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!!

Panzerfaust (877) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUL 23, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Pours a clear, britlliant and sparkling golden color. Head is white and shows medium retention, leaving a nice lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, fruity and flowery. Shows notes of pine, grapefruit, perfume and orange peel. Very close to LC Pale Ale but a bit lighter. Flavor is lightly bittersweet with a citrusy grapefruit note from the cascade hops. But this is not even half the flavor of LCPA. Too light and too much water. Light to medium body, lagerish. High carbonation, watery texture. It’s crisp and refreshing but I expected much more. Chalky finish and slightly fruity aftertaste. A watered down version of LCPA and a ladies summer beer..

Thanks a lot to<a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-7208.htm> Sully for this beer

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle: I didn’t think this was too bad. Clear gold with a fluffy white head. A strange combination of citrusy hop and metalic hop aromas over an apricot-like pilsner malt note. Kind of grows on you. Sadly, in the mouth this turns out to be a well made but incredibly boring and cheap pale lager equivalent. Its only redeeming feature is a pleassant piney hop presence.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 12 Jun 2006 - Sweet, soft fruit-hop aroma. Clear amber colour, low head and poor suds lacing. Simple light fruit-hop flavour. Light tangy hop malt finish.

Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2007
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of straw and flowery hoppy notes. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops, giving it a good bitter finish.

jgb9348 (6590) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
Light golden coloured body with a soapy white head and a bunch of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of honey and flowers with a touch of light hops and malt. Light-bodied; Pungent hops up front with a decent amount of malt and a more refined and airy floral and herbal note toward the end. Aftertaste is very mild and is mostly dry and refreshing rather than flavourful. Overall, not a bad beer, just not too much flavours and a very mild and simple beer. I sampled this pint on draught at Cookie in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 02-January-2010.

Bottle 330ml.

Clear light medium yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, fruity, light caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20110731]

downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Gold with a decent white head and trace carbonation. Light grass y hop aroma, some slightly sweet malts and moderately bitter finish. All very competent but a bit lacking in character.

Bottle. A good session beer. Enough sweet malt and hop bitterness to keep you interested, but you can also have a few. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thepegjett (1281) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2012
A bright clear ale with ample carbonation. The aroma is fruity and peppery, leading to a sweet and dry finish. Ok.

Something might be wrong with my taste buds but I thought this stuff tasted like apples... the head stick around for a while. 568 ml pint bottle. Better than some other Aussie beers that I’ve sampled in my lifetime.
