Beer Review # 16
Little Creatures Brewing
American Pale Ale
Appearance: Soft red/orange in color. Tangerine
if I had to give it a name. Decent
amount of bubble action, and smells
of mandarin oranges.
Taste: Ive never had an Australian beer before, so i was excited for a unique
flavor. Sweet, a little fruity flavor with a nice dry, but not a bitter finish.
One of the best first drinks of beer Ive ever had.
Mouthfeel: I was happy this beer was so soft and smooth. The carbonation
was nice and balanced much like the flavors. The bitterness of
this beer I found came in the middle and then finished nice
Beer Type: The British versions of this beer are meant to be buttery and malty,
while the American Versions are mean to be crisp and clean.
Since this one is from Australia I think the balance between the
two is a perfect match
Drinkability: Smooth, light and great taste. Would be a staple in my fridge
if it wasn't INSANELY expensive. At $20 a 6 pack price is
this beer's only flaw.
Scoring: 21.5/25 This beer is worth the cost for the flavor and balance.
One I would recommend but not one to share.
