Pours a golden body with a nice white head. Aroma is lacking a lot its smells more between a lager and a pale ale no real hops or fruits here pretty bland. Taste is the same just a bland watered down ale with little hops and mild bitterness. Average beer

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
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.

From stubby poured to glass Ar: minimal aroma, a little bit of tropical but not a lot / Ap: Gold, clear, small white head with decent retention / T: Not very sweet, not very bitter, pleasant but simple? / P: light body, thin to oily texture, slightly carbonated, short bitter finish / O: Not a bad beer, better than 150 lashes, but not a great beer either. meh, drinkable.

sm89walt (1750) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2014
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.

Keg at James Squire Brewhouse @ Waterfront City, Melbourne, Victoria. Hazy amber, small head. Fruity nose. Mid sweet with light-medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Ripe fruit and grass. Salty finish. Dull.

drpimento (2178) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2014
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.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2014
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.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Quite bland but not too bad, just bland and maybe a little watery. Mild flavours of hops, drink it cold. Quite seasonable, just finished one in fact.
