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.
