2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
OLD NOTES DEC 6, 2003
Had this on tap a few months back, nothing to memorable, but i’ve been meaning to try it out of the bottle ever since. So hear it goes. Quite a strong yeasty smell. A fair bit of alcohol on the nose. Pours a deep golden with a small lacy head that hangs around. A bread kind of flavour to it. A bit of a metallic bitterness with it. Drinkable and decent, but not really my style of beer.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
...bottle. Dark golden yellow, with a very thin white head. Lots of hops and malt on the nose. Bitter than most flavor, thin body, easy drinking. Finishes dry with a lingering malt flavor, not bad.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber in colour with a long-lasting frothy white head, good lacing. Thin to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation; Moderate bitterness; Not much flavour other than a little maltiness. Nice dry finish. An average pale lager.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with an off white head which lasted fairly well although left little if any lacing. Highly carbonated. A light sweat malt flavour with a mild bitterness. Goes down OK but nothing to write home about. Similar to most other Australian pale lagers.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big fluffy head, light orange colour body, hoppyish aroma (could be skunky!) a very mild an plain flavour, nothing special but certainly not bad, a ’bbq beer’

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle -- Pours a light amber with a small, white frothy head. A bit of retention and a whole lot of lacing. Lots of bubbles. Aroma has much more going on than your average Oz lager with some caramel, malt and hops. Watery mouthfeel. The flavour is more one dimensional than the aroma with some sweetness up front and a vaguely (ever so vaguely) bitter aftertaste. Why it’s got that word "Bitter" in its name is a bit of a mystery. Not bad, with more going for it than most Oz lagers.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
375ml. Bottle. Pours a bubbly amber with a bubbly white head. Smells of pears with a trace of cabbage. Flavors are more pear and some green apple. Stale bread. Off-putting sweetness. Mouthfeel is way too fizzy. There is a little bitterness in the finish but it is offset by the offensive fruity-sweetness of it. Tastes like watered down cider. Weird flavor for a beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very respectable low cost beer. None of the sweet cloying nature of the once good "premium", but a satisfying salty solid beer without much in the way of chemicals. Boags best performer in my view, punching well above its weight.
