look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Amber with some soda
like carbonation, topped with 3 fingers of off white head.

Smells of hard water, light, fruity esters, and pizza dough.

The taste follows the nose.

Medium body, medium carbonation.

Got this in Perth, drinking in Thailand Aug 25th, 2017. If it was an English pale ale, it would be marked much higher, as I think it's well done to that style. Lacking in hop flamboyance for an American style.

3.02/5  rDev -12%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.
