Little Creatures Pale Ale – Ep 10

Little Creatures Pale Ale brewed by Little Creatures Brewing in Fremantle, Western Australia, is a pale ale. 5.2% alcohol in 330ml bottles.

Thanks to Nigel for being my first guest on the show, and sharing his recent visit to the Little Creatures brewery.

This was such a pleasant surprise beer for me, since I wasn’t expecting such a strong hop flavour for a pale ale. So if you like strong hop flavours you’ll like this one.

The marketing for Little Creatures is spot on. Everything is simple yet complete, from website to bottle to packaging. I really like the website and packaging. But I’m always amazed that brewers don’t put their website on the packaging material. From bottle to carton.

But in the end it comes down to the taste and I rate this a top shelf beer in my book. Can’t wait to try their other beers.

If you live in Brisbane and want to join me for a beer on mybeerjourney.com just leave me a comment on the blog.

Dos XX, Dos Equis – Ep 9

Dos XX or Dos Equis from the Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma brewery in Mexico is a pilsner ale. 4.5% alcohol in 330ml bottles.

I rate this beer as a top shelf beer.

They also have a really good website www.dosequis.com with a lot going on in there to build interaction with the visitor, although to much fluff for me. At least the beer is good so you can forgive the rest.

I keep forgetting to mention that you can subscribe via youtube, iTunes, RSS, and don’t forget to signup by email as well.

Leave a comment with your thoughts on Dos XX or if you have any suggestions for me.
