White Rabbit Dark Ale - Australia

White Rabbit Dark Ale - Australia

White Rabbit - Dark Ale
Fermentation with imagination
Imagination isn't necessarily something that you find on the list of many brewers' ingredients but it is something we love to dabble with a lot.... Imagination helps us to expand our minds and think beyond the norm and create products that are proud to be different, different in the expression of tradition and different in the world of conformity. Brewing with open fermenters isn't exactly normal practise now days either but both are key tools in our creative process. Our beers are born out of fermenting with creativity, delivering unique and complex characters and aromas from a process that was created centuries ago from brewer's imagination.....

An intriguing dark ale that moves to it's own beat, our minds set about creating a beer that contradicted itself....rich dark and flavoursome but at the same time ever refreshing....malt driven but with the aromatic lift of generous doses of hops. Raisin like ester characters derived through its open fermentation bind a balancing act of flavour with a malt bill that rewards the parched palette with a rich, dark colour without losing any sessionabilty qualities, which we love so much in a beer. Passed through a hop back generously laden with whole hop flowers and then dry hoped in the open fermenters, at 4.9% abv this is a dark ale with plenty of reassuring bitterness.....

Owner(s)    Little World Beverages

Little Creatures is a brewing company based in Fremantle, Western Australia, originally established in 2000 by the original brewers of the Matilda Bay Brewing Company. The name "Little Creatures" is inspired by a song lyric from the Talking Heads Little Creatures album and refers to the live yeast cells that turn the sugars in malt wort into alcohol. An independent craft brewery movement in Australia, Little Creatures Pty Ltd is a subsidiary of Little World Beverages, a publicly listed company.

Brewery
The brewery building, which was formerly used as a boat shed and crocodile farm, is open to the public and contains a café/restaurant.

Brands
The original Little Creatures Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed with Cascade (aroma) and Chinook (bittering) whole hop flowers, self-propagated yeast with a secondary bottle fermentation, and Australian malts. They also market an amber ale (Rogers), a Pilsener, a golden ale (Bright Ale) and an apple cider (Pipsqueak).
For the flagship Pale Ale, cool bottle fermentation is carried out with a lager yeast whereas the primary fermentation is most likely accomplished using a US west coast ale yeast such as the "Chico" strain (available as Wyeast 1056 or Safale US-05).
The brewery has won a number of Australian International Beer Awards. It has been named Champion International Brewery 2002, Champion Australasian Brewery 2002 and the Pale Ale has been named Champion Ale (2002, 2007) and Champion Bottled Ale (2001).

Little World Beverages (LWB) is an Australian beverage and hospitality company, best known for its ownership of the Little Creatures brewery. Although often associated with the independent craft brewery movement in Australia, Little World Beverages is in fact a publicly listed company, about 40% owned by the giant Japanese-controlled beverages company Lion Nathan, one of Australia's "big two" beverage companies, (the other being the Fosters Group.) Other major shareholders include founding shareholder and director Adrian Fini, (approx 17.5% through the Fini Group Pty Ltd and Yalaba Pty Ltd); Nic Trimboli, also a founding and current Executive Director (approx 8%); David Martin (approx 7.5%) and Howard Cearns, through the Cearns Family Trust and Back Veranda Pty Ltd (approx 7%).
The company was launched in November 2000 by several ex-staff and shareholders of the Maitilda Bay Brewing Company after that company was bought by Carlton & United Beverages (CUB). The company was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange on 20 October 2005 ASX:LWB.


Brewing
Little Creatures Brewing Pty Ltd is the brewing subsidiary of Little World Beverages Pty Ltd and currently operates out of one brewery in Fremantle, WA, Australia.
The brewery has a stable of four beer brands.
Little Creatures Pale Ale was the brewery's original beer and continues to be its flagship; a mid strength ale (Rogers) is also brewed, along with a Pilsner and a "bright" ale (Little Creatures Bright Ale).
Alongside these staples brands, Little Creatures also produce Single Batch releases - in "pint-sized" (568ml) - bottles. Examples have included a Brown Ale, an Imperial India Pale Ale, A Märzen and an Oatmeal Stout.
In March 2009, LWB opened a second brewery - known as the White Rabbit brewery - in Healesville, Victoria, Australia. White Rabbit is a smaller operation than Little Creatures, with distinct branding and products. They currently market White Rabbit Dark Ale and White Rabbit White Ale.. A hospitality facility operates alongside brewing operations. The Heavlesville is also where the Pipsqueak Cider is produced.
In February 2009, it was announced that LWB had taken a 20% stake in the Stone & Wood Brewing Company based in Byron Bay, NSW, Australia.[5]

Hospitality/Entertainment
Little World Beverages operates three hospitality/entertainment venues: Fremantle, WA, Fitzroy, Vic; and a third venue in Healesville, Vic.

Re: White Rabbit Dark Ale - Australia

Colour: Dark brown, like Coca-Cola

Taste: I was a bit disappointed with this one since I like the beers from the sister brewery a lot. Nice creamy texture but the flavour was a bit like a sweet lager. I would have preferred a fuller taste to it.

I rate it at 3/5 on a scale from 1 to 5 where 5 is best.
