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, Mac's 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.

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.

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.

Don't know what beer the others had, but this beer tasted like Mac wanted to brew something to rival Lion Red and Steinlager. By achieving this we are presented with a thin and lifeless lager, with no aroma and fleeting taste. It helps you burp.

Batch brewed under Bavarian purity laws. This is very refreshing beer. Nice flavour but very short on palate.
