A European style lager brewed from the finest quality pilsner malts. This beer is fermented at a lower temperature than most Australian lagers, and employs an extended maturation period. These combine together with a mixture of kettle and late hopping to yield a crisp pale lager

Gold, watery thin body. Head is white and short lived. Smells nutty and watery hops/malt. Taste is boring and hops are just barely detectable amongst the uninspired malts. Very average and boring, standard pub crap. Sampled on tap in Melbourne, Australia.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2004
Bottle: Pours an off gold with a little head that doesnít last. Aroma of watery malt with a soft nut tone, and clean grassy hops. Flavour was very watery with some hop and an unusual but not unpleasant green apple finish. Not bitter at all. Thin watery body. Easy to drink, thatís all.

A consistently good drop. Full malt flavour with a subtle nutty nose. Always a delight to see it in an Esky full of ice. Have not noticed a change since the brewery switched to foreign ownership.

Like all the others nothing worth beers. I bought it to celebrate the wedding of a danish prince and a tasmanian girl. Lets hope there marriage dosnít gets as boring as boags premium lager.

Brought to me by my friend from Melbourne. Itís clear yellow, little white head, with a sweet lemon and grain aroma, and a crisp but syrupy mouthfeel... regular lager flavors, grains and light lemon, minus the skunkyness.

A typical lager.Light golden body,thinnish head,watery.But it had quite a decent hoppy taste which left a bitter aftertaste.Otherwise this is a bland beer.

DanielBrown (3923) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2004
Bottle from Rai Wines, Harborne, Birmingham. A poster in the window made great claims for this being a world champion beer or suchlike... Pale yellow with a soapy smooth head and likewise lacing. Tasty cheese biscuit aroma. Remarkably clean taste; sweet crystal water. Fast across the tongue with only a smidgeon of aftertaste. I tell you what, for 5.0% abv, this is uncannily light tasting.

Nice hops aroma, slight sweetness in flavour and a mild finishing bitter. Nothing outstanding but nothing bad...

Is there a better lager in Australia? No! All the crispness, light fruit hints and refreshment you need. Boag's. Beauty. Spanner.
