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.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 (Bottle 33,5 cl) McCashinís, a small and proundly independent brewery situated in the middle of the hop growing area in NZ around Nelson. Pale golden, with quite a decent head. Fairly classical lager type with a nice hop-bite. Surprisingly full body considering the low alcohol. 270603

(On tap) Courtesy of yalnikim. Clear, pale golden with a small, white head. Lightly sweet, malty nose. Medium body with notes of malt, brewing cereal and fruit. Dry finish. In the better end of NZ Pale Lagers, yet still just a Pale Lager though. 4/2/4/2/8=2.0 310108

Pours well, decent head which died away quite quickly. Golden to light amber colour with medium size bubbles. Taste was bland with a slight hoppy aftertaste which disappeared very quickly. Not as watery as Fosters, but then this isnít too bad for a mass produced beer. Best drunk freezing cold on a hot antipodean day.

Pale golden body with a good size white head that left some lacing and hung around for a while. From there it went downhill, taste was a bit bland and watery, some grapefruit, a bit metallic and not that much else.

Tall, stiff head. rather malty and dry, better than standard lagers, but it’s difficult to notice any hops. A decent meal drink or to fresh'n up a hot sunny day.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Dark yellow beer with an OK head. Malty and mild citrus aroma. Flavor is a little strange and undefineable. Watery with some malt, citrus and nut. A different lager and not very interesting.

Bottled. Pale golden, Brief papery aroma. Dry yet fruity. The falvour is extremely short which leaves a vacuum behind it along with a stinging metallic feeling on your tongue, and a wish for a beer to wash it all down.

Ungstrup (31474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2003
A golden beer with a fine but fast disappearing head. The aroma is malty sweet , but a simple pilsener aroma. The flavor is a weird artificial malty one - dry but not very carbonated. It ends on an OK bitterness. A really boring lager.
