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 beers 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 youll soon become one of usa 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 youre wondering what on earth malt or hops actually are then click on the two hop characters to the left and find out more. Its 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.

Austbloke (10) - - SEP 1, 2005
Golden coloured beer with a slight cloudiness to it. Fantastic aroma that hints of a soft malty fruity type smell. A slightly off white head that gives a great appearance as it laces the glass till the end. As with all good beers it leaves you quickly grabbing for the bottle opener for the next one. A very good beer thats well worth paying the extra for.

R4N5H (997) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2017
33cl bottle at Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse, Sydney on 22-Feb-2017. Hazy amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of grain, malt and pine. Light to medium body and medium carbonation. Taste of cereal, fruit and hops. Fruity, lightly hopped but easy to drink. Not bad.

roflorence (42) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2017
Hazy, golden colour with 1cm of head. Citrus and mango aroma and taste. Medium carbonation. Easy drinking but there are definitely better Australian examples of the style.

papat444 (129) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Appearance: Golden-yellow body with lazy wisps floating around under a generous white head that reminds me of bubbling marshmallows. Very nice looking. Smell: Some hops, discreet and earthen with a touch of floral notes. Has a light mineral feel to it with a hint of corn maybe. Taste: Earthy hops with a bit of corn that thankfully fades. A nice subdued bitterness rounds it off. No idea why but im reminded of leaves a little bit. Good but would have liked a more fuller taste. Mouthfeel: Active carbonation coupled with a nice crisp and clean feel to it. Has a little bit of a dry edge to it.

Bottle at home from Waitrose. Tasty and fresh pale ale which was quite bitter but still very enjoyable. Open to trying again on warm day.

mikeymike (66) - Kansas, USA - FEB 5, 2017
330cl bottle gift from a friends trip to Australia. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a 1 1/2 finger head. Aroma is bready malt with a mellow barnyard hoppy yeast note. Taste is a slightly bitter up front followed by toasted cereal. Finish is semi-dry. Mouthfeel is medium-thin with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall, there is nothing exceptional in the taste or aroma, but everything overall is exceptionally well balanced. An extremely crushable session pale ale.

Dandm (120) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2017
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 dont specialise in beer.

Heidbummer (448) - 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.
