Delicious malty aroma. Head dies away almost immediately. Very nice rich coppery colour. Feels nice in the mouth with hoppy flavours with a touch of bitterness. Apparently one of the most popular brews at the brewhouse in Melbourne.

This is my new favourite of the James Squire selection. Its got a strong orange colour and is quite bitter. Very easy drinking but still with plenty of flavour makes it one of my favourites. It is slightly fruity but I don’t think this detracts from the overall flavour which is strong and smooth.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 23, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark gold to light amber with a big bubbled thick foamy ivory head. Faint hop and toasted malt aroma. Great lacing. Nice mild hop palate. Body is medium- definitely not light. A touch better than many Oz beers.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 8, 2006
Tasted 05/10/2006. 345ml bottle from 24-pack purchased at a small bottle store at the southern end of Montville. Orange-gold with a disappating white airy foam. A slightly sickly fruit hop character (paw paw, mango and peach) and a touch mineral on the nose. Dry lightweight malt character and slightly stony in the mouth, with a mild bitterness and metallic tang in the finish. Like the otherJS beers I’ve tried it is not quite doing it for me but at least it was fresh. Where’s the malt!?

In general I find the Squires range to be a bit overrated, but this is probably my favourite. On tap at the Courthouse in Newtown. Fruity hints but not a lot else going on. Several jugs went down quite easily.

Nicko (215) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2006
Copper amber colour, with a small head and low carbonation. Strange stale mango, pineapple, sweet fruitbowl aromas. More sweet than bitter, feminine JS Amber Ale possibly.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
Bottle. Golden clear colour with a weak head. Nice fruity aroma with a grassy touch. Flavour of sweet malt, caramel and a hoppy finish, tasty but still soft.

joergen (23767) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, hops and pine needles. Flavour of malts, hops and pine needles.

Ungstrup (30685) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
An orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy, but also with a light note of grass. The flavor is sweet with light notes of both caramel and grass, leading to a dry bitter end. Somewhat boring.
