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.

Bottle. A medium golden color with a tan head. The aroma is flowery with bread and distinct malts. A solid robust flavor for a pilsener, IMHO. A sweet front and a grassy finish.

Nice golden color with a large, pillowy white head. The aroma included peppery hops and some sweet malt tones. The flavor was more burnt, nutty, peppery hops. Crisp feel, full medium body. Nice.

Appearance: creamy white head with a clear golden body. Yup, looks like a pilsener. Flavor: This pilsener is actually medium bodied. Amazing. It has a flavor that's pretty well balanced between hoppiness & fruitiness. Why can't other brewers make pilseners with some cojones like this one? The only other pilisener w/ this much character is Victory's Prima Pils

Actually has some coor a taste for a Pilsner. Not as good as the Victory I had, but is probably my second favorite of a style I don't really care for

Medium gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and fruity. A medium bodied pilsner. WOW a pilsner with some substantial flavor to it. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are spicy and grapefruity. Nice balanced between the fruitiness, spiciness and bitterness. It is a little out of style for a pilsner, but I think I might have found a pilsner I really like. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2003 The Aussie Pilsner Urquell. A great beer with that saaz aroma and bitterness. The all malt flavour comes through which is a nice balance to the bitterness. It is crystal clear and looks great in the glass. Either on tap or from the bottle this one is a beauty.

If you ever get the chance to try this Pilsener on tap, give it a go, I was pleasently suprised how much better it tasted from the tap than from the bottle, refreshing, could be drank all night.

This is a pleasant pilsner. true to style, nice saaz mellow flavour and aroma. All malt - U bet, how else are U suppose to make beer; obviously the majority of brewers in the world think you can add suger and make money, yes they can but it tastes like crap. Hey Carlton only uses around 30% malt, rest is sucrose and rice for all their beers; and plus they throw in hop extract to bitter the beer after the fermentation. What a joke (Oh no I sound like I'm whinging) Ok back the Chuck's beer (C Hahn). Nice, beautiful, great Aussie (Real) beer!

Pours clear yellow with lots of carbonation. Bubbly white medium head with good retention. Mellow floral hop aroma with hints of spice. Well balanced light malt taste that comes through to a lovely bitter spice. Suprisingly smooth considering how light it is. You can tell its all malt no corn.

Spicy hop aroma with floral notes. It has rounded hop bitterness, especially in the finish, and this is balanced by the malt characteristics that grow from the light body.
