COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Little Creatures “Bright” is a top fermented uniquely new Australian ale. As the name suggests, “Bright” is a filtered beer with a striking golden clarity in the glass. We use 4 luscious malts including Pale, Carapils, Wheat and Vienna. The beer is full flavoured whilst soft and easy on the palate making it very approachable. The alcohol is 4.5% alc/vol. Bitterness is slightly lower than our highly charged Pale Ale and is accentuated enough to balance the smooth, malty character. The hop characteristics in “Bright” is derived from the use of highly aromatic New Zealand B Saaz Flowers as well as varieties from the North West of USA. Clean, distinctive, full-flavoured, smooth and very more-ish!!

davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle 330ml. Nicely hopped. Aroma is intensely floral. Flavour is sweet, with bitterness at the end. Medium-bodied, and nice mouthfeel. Dark yellow, with a thin head that ends up disappearing.

Tasted 11/09/2009. 330ml bottle, 6 of them to be sure. Not a bad wee golden ale with tropical fruit, stonefruit, and a low key. Clean with a nice balance of malt with hop flaour and bitterness (but not quite enough of any of those characters!). Improves a lot as it warms and lets out soe of those flavours.

Pours a light golden colour, not much head. Aroma is something like the tropical fruit section of the supermarket; slight wafts of mixed fruit. The flavour is of tropical fruit too, sweet and slightly tangy which is increased by eating salty foods. Perhaps passionfruit or tamarillo? Could have more flavour for sure, but very nice, easy to drink, and would go great at a bbq.

Bottle. Pours amber with thin, short lasting head. Grassy, herbal, citrussy aroma. Flavour is flowery, herbal...Quite high carbonation... Easy drinker...

Amber pour with a tiny head. Aroma is of grassy hops and some sweet underlying malt. Flavour is quite green and hoppy. Mild, slightly metallic bitterness. Too highly carbonated. Easy to drink but a bit boring.

330ml Bottle from my local. Straw colour with not much head. Aroma of floral and fruity hops. Flavour Grassy, Flowery, with a bit of grain, hop flavour is very much present but not well formed. Body is light with high carbonation. Moderate bitterness on the finish. Overall, an easy drinking beer, but could haven been much improved with more malt character.

Pours nice golden, with white head. Floral hop aroma. Palate a little bland with a mild bitterness. Just not enough flavour for me.

3.2
DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden, thick white head leaving ropes of lace. Fresh floral fruit hop aroma. Clean grainy palate with floral hop highlights and a nice bitter finish. Nothing overly complex, but solid execution of a tasty session offering.

12oz bottle, at Bondi Beach AU, again, a seriously boring beer, its easy to drink yes, and almost flavorless which makes me think the aussies are afraid of a little flavor in their beer. I could slam a bunch of these to my face though.
