COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love our Pale Ale. Many of us from the brewery have made pilgrimages around the world in search of great varieties of this wonderful style. Surprisingly, there are no great secrets to brewing this type of ale but there are most definitely no great shortcuts. Bag loads of Cascade and Galaxy whole hop flowers that we source direct from hop growers in Victoria, Tassie and the US are thrown at this beer, creating an intense citrus and grapefruit aroma and flavour that we balance with a careful selection of specialty malts and a local pale malt made to our own specifications. Preservative and additive free our Pale Ale is live-yeast conditioned in bottles and kegs for unmatched freshness and character. From brewing to release, a batch of pale ale takes about six weeks, allowing for two weeks conditioning in the bottle after packaging. No artificial additives are included, just great ingredients. Pour it into a glass to enjoy it at its best! The beer’s character is driven by the use of fresh whole hop flowers. Hop Flowers are carefuly selected that are bursting with aroma and contain all the essential oils and acids that deliver an uniqe flavour experience. Drink a few pints of this beer and you’ll soon become one of us…a certified "hophead" craving those crisp citrus flavours of grapefruit and passionfruit and maybe a bit of honey, all backed up with a good balance of bitterness. If you’re wondering what on earth malt or hops actually are then click on the two hop characters to the left and find out more. It’s not just the hops that make Little Creatures Pale Ale what it is though. Selected malts are kilned in small batches to our specifications and are used exlusively in our pale ale. Two different yeasts are used to both ferment and bottle condition the beer. The latest technology and equipment is used to maintain absolute quality control and one of the main ingredients in the pale ale has got to be the amount of passion that it takes to produce a seriously good beer...we live for it! From brewing to release, a batch of pale ale takes about six weeks, allowing for two weeks conditioning in the bottle after packaging. No artificial preservatives or additives are included, just great ingredients.

Pint at the Light Brigade in Paddington Sydney but this is a regular at home. Orange gold and clear with no lasting head. Fruity, citrusy and sweet tempered well by more bitterness than most pale ales. Mellow finish. Definitely the go-to on tap in most Aussie pubs which don’t specialise in beer.

Heidbummer (611) - SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Pint at the Marquis Cornwallis. Pours caramel coloured, soft foamy head. Aroma of grass and toffee. Very soft mouthfeel. I have had this in bottles and it was quite a bit happier. It has lost some edge on draught. A bit too sweet.

his Pale Ale has real flavor explosion of Passionfruit, honey and a very bittery lemon aftertaste. Loved every drop.

Beggard (65) - - DEC 13, 2016
0,33l Bottle, Down Under australian pub, Vienna. Hoppy aroma, unfiltered light color, and mild hoppy taste. Doesn’t last long. Refreshing and balanced. Sommer beer.

Bottle from Waitrose. A very light and refreshing pale ale with just the right level of sweet aftertaste. Could find myself drinking far too many of these

weark (793) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2016
Bouteille achetée chez Drink Of The World - De couleur dorée avec une belle mousse blanche qui tient - Au nez des arômes légèrement agrumes se mélange à des notes floral et maltée légèrement caramel, légèrement herbacée, un nez tout en fraîcheur et finesse - En bouche pas de surprise le corp malté caramel est bien présent avec ces houblons agrumeux qui tire sur l’orange, toujours aussi fin et frais - Corp léger/moyen, amertume moyenne, carbonation correct, sèche et lisse, final caramel orange moyenne - Simple mais terriblement efficace
