COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on a traditional recipe and as strong in flavour as the name suggests. Inspired by the turn of the century arm wrestling team, which was made up of Boags employees and local citizens. This strong beer has a full, fresh, malty character with a subtle bitterness and smooth finish.

A easy drink with maltiness and a bitter finish, Has a bit of body but one dimensional on the palate.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2002
quite sweet and a bit malty, slightly bitter on the finish. Quite a clean finish, but lacks a bit of flavour, easy drinking stuff though.

Not a premium beer but doesn’t try to be. Has an odd quinine-like astringincy.

thebaron99 (110) - Royston Park SA, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2001
Funky bitter that requires your tastebuds to momentarily cease to function. Then when you think your dead, you remember what part of the female anatomy Tasmania looks like, and your glad your not there.

distinctively boag’s i.e. not too challenging but quite an enjoyable drink
