Tap at an Irish Pub in Melbourne. Pour is a clear, light amber to light orange with a medium to thin semi-rocky, white head. Decent lace on the pint. Aroma is malt-forward, some honey, oatmeal, sugar. Taste is quite richer than expected- some fairly heavy cinnnamon, nutmeg, and gingerbread abound on what is just the slightest buttery palate. Some honey and diacetyl create faux richness. Palate goes oily from the slight diacetyl but no offensive. I thought this was pretty solid. Though, I’m not sure if this belongs in the pale lager category. There is just enough amber color and just enough malty richness, toast, and butter that I am tempted to say Vienna or something similar.

pretty much the only boags i can actually drink should the selection desperation sink in at a bar. bit thicker than others, can seem almost syrupy at times.

Decent enough when compared to other breweries ’draughts’. Slightly sweet, grainy lager. Not terribly much going on but it goes down easy enough. Meh.

Bottle - Pours amber with nice head. Tastes of grain and slight hops with a bitter finish. It has a rough texture and medium body compared to say boags premium which tastes watery. A good staple beer for a casual night in.

Bottle 375ml. @ home.
Clear medium amber orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, sour milk and malt notes, cheap honey notes. Flavor is light moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration, cardboard, honey. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20091207]

beerlady (556) - lucerne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 13, 2009
on my bottle it was written 4.6 % . has a pale bronzeish color and a white head that dissapears quickly. smells of rotten eggs, some malt and some damp bread. tasts malty, watery, a little bit of hops. aftertaste is watery, has some hidden bitterness and a hidden hint of burnt caramel.

Tap. Another boring pale lager. Very little in the aroma, just some malt. Flavour is sweet, with light bitter finish. Thin and watery in the palate. Yellow colour, with a frothy white head.

This is the beer I grew up on and in my humble opinion still one of the better standard aussie lagers out there. Pours pale amber with slight caramel malt aroma. Virtually no hop aroma but clean bitterness and light-med malt flavour. A good lawnmower beer.

Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2009
from Bier-Bienne - translucide and bright golden-amber colour with a poor head retention; notes of glue and caramel in the nose; slightly sticky on the mouth, medium-bodied and with some harsh tartness; short fizzy and caramelish aftertaste

1.6
Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 1, 2009
Bottled 375ml. Corny metallic nose. Reminiscence of lemonade, apple and crackers in the taste which is rather metallic. Low bitterness. Unpleasant finish. Very poor.
