COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gage Premium Lager is an authentic lager, conditioned at zero degrees to maximise the taste. It is extra smooth, exceptionally well balanced and combines a spicy, lemony hop flavour with a sweet, clean maltiness. The rewards continue with a gentle, refreshing bitterness in the finish.

StevieT (701) - - MAY 13, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a crystal clear gold, small head, mild malty aroma, smooth with not much in the way of hops. Pretty good.

Strong stale aroma with some citrus hints. Clear golden colour with little to no head. Strong citrus flavours with a quick dry finish. Light body with medium carbonation.

KeefOz (953) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2013
330ml stubbie. BB 03/04/2014. Labelled as “Premium Lager Batch Produced Extra Smooth”. Poured a clear amber colour, typical colour of a lager. Had a 5mm thick white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced OK. Low to moderate carbonation as seen by some small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of sweet malt and very faint yeast – overall not inspiring. Taste initially of sweet malt followed by very faint (almost zero) hops bitterness which produced a bland taste. Light body with a watery mouthfeel. Clean with a bit of a metallic finish. Bland – not “premium”.

Bif (1541) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Pours a clean golden color with a fizzy head that fades quickly to no real lacing. Aroma of some citrus with some malt sweetness and fresh grain. taste of a bit of citrus and malt sweetness and some grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Faily light body, a bit crisp and refreshing. Decent balance. Decent beer, good for a few.

blackbock (111) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle. Cracked this one and drank straight from the bottle, so cannot accurately ’gage’ the head, nor the colour properly. The first mouthful agreed with the label: Super smooth. Not in a watery kind of way, although it is an aussie lawnmower lager, but in a pleasantly malty, not-in-any-way offensive way. One of the nicest Australian lagers I have tasted in fact. Much better than I expected, would definitely prefer it to crownies, or VB or New.

maneliquor (3209) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2011
I actually enjoy this as a pure lager. It is clearly nothing special but a 6 pack would do you just fine

bmeup (522) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2010
Pale yellow thin head. Some hops & straw. Lacks character in all departments.

Jade (412) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2010
Straw yellow, clear coloured pour. Ne head to speak of (minimal white). Highly hopped aroma, but not very pleasant. Tastes better then it smells. Pedestrian flavour, quite thin. Not a terrible beer, not great either.

mkel07 (3640) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 330ml bottle. Clear and bright yellow in colour with a moderate snow white head and an aroma of malt and grain that is very basic. Rebranded with a new name and label but beer is still quite orinary. Very thin and watery and lackjing in any sort of flavour.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle. A touch of honey to the malty aroma. Honey notes again on the clean palate - that improved as it warmed. A hoppy bite in the finish.
