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

ronaldtheriot (1934) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 2, 2013
James Boag’s Premium Lager has a thin, white head, somewhat of a lacing sheen left on the glass, a hazy, yellow-golden appearance, streaming bubbles, and some suspended brown particles visible throughout. The aroma is of pungent, sweet barley malt, sugar, and white bread. Flavor is of sweet, bold malt, white bread, a shadow of paper, and a nice balancing hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium, and James Boag’s Premium Lager finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. Overall, this is another very good beer. Buy it, and try it! RJT

MarcoBasile (422) - DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
Pours golden with a white frothy head. Light aroma. Grain, malts and slightly skunked. (Damn green bottles). Taste is equally as light. This is Australia’s equivalent to Coors Light.

PapaCanard (150) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Bière plutôt aqueuse d’un blond assez clair. Se bout facilement. Peu de goût ce qui est dommage. Reste néanmoins une bière agréable à boire après une journée de travail. Rafraîchissante.

2.5
OnTheTrail (508) - Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2017
Pours clear very light yellow, slight whit head. + is malt, slight sour apple, typical pale lager. Flavor is lightly malty, touch of hops. Light mouthfeel. Typical for the style, nothing special, sessionable enough, quenching after a hot bike ride.

Nice crispy clean lager. A good mix of bitter and sweet with nothing offensive. Good all year beer.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Aroma - spicy hops and cereal malt. Appearance - the body is a clean pale, with some nucleation. The head is white, and around 2/3". The head fades into a foam. Some decent lacing. Taste - has a cereal like malt. Hops are spicy. Palate - light body, smooth texture, the carbonation is average, the finish is crisp and dry.

Steffan (87) - WALES - JUL 29, 2016
Good two finger head, malty character, taste a bit of corn syrup, grain then a slightly bitter follow through. Easy on the palate. Overall a solid fullish lager. I quite liked it.

BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
375ml bottle at the July 2016 Shrewsbury Bottle Share meeting: cheers Mat. Bright, clean and clear golden body with a fast fading white head. Corn led aroma and taste, but not all bad, as it tasted OK, if a little on the sweet side.

3.1
minutemat (5514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
330ml bottle from Discount Supermarket, Cardiff. Pours clear gold, white head. Sweetcorn / syrup aroma. Taste isn’t actually that bad, nicely balanced with a mild sweetness, low bitterness and no off-flavours. Would have again.
