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

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

(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. Slowly it grew on me, I wouldn’t mind it in a hot day.

375 ml bottle. Bright pale Gold color. Decent sized fluffy white head. Faint grainy malt nose. Zesty, light bodied, grainy malt flavor with metallic notes. Some citrus hops, but barely evident. A good hot weather lager. Nothing more.

Light fresh springy tasting. Looks like a lager. Tastes like a lager. Fresher and more spirited than some commercial lagers. Would be my preference. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mass market lager, not much else to say, blends with the rest. Thirst quenching ability is saving grace.

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 Bičre)
