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

Pours no head whatsoever on a clear medium straw colored body. The aroma is a weak grain aroma. The taste has a mild sweetness at first but balances out nicely. The texture is crisp and fizzy with a light body. The appearance and smell are wanting but the taste and texture are fine enough.

Bottle. Straw white head. Nose is malt green apple and anise, strangely. Flavour is pretty austere, which I like, with green apple, which I don’t. So for a green apple beer it’s good.

Mass market lager, not much else really needs to be said. Hahn premium lager is miles better than this.

Bottle. It's macro lager crap, but it's probably the best macro lager crap in Australia. I'm not going to bother intellectualising it.

From a bottle. It’s one of the better offerings at most bars, it’s well balanced hop and malt flavours make it worth a go.

Another lager that pours a clear golden color and a couple of fingers of white head quickly settling down. Malty and grainy aroma is followed by light taste, sweet start and hardly any bitterness in the taste. Not bad, but nothing special.
