COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The key to the distinctive flavour is the use of quality ingredients. Using a much higher hopping level than most Australian Lagers, James Squire Pilsener is brewed with Czech Saaz and New Zealand Belgian Saaz aroma hops to produce the pronounced floral spicy finish and the wonderful herbaceous aroma.

Clean and crisp pils. Subtle but swift use of malt, medium carbonation. Noticeable vegetable aroma with some spice. Sharp bitter saaz finish. Good clear pilsener. Not my style however

StuffWine (122) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
Poured gold-amber with loose white head. Not much aroma, slight tropical fruits. Sweet malty and bready taste switching to sharp bitterness. Moderate body, creamy carbonation, and very very long finish.

Brodies_Best (233) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 20, 2013
On tap pours golden with not much head. Not what I expected when ordering a pilsner. Aroma is of rosehip. Taste is of rosehip followed by a weird intermediate liquorice flavour then spices like cinnamon come through. Aftertaste of spices and Christmas pudding. Interesting but makes me belch a bit more than usual. Yup can taste the hops in that buuurp

Mid amber pour with thin head, some lacing. Aroma malt, citrus and some hops, flavour is heavily malty, a little bitter, a little sweet. Not a lot of complexity but not bad.

Bif (1384) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at Portland Brewhouse. Served a light golden color with a creamy head that faeds to some lacing. Aroma of citrus and a mild malt sweetness. Taste of some malt sweetness with a bit of citrus and grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body and quite smooth and creamy. Not bad but still a bit bland for a pilsener.
