COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Boring average american lager. Very carbonated. Boring and fizzy. Very thin and watery.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2004
A yellow beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is slightly hoppy. The flavor is malty with a slight hoppy end.

Very light colour and very mild in flavour, but it is not awful. More a pilsener than lager but that is not a bad thing. Very easy to drink and it is a lot better than the other Boag's beer I have tried because of the cleaness of taste. not bad at all. Cheers folks

My choice of Aus megalagers usually but this time it was pretty ordinary. Usually it has very little flavour and as such is very drinkable. This time it had a bit of bar runner aroma and some grassiness. Flavour was pretty light as usual, still decent enough. Good head retention which I was surprised by.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2003
Served in a glass so cold it almost hurt to touch. Very pale. Minimal head. Light hops make it a touch above average.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2003
better than strongarm, crisp, dry, nothing special, boring aussie lager, not worth your time or money.

KBeer (117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Its a good drinking lager - nothing more or less. I wouldn't qaulify it as premium, but it is a cut above most of the masms produced lagers of the world.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 A nice lager? more like pilsener, it is hoppy and bitter and a very nice drop. The aroma is great and it goes down good nice and cold. cheers

Good clean taste, great light gold colour but I can't really love this beer. Its still a little plain but it does go down easily

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2003
More of a pilsener than an american standard, I quite like this one much better than its Tassie counterpart. Short head, gold colour and good bitterness for me,could be a little bit more fuller flavours there but then you can't have everything.
