COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
James Boags Premium Light is a full flavoured light beer with a smooth, pleasant bitterness. The aroma is clean and fresh with a malty, fruity character similar to that of its full strength counterpart, James Boags Premium. The flavour balance provides an easy-drinking refreshing beer style with a pale golden colour and excellent head retention and lacing.
Formally 2.9% ABV

Best low alcohol beer. Crisp and clean taste. A lighter version of James Boag Premium Lager. Slight bitterness and hops taste. Great when cold on a summers day when a light beer is required.

TedE (1248) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2015
375ml bottle into schooner glass. ABV is 2.7%. Peppery hop nose, clear amber beer with small fluffy white head. Medium carbonation. Mineral water mouthfeel and taste. Finish is a touch sour with some lasting bitterness. Typical light beer wateriness unfortunately.

375ml bottle. Basically meh... But has just enough hop bitterness to raise it above the morass of other "premium light" beers in Australia. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Not too bad for a light, I would like it a little hoppier but still ok. If you have to then try it.

Light fizzy nothing too outstanding but then again does what it says. Easy to drink refreshing and not bad while your waiting for a pizza and have to drive home!

KeefOz (1800) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
BB 05/03/15. Poured a crystal clear amber with 5mm of white foamy head that diminished quickly. Aroma grainy, no hops - bland. Taste strongly malt and very slight bitterness. Light body. Dry, very light, slightly metallic on finish.

M_Sack (675) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Good bitterness for a light beer. Not much malt to talk about and an expected hollow end palate. Not bad for a light if you had to.

Draught at OKeefes, Launceston. Sampled on August 6, 2013.
Clear straw yellow color, white head. Malty, thin, a bit grainy taste. Grainy aftertaste. Thin fizzy mouthfeel, low grainy bitterness. Also some wet cardboard aftertaste. Sweet, malty, cardboard scent.
hmm, very low scores, but it really wasnt to my liking.
