John Boston premium lager


imagePicked up a 6 pack of these for a mates BBQ. Wouldn’t normally go for a standard looking lager (especially with the selection at Dan Murphy’s) but it was a hot summer’s afternoon so something crisp and refreshing was in need.

Poured into a shaker glass. The clear gold appearance presents with a fizzy 1 finger head that diminishes quickly to a ring of foam with out much lacing. The aroma is quite subdued. Malt sweetness, grains, vegetables and light wafts of sour dough and biscuit come forward. Mild carbonation and mild-medium bitterness in the mouth. Light bodied. Crisp hops upfront lead to sweet honeyed malts in the mid palate. Grainy, malty finish with a mild bitterness on the back end. Average length. 4.9% ABV. We weren’t expecting a whole lot with this and that’s pretty much how it summed up. As expected, there wasn’t much to review on but it’s a well balanced, sessional lager…. that’s about it.
