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

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.

anstei (1687) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 17, 2015
375ml bottle. Clears golden with a medium head. Slightly sweet nose. Refreshing aroma, good hops, a bit of malts, not boring indeed.

Best Australian Beer on the market! Smooth, consistent, almost equal to Bavarian beers in quality!

Marduk (6876) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 25, 2015
330ml bottle (Aussie Backpackers Pub, Riga). Clear golden colour. Small size, white head, stays. Hop extract, sweet, corny aroma. Smells like proper low-quality macro. Hop extract, corny, papery taste. Not good. Never again!

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 22, 2015
It?s an ok - no flaws or off flavours. Hop bitterness but no aroma or flavour, a trace of malt flavour. I hear there?s 30% sugar used for the dry finish. Little bitterness, easy drinking. Easy to knock back, just don?t expect any flavour.

TedE (1143) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2015
375ml bottle into schooner glass. Barely discernable malt nose. Yellow/amber with lasting white head. Nice maltiness up front. Very little bitterness at the end. Much better than other Aussie mainstream lagers.

Dervock (1144) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle - pours gold with short lived head. Aroma is sweet malt, bit biscuity. Taste s sweet up front the a lingering transition to a dry finish. Medium palate. Sessionable.

Im not a lager fan at all - but this is a pleasant beer for a thirsty post-golf hacker like me - quite lemony - refreshing - better than the average mass produced lager.

sm89walt (2010) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Pale golden, effervescent and with a small, fading white head. A zippy lemon firmness with grain, grass and subtle pale malts. Light to medium body with a good bitterness to finish of fair length. Crisp and refreshing, though a little over-carbonated for my tastes.

Pyobon (1365) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2014
(Can) Clear gold with ok white head. Aroma is ok, slightly sweet slightly grassy hops. Light body, well carbonated. Taste is light malt with some ok bitterness in end. Overall quite drinkable but not great.
