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.

Sometimes I thin k the quality in this beer varies. Ive had it sometimes and Ireckon it is just about the best beer ever and then next time I have it, it seems to lack something. Im not sure why this is. It has a great hop bitternes which I love and is a darker than usual pilsener. One that is easy to drink on a hot summer day while watching the cricket. Cheers.

Keg. Clear golden yellow with a small and mostly lasting, somewhat lacing white head. Pale malt, biscuit, bread, citrus and grain characters across the board. Finishes with a pithy bitterness of moderate length and intensity. Light to medium body and medium carbonation.

On tap at The Charming Squire, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out grassy notes and a little tropical fruitiness. Flavour brings out lots of tropical fruitiness and grassy notes. Doesnt really strike me as a pilsner, but its clean and fresh and juicy. Solid stuff.

Found notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. Good refreshing beer. Not as tasty as the Amber.
