James Squire - Original Amber Ale by 


  • Soon after his arrival as a convict on the First Fleet, James Squire was caught stealing supplies to brew Australia’s first beer. The result was so palatable, the colony’s ranking officers only gave him 150 lashes. After fathering eleven children and working his way up from convict to publican and landowner, Squire established his brewery and the Malting Shovel Tavern on the banks of the Parramatta River. In his name we brew on to this day
  • We don’t brandy the term ‘original’ around lightly. James Squire Original Amber Ale is so named, because it’s much the same style of ale James Squire would have brewed here in 1794. So when we call it ‘a handcrafted English-style Brown Ale brewed of the finest ingredients’, know that it was the truth then as it is now – and it still goes well with Kangaroo.
  • James Squire Original Amber Ale is a handcrafted blend of Pale and Crystal malts, three distinct hops and a 140-year-old top fermenting ale yeast. Deep copper in colour with a creamy head, this beer rewards the appreciative drinker with a long, slightly nutty finish

Cheers James …. it’s a bloody beauty!!!

    It’s really smooth Darren. I had never heard of it before and spied the last six pack in the fridge at the local supermarket (the packaging is awesome and the bottle are too!!) After my first sip I was hooked!!! It really does leave a wonderful nutty flavour on the palate!! Almost has a slight licorice aftertaste too, which was surprising :) :)
