James Squire adds new craft beer to its range
Australian beer brand James Squire has added a new craft beer to its range; an English-style ale called the Constable Copper Ale.
The new brew, which was previewed on tap in James Squire venues across Australia, became a permanent addition to the James Squire craft brew range, both on tap and bottled, from 28 October 2013.
James Squire, which is part of food and beverage company Lion’s alcoholic beverages portfolio, said the Constable Copper Ale pays tribute to a chapter in brewer James Squire’s life story. Squire began life in Australia as a convict, and went on to become a wealthy farmer and Australia’s first brewer. But in his later years, Squire became a district constable.
“The Constable Copper Ale is brewed in the style of an English Ordinary Bitter,” said Jeff Potter, Head Brewer at Malt Shovel, James Squire’s brewery. “This is a classic British ale style that we’re very excited to share with Australian drinkers as they continue to explore the range of craft beers out there,” he said.
James Squire said the new brew has a “deep golden colour and a rich creamy head” and offers a “balanced nose of floral, citrus and earthy notes and a moderate hop-bitterness that lingers after the firm malt backbone”.
“We have used a unique combination of malts and hops to brew The Constable Copper Ale,” Mr Potter said. “Pale, Munich and Crystal malts join Super Alpha, Topaz, UK Fuggles and Galaxy hops in a flavoursome, refreshing ale that we think beer drinkers will love,” he said.
