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

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

prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2017
Bottle. Soft, sweet hop aroma. Crisp, but over sweet, and quite plain. Its not the worst lager, but its certainly not troubling the best. Overall, a bit 'meh'.

Bottle 375ml, brought back from my sister many thanks. A clear yellow beer with good head. Nose is nutty very lager like, grain notes. Aroma is on grain and wet paper, low body, quite boring, dusty hops, no much more to say.

emincems (125) - TURKEY - AUG 24, 2017
clear golden color with small head. foam needs more duration, but it leaves very thin cover which is enough to protect. aroma is slight corn and herbal hops. taste is not complex, standart lager. malt sweetness is leading, but finish is more balanced. light body, moderate carbonation. soft on palate. not special, but this is drinkable summer lager.

MarcoBasile (467) - 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.
