Inspired by the feeling of refreshment on a long, hot summer day, the brewers at Little Creatures have launched the limited release Dogs Day Summer Beer, available now and through summer or until stock runs out.
Seasonal release beers are now a permanent fixture on the Creatures calendar, allowing brewers to experiment with new styles and to explore seasonal flavours. The next release is planned for winter 2016.
Russell Gosling, head brewer in Fremantle, said: “It’s a fine summer beer – crisp, clean, refreshing and hoppy. The beer pours a straw yellow colour with a rocky white head and tropical hop aromas waft thickly out of the glass. The bright, peachy, juicy-fruit hop flavours marry nicely with the wheat malt. In terms of bitterness, its firm, but not so intense that it overwhelms the light wheat character.”
The Dogs Day Summer Beer is 4.4 per cent ABV, with 30 IBU and carries an RRP of $21 for a 330ml six-pack.
