A light-coloured lager conditioned over 30 days. It has a good head, balanced sweet/bitter palate and a clean aftertaste. Brewed for the connoisseur, Macís Gold is brewed using only choice Motueka hops and quality barley. The bottom fermentation process of brewing by using a gravity system produces a naturally-brewed, all malt lager that contains no added chemicals, preservatives or colouring.

One of the more complex beers Iíve had. Entry to the mouth is pleasant, but the after taste is alightly grungy and almost dirty. Tried two bottles. Second one was slightly better. Yep, Iíd drink it if it were offered, but wouldnít go out of my way.

Pretty boring, but fairly drinkable as long as itís not the focus of your attention.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2006
Light golden appearance with a slightly fruity overtone, this beer was an uninspiring selection and I quickly moved on to others.

Choos (705) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2006
Aroma: lagery and citrus notes. Appearance: pale gold with a large soap bubbly head and large bubbles rising to the surface. Flavour: some maltiness with quite a few hoppy notes. Palate: thin and hoppy aftertaste with quite a bit of carbonation. Actually could be refreshing.

Looks, smells, tastes, and finishes like nothing - itís as if you havenít drunk anything at all. Although there is nothing particularly unpleasant to take away from this beer, it is one of the most boring beers Iíve tried in a very long time.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 A Mes rate: Spicy hoppy aroma. Very light blonde looks with a crap head. Yeasty flavour with some fairly apparent hoppy bitterness. Strong malt throughout with some slight citrus notes. Thin moutfeel. Cool bottle though.

winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottled: Pours a clear pale straw colour with medium carbonation and a fluffy white head. Lightly fruity hop nose. Body is very thin - as is the flavour, nothing offensive simply because there is nothing much of anything. Mild bitter finish, a lawnmower beer at best. Better still upgrade to the Sassy Red instead. Thanks Beer Legend.

JonMoore (2059) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a slim white head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is fairly bland. Not much going on. Thin bodied. Doesnít taste bad, just pretty boring.

DuffMan (8822) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Golden, faint hops on nose and palate, definitely thin in the body, but refreshing.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Very pale golden colour, no head. Aroma is grainy with some earthy and herbal type of hop that Iíve never tasted before. Flavour is reasonably balanced with both interesting hop flavour and some malty character. Wonít win any prizes, but at least it tries.
