Format: standard 330mL brown bottle, pretty standard James Squire label.

Appearance: pours out a dark amber-gold colour with a finger of off-white head that drops away to a thin cap.

Aroma: a small amount of biscuit malts and citrus hops on the nose. Not very powerful.

Taste: more weak biscuit malts and citrus with a heavy fug over the top from either odd spices or yeast. Not the best Squire beer.

Aftertaste: the flavours follow through here, still a bit awkward.

Mouth feel: fairly light in body with a moderate carbonation.

Overall: an okay beer but certainly not the best from the James Squire line-up. I'll spend the extra $5 for a case of the others.

Bottles don't seem to be too friendly to the JS beers, at least here at this hotel. This one is the best of three so far. Poured at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, thick, short lived, cream-colored head and a bit of lace. Aroma had hints of resin and citrus, malt. Flavor's like nose, tang is in front, followed by a bit o bitter and a tad o sweet. Body's a touch soft and not to the advantage. Finish has some medicinal flavs that last a bit.
