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.

Clear medium yellow - amber orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay - grass, pale malt, caramel, sweet malt, light to moderate hoppy, old hops, grass - hay, dry grass. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration, old hops, malty, pale malt, hay - grass, sweet malt. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. IMO a bit borring and plain. [20141130]

omhper (21459) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2002
Deep golden colour. Firmly malty, bready, dry and clean. Slightly salty and bitter finish. An excellent firm malty pilsener, which I find closer to a south German pilsener than a Czechish one.

fiulijn (16477) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006
Hazy golden color. The aroma is too simple. The flavor is better, with a light maltiness, dry, and a very strong bitterness, unusual. At least the final is pleasant.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
Deep golden colour. Rendolent with minty, fruity hops and sweet, breezy malts. Low bitterness, just a little bit of tannin and wood lingering late. Fresh, fruity character. Well-balanced with fresh malts.
