Around The World In 80 Beers episode 161: James Boags Premium Lager
Something to start my third trip around the world - a macro brew from Tasmania.

James Boags Premium Lager

Pours a clear, bubbly golden colour with a large head.

First sip: Slightly sweet malts with a bready flavour, followed by a slight hops bitterness. Mouth-feel is thin and dry, and a bit gassy.

Since this is a macro-lager from a beer factory I didn't expect much. And this beer delivers that in spades. It's not horrible, and quite refreshing on a hot day like today (36C/97F/309.1K). That's about it. It doesn't have a lot of taste to distinguish it from any other macro-lager. I'd drink this at a BBQ or party if it was on offer, but I wouldn't go out of my way to acquire it unless specifically ask to do so.

What's a "macro brew"?

BTW - Have you thought of starting a list of your favorite 10 brews?

Macro brew is one that comes from the big breweries, where they make it in batches of thousands of litres.

Ah, that's a good name for it.

No thoughts on a top 10 brews? I guess I'd better resume work on that spreadsheet one day.

There are far too many good brews. I can't pick just 10.
