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

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
ronaldtheriot (1888) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 2, 2013
James Boags 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 Boags Premium Lager finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. Overall, this is another very good beer. Buy it, and try it! RJT

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.

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 (6972) - 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.

minutemat (5129) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
330ml bottle from Discount Supermarket, Cardiff. Pours clear gold, white head. Sweetcorn / syrup aroma. Taste isnt actually that bad, nicely balanced with a mild sweetness, low bitterness and no off-flavours. Would have again.

KeefOz (1784) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2016
BB 13/10/16. Poured a crystal clear golden mid-amber colour with a one- to two-finger bright white frothy head that retained very well and laced well as rings. Aroma of grain and hints of malt; no obvious hops. taste of slightly sweet citrus; no real bitterness; a bit sour as it warms. Light body. Crisp, clean, smooth and refreshing with a moderate length slightly sweet finish. decent enough while cold.

Jow (3818) - New York, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Havent had one of these since college down under back around turn of century and since pale lagers go well with Indian food ordered. Norma golden colored. Nose is faint hops and light grains. Tastes of grains, hint of piney hops, touch of malt. No off flavors and refreshing enough for what it is.
