COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

375 ml bottle. Bright pale Gold color. Decent sized fluffy white head. Faint grainy malt nose. Zesty, light bodied, grainy malt flavor with metallic notes. Some citrus hops, but barely evident. A good hot weather lager. Nothing more.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Light fresh springy tasting. Looks like a lager. Tastes like a lager. Fresher and more spirited than some commercial lagers. Would be my preference. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mass market lager, not much else to say, blends with the rest. Thirst quenching ability is saving grace.

erickok (5533) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2015
Golden, very clear, nice good looking head. Watery, light bitter, slightest if yeast character. Low bitterness. Not bad actually for what it is. (Bottle from Saveur Bire)

9.2.2015. Pours golden with white head. Aroma and taste have some grain, grass and light malts and hops. Basic stuff.

Morboso (146) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2015
When I used to drink just lagers I found this to be above the average aussie mainstream. Now after trying more beer styles and going back to Boags it is pretty pedestrian. Too sweet, not much flavour but ok on a hot day.

375ml bottle. Clears golden with a medium head. Slightly sweet nose. Refreshing aroma, good hops, a bit of malts, not boring indeed.
