Very refreshing, solid but unexciting taste. If you're flying Qantas economy class, ask for a can of this - it will be the highlight of your meal.

I thought this lager did its job. It was refreshing on a hot day and, then, cleared the palate for appetizers.
And it Looked a pretty golden with the sun getting lower. Smells were mostly malt, but undistinguished. Taste was good enough; hops balanced the malt. While its thin-ness might make it not preferred for a session, its bubbles cut the fat and improved the finger food. I give high marks for Boag's Premium going well with a variety of appetizers and cheeses.

MJ's 1999 "Guide" gave it 2.5 of 4 stars and called it "clean, fresh, malty."
It also is listed on the "1001 Beers To Drink Before You Die" possibly because it is an inclusive list and Tasmania should be included. The list is eight years old and, by now, I hope Tasmania has moved on to fuller flavors.

Bottle from Nannup beer store. Mass market lager, not much else to say, blends with the rest. Thirst quenching ability is saving grace. Can't tel the difference between the "Draught" and the "Premium Lager".
