I only know one person who has tried it and he hasn't been too helpful with the details of what it is like. All he has really told me is that it's a 'summer' beer and thus its release was badly timed- nothing about the quality of the beer.

Anyone tried it? What's it like?

I haven't tried it, but a pleb at work was telling me about it today.

He was throwing around words like smooth, classy, slightly citrusy, fizzy. So it could either be a little bit wheaty, or another lame corona clone.

I don't think I'm game enough to try and find out.

Yeah, Corona-like was the closest he got to a description.

We have the opposite problems- my friend gave such a brief explanation I got no info, and the person at your work used so many words an answer was impossible to find.

it is rubbish. had some high hopes for it as they described it as having a hint of citrus.
it wasnt there, nor was any body or flavour. carlton cold on steriods basically.

If your talking about St George its crap. I think its just a gimmick beer targeting either females or corona drinkers.
I had it once and it had no body at all and i think bobby hit the nail on teh head with calton cold on steroids.

I had a taste over the weekend.

As others have said, it's pretty much like a Corona, maybe with a little bit more taste, not much body. Very much directed towards chicks and corona drinkers

I'm assuming you mean the Boag's St. George. Teeny bopper drink, enough said.

Sells for $10+ a 4 pack (1st proof of teeny bopper crap, Cruisers and Stoli's come in 4 packs-yes I know guiness does too but that's different).

Comes in a clear bottle with a goldy coloured label. Looks good, and you look very sexy and appealing drinking it :chug: ;) (2nd proof).

It's nearly tastless. Like a watered down corona and I've also heard suggestions it should be served with a slice of lemon or lime to give it that citrus taste it's supposed to have. It is aimed at the new beer drinkers that don't like beer. More like a premixed drink than a beer, very unoffensive. (3rd proof it's aimed at 18 yr olds).

Yeah, bit disappointing. They could have done better but I think they are trying to tap into the booming market of premixed lolly water drinks. Aparently premixed drinks are up there with the no. sellers of all alcoholic beverages in Australia.

Cheers, JD

Hey,...Duvel comes in 4-packs.

I refuse to believe that it is not a real beer. :lol:

Nearly as bad as that Carlton cold shot crap.

Remember that? The beer with the measure of vodka thrown in. <_<

They're really aiming at a target-market methinks. :angry:

The citurs flavour is probably surposed to come form the slice of lime they assume you are going to stick in it's neck. :p

:p Sorry Weizguy.

Ok, not all beers come in a 6 pack. But this one is definitely a chicks drink.

FWIW I haven't bought any Duvel's in a pack of 4. Usually only end up buying one or two over the bar at a time (which is an expen$ive little experience).

I've enjoyed the Belgians I've had lately. Quite a selection actually but gee I can't afford to buy too many at the bar. At ~$10 a pop it adds up real quick. I need to sneak one of the Duvel glasses out, might have to accidentally fall in the girlfriends hand bag :ph34r: . It helps subsidise the cost of the beer if the glass is included ;)

Cheers, JD

Tried this a few months back at Shout down the coast.

Very much like corona to me, pretty much an aussie version to capture the market that drinks corona, becks and henni etc I'd say.

Like it or not, it's probably a good idea that an aussie company gave these brews a run for their money as there is a big market for these beers.

In my opinion, anything that's like Corona isn't worth buying, let alone drinking. Someone told me the only reason you put a wedge of lemon in Corona is to kill the bugs in it.

Actually, I heard the reason was to keep flies etc out of the bottle, but I haven't cared enough to find out if this was the truth.
