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

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 dosn’t gets as boring as boags premium lager.

Brought to me by my friend from Melbourne. It’s 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 (3894) - 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.

Have always preferred cascade over this one, but I gave it another chance and it was not too bad. I liked the fresh taste and slight sweetness.

Average pilsner, with lots of carbonation. Cant compare with pilseners from the Czech Republic
