What a surprise to see this new beer on tap when I went to try the Hop Thief... and this lad stole the thunder if you ask me. The colour is a bit dark for the style but very appealing. Golden almost amber, cloudy, and an appropriately poppy-bubble head. There's a really nice subtle hops aroma - true to the German style. Definitely one of the most aromatic JS brews. The beer itself is very, very refreshing. Why did they introduce this at the END of summer?! A perfect amount of bitterness rounds out a truly BIG mouthfeel. A supremely drinkable beer. Thumbs up, lad.

Pours very similar to a lot of JS beers - golden and cloudy with a slight sediment through it. Head is good, white coloured, dissipated quite quickly. Pretty good looking.
Nose is a bit simple, probably a bit too cold. Bitter pangs, a fair amount of clean but spicy hops on that, slight fruit character. Still seems quite simple though, even warmed up.
Taste is not bad. Clean and crisp lagery flavours, with a pleasant sweet front palate and a malt profile that lasts pretty cleanly from start to finish. Slight tingle in the mouthfeel, otherwise quite thin. Finishes cleanly with mild, polite bitterness.
Pretty decent effort, very drinkable.

Wow. Tried this one recently at the James Squire Brewhouse, and wasn't expecting an awful lot, but this one really is a good package.
Slightly cloudy orange amber body. It has a good white head, and low carbonation.
Spicy fruit on the nose, with citrus and a little passionfruit. Very fragrant and appealing.
Strong tropical fruit on the front palate. Quite rich with a fine, bitey bitter finish. The hoppy bitterness cuts through the front palate nicely. This is a really good unfiltered lager. I was very pleasantly surprised.
This is worth a try if you're at the JSB. I very nearly passed on this one and would have missed out on something good.
