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.
