Bottle. A bit pale and watery but still evidence of coming from a good brewery. Sort of like they were trying to create a really bland mainstream characterless beer, and accidentally ended up with some nice residual fruity aromas. Inoffensive.
330ml bottle. Clear, chestnut colour with ruby glimmer and small, frothy, fading, beige head. Piney hoppy, slightly fruity and malty spicy aroma, hints of cherry, rye-like spiciness. Taste is piney hoppy, slightly malty spicy, minimally nutty, very cautious hints of cherry; light, quite watery. OK. Dbcwi88 (92) - Loughton, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2018
Sweet raisiny smell. Taste malt forward. Raisin notes and very slight bitterness. Could do with slightly higher abv but nice samsomuk (412) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2018

Bottle, during a holiday in Australia. Backlog rating from my bottle collection and historic scoring. Bought and enjoyed in Fremantle. Tasting notes not kept, just rating, but this was very enjoyable at the time.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2017 330 ml bottle. Appearance is a clear deep amber, topped with thin off white froth. Aromas are malt dominated, caramel, molasses, over some dried fruit hop notes. Taste is light, sweet, caramel, malty, with barely any Hoppy sweetness. Some bitter. Mouthfeel is somewhat light, as expected for a session red ale, but the aroma is completely unexpectedly good.

Ok as an alternative to most mid strength beers. Probably won’t bother again.

330 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.
Clear amber red colour; Half finger head with soapy off-white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Fragrant aroma of Amber malt, with tropical fruits, light grapefruits, cherries, strong red fruits, caramel, floral, sugar, light bread, light lemon and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of light Ale malt, with grains, very light caramel, light red fruits, floral, light molasses, wood, light biscuits, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass; Light body. Dry and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is fair Ale maltyness in a thin background. Light caramel, light red fruits and floral, low sweetness, woody notes with hoppy lemon to round. Too easy� Hoppiness is tropical fruits, light grapefruits, floral, light lemon and light grass in nose. Floral, wood, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is fair for a lasting mid astringent fair malty finish; Dry after taste. Grainy and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one has good tropical and red fruit aroma, but for light 3.8% abv Ale from Little Creatures, the feather-light taste in malt and hops is more or less expected. Drinkable, but it could have been more, given the fairly impressive hoppy aroma.
Dark amber/brown colour with thin, quickly dissipating head. Sweet malt aroma and accompanying malt & bread taste. Low carbonation. Slight background bitterness. Lengthy malt finish. Really nice mid-strength session beer but fairly one dimensional.
