seems very much an English Pale Ale, fruity but muted hops, strong caramel malt. Drank this until the keg went off.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Does not deliver like their other single batches. Too light and boring. After reading the description on the bottle, i was expecting something along the lines of a hoppy ale and, to be fair, it does have a pleasant hop backing, but it is as minimul as can be. Pours a light amber with a medium white head which disappears quickly to nothing. Aromas of floral hops, banana and sweet malts. Flavours of apple, dried hops, sweet malts. Seems to have some underlying peanuts and cashews in there. Palate is as thin as water. So disappointing considering there single batches have been pretty decent to date
