COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden-copper ale brewed using American style hops to produce high hop bitterness, flavour and aroma. Using top fermenting ale yeasts, this style is based on the extremely popular Pale Ales that have become a standard of the modern American micro-brewing industry.

330ml bottle. Coppery teak colour with a full caramel coloured foam crown. Sweet aromas of caramel, hops and malt. Smooth on the palate and very easy to drink as it is hoppy and mildly bitter. O good effort and I look forward to trying the rest of the range from Lobethal.

No out of the ordinary pale ale but well rounded and balanced and easy going. Solid quaffer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear reddy amber body with no head. Mainly light caramel showing in both aroma and taste. Not too sure about this beer need to try it again sometime.

hawthorne00 (2546) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2010
Tap. Quite a dark amber for the style with a small beige head. Aroma of nectarines, caramel, pine and kumquats. Creamy texture with a little too much fizz. Taste has some sweetish caramel with touches of stone fruits followed by a firm bitter finish. Good sessionable beer thatís not polished but is balanced.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours ruby with a nice head that quickly fades to a layer. Aroma shows loads of juicy, fruity hops with some piney resin as well. A fair bit of clean malt is present. Lots of caramelised and almost toasty malt flavours show through, but seem almost harsh. Quite prominent bitterness, though the malt still overshadows. Carbonation is too high.

davidm (1943) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Great beer. Aromas of caramel, cherries, and pine. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness gently taking over. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark amber, with a frothy head.

Stew41 (1753) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2010
Solid beer. Works the style well, particularly on the nose with great cut of hops and mildly caramalised malts. Slightly more aggressive to taste as some IPA-like metallic flavours come through. Quite fizzy, perhaps to a mild fault.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 15, 2009
Draught at Kings Head Hotel, Adelaide. Dark amber with a small off white head. Nice fruity aroma of lychee and citrus and biscuit malt. The flavour is bursting with juicy hop flavours made up of tropical fruit and a good malt backbone of biscuit malt gives support. Smooth and bitter in the mouthfeel with a noticeable resiny hop presence. An extremely quaffable pale ale.

wtf i’ve seen stouts paler than this "pale" ale - well only one really (that sri lankan one whatever it was called) but if this was daylight the sun is definitely behind the hills already. appearance = 7 pm. aroma = 7 am after it has rained in a pine forest. and perhaps the campers are toasting some bread for breakfast - it’s probably estonian black rye bread - and have just halved a grapefruit with brown sugar. flavour is fat, earthy/malty and sweet and then citric and bitter. like arrogant bastard watered down, at least in the dark crystal malt and yank hops combination. clean and flavoursome, but just not the sort of beer i’m into - similar to moobrew’s dark ale with some extra body.

330ml bottle, Bottled April 2008. First thing I notice about this badboy is the colour of the body! Deep amber with a creamy off-white head...is this an American-style Amber ale? My suspicions are only confirmed when I take a whiff; big ripe stonefruits peach/nectarine, rich crystal malts toffee, caramel, mild roastiness, some grass in the background. Mouthfeel is fantastic, creamy moderate carbonation, excellent balance of malt sweetness and hop sharpness, lingering for a good while. Big hop character on the body, of the likes are very uncommon in Aussie APA clones; pine, lemon zest, peach pip, with a grainy crystal toffee sweetness standing up to the tyraid. Finishes the slightest bit astrigent with a bold bitterness and lingering hop tang. Fantastic! Very similiar to homebrewed American Amber ales iíve tried. As far as large scale Aussie-made APAís go, this could well give Little Creatures a run for its money!
