Apparently this is the last beer brewed in the old brewhouse at Fremantle (currently under renovation), hence its name (and its not a bock despite the 'ator').

Sampled at the brewery in Fremantle - only a small sign behind the bar to indicate its on (reserved for enthusiasts I guess). Pours a pale copper, with a nice malty nose and fluffy head. Has a hearty malty backbone, and a slightly harsh hop flavour with a bitter finish. Actually tastes very similar to the LC pilsner. I read it contains tasmanian saaz and Hallertauer hops.

I enjoyed drinking a couple (ok - 4) of these.

Review is from recent memory, so apologies for lack of detail:

Appearance - 3.5
A small off-white head over a copper-orange body.

Smell - 4.0
Immistakably a Little Creatures brew - hops clearly dominating over the malt, giving a complex, fruity aroma.

Taste - 4.0
Again, clearly a LC's brew as hops lead the way. Surprisingly this is quite clearly the second most bitter beer brewed at LC's (behind the pale ale, and discounting The Knowledge). Very much hop driven, fruity, with only a little malt in the background.

Mouthfeel - 4.0
Slightly thick and sticky, but nicely carbonated and went down with little resistance.

Drinkability - 4.0
Easy to drink, tasty enough to keep coming back for more.

While I thoroughly enjoyed this beer - I was a little disappointed at how little it strayed from the usual Little Creatures mold. A more balanced beer with less hops and more malt would have been preferable. Still a very nice beer though.
