It wouldn’t be a bad ale, with citrus and pine needles on the flavour, but the aroma and taste of cashew apples is sickening. It kills what could have been a reasonable beer.

Didn’t get too much aroma, a little fruit, a little fruit in taste. My tastebuds aren’t working today. Nothing exciting or particularly desirable,bought on special, their hop thief leagues ahead.

Bottle. Amber white head. Nose is caramel, berry, mineral water. Flavour is pretty muted biscuit/caramel and British ale berry-ness. Nice carb bite, thick palate considering its deScription hints at lagerness. Alright.but quite muted, kind of papery despite having a 2015 expiry date.

Keg - Newport Arms, Newport, Sydney. Poured a clear, pale amber with a thick, lasting white head leaving a good lacework. Gentle mid fruit and citrus characters, a touch of grain on the nose and solid biscuity pale malt characters. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a medium length finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottles don’t seem to be too friendly to the JS beers, at least here at this hotel. This one is the best of three so far. Poured at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, thick, short lived, cream-colored head and a bit of lace. Aroma had hints of resin and citrus, malt. Flavor’s like nose, tang is in front, followed by a bit o bitter and a tad o sweet. Body’s a touch soft and not to the advantage. Finish has some medicinal flavs that last a bit.

Had this one many times on my travel in Australia. An easy and smooth thirst quencer, really refreshing flavour of grass, citrus and some light caramelly touches. Light bitter finish. Light body, without feeling watery. Overall, a great beer in the sun, that you can get anywhere here.
