3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
James Boag’s Premium Lager has a thin, white head, somewhat of a lacing sheen left on the glass, a hazy, yellow-golden appearance, streaming bubbles, and some suspended brown particles visible throughout. The aroma is of pungent, sweet barley malt, sugar, and white bread. Flavor is of sweet, bold malt, white bread, a shadow of paper, and a nice balancing hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium, and James Boag’s Premium Lager finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. Overall, this is another very good beer. Buy it, and try it! RJT

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mass market lager, not much else to say, blends with the rest. Thirst quenching ability is saving grace.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden, very clear, nice good looking head. Watery, light bitter, slightest if yeast character. Low bitterness. Not bad actually for what it is. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
When I used to drink just lagers I found this to be above the average aussie mainstream. Now after trying more beer styles and going back to Boags it is pretty pedestrian. Too sweet, not much flavour but ok on a hot day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle. Clears golden with a medium head. Slightly sweet nose. Refreshing aroma, good hops, a bit of malts, not boring indeed.

Best Australian Beer on the market! Smooth, consistent, almost equal to Bavarian beers in quality!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Aussie Backpackers Pub, Riga). Clear golden colour. Small size, white head, stays. Hop extract, sweet, corny aroma. Smells like proper low-quality macro. Hop extract, corny, papery taste. Not good. Never again!

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It?s an ok - no flaws or off flavours. Hop bitterness but no aroma or flavour, a trace of malt flavour. I hear there?s 30% sugar used for the dry finish. Little bitterness, easy drinking. Easy to knock back, just don?t expect any flavour.

375ml bottle into schooner glass. Barely discernable malt nose. Yellow/amber with lasting white head. Nice maltiness up front. Very little bitterness at the end. Much better than other Aussie mainstream lagers.
