Origin – Australia
The Little Brewing Company popped to life in Port Macquarie when Warwick and Kylie Little crossed the line from passionate hobby to vocation and business (perhaps there’s hope of commercial success for the Craft Beer Co-op yet!) In its short life, this version of a Bohemian Pilsner, originally brewed by the monks in the middle ages, has won more medals than you could poke a bottle opener at. And there’s a good reason why it was judged the number two pilsner at the 2008, ‘09, ‘10, ‘11, ’12, ’13, ’14, ’15, ‘16 Australian International Beer Awards…it’s a cracker! It pours from the bottle with a beautiful golden colour, while the spicy, malty and floral aromas are a direct result of the use of imported Czech Saaz hops. On the lips it’s dominated by maltiness with a wicked kick of bitterness that both builds and hangs around long after the wetness is gone. It may be a Bohemian, but at $95 a case it’s fair to stay, it’s little high, not little low, and is certainly not for a poor boy from a poor family!
