2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer looks like a champagne in its color and in its carbonation. It is clear enough to see the carbonation in action. There is a thin white head and an oily lacing. That lacing adds a creaminess to the mouth feel. Flavor here is very muted but is mostly dry malt and corn. There is the slightest taste of apples and a tiny bit of bitterness late, but again, flavor is muted here. This beer is very drinkable and straightforward. Just don’t look for much excitement. But then it is a pale lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear fizzy yellow body. Grassy notes in the aroma and flavor, fairly clean and no off-flavors. Slight mineral note, and overall inoffensive. I drank like 7 of these sitting on the beach in mid-winter NSW somewhere. It did the job.

(Boag’s Premium Lager) Bottle 375 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 5%
Bright golden yellow colour on the body wth a tall and soapy white head on top of it, with average retention, leaving heavy lacing behind.
Sweet aroma, malts, corn, cardboard, adjuncts.
Weird taste, kind of fruity, jelly, malts, hay.
Thin body, even watery, carbonation on good levels.
