COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A good clean, well made lager. I like the use of the Motueka hops as it adds a different element to the beer. Would drink again.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle, GBK, Liverpool. Typical golden lagery looks with a fast fading white head. Slightly sweet, malty aroma. Bready, insipid flavour. Dry finish. Had worse, but pretty tedious stuff.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2009
Draft at an Irish pub (can’t remember the name) in downtown Auckland. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Light and earthy, with hay, malt, and wheat in the aroma and flavor. Simple and just as good or better than the American macro lagers.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2009
It is golden with a creamy white head. The aroma is mild with notes of malt and flower. The flavor is mild too with notes of malt, flower and the slightly dry finish has light citrus notes. It’s uncomplicated and easy to drink.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle. The hops don’t seem to do their job for this one. Light and malty aroma, and sweet taste. Palate is thin with low carbonation. Yellow colour with a thin head that doesn’t last.

berkshirejohn (4487) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
330ml bottle from Waitrose. Straw with minimal white head; musty malt aroma; sweet malty flavour with very light carbonation; lacking any hops. Not exactly unpleasant, but nothing going for it.

Skinnyviking (6976) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle. Medium high and lasting off-white creamy head. Clear golden body. Mild and sweet malt aroma. Mild and sweet relatively thin bodied malt flavor without much hops bitterness. Low carbonation and a short sweet aftertaste.

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2009
330ml bottle. Poured amber and gold in colour with a thin white wispy head and the foam drifts to one side of the glass. Aroma of floral hops with a touch of citrus and dried fruit. Taste is okay and goes down well. Feels smooth in the mouth and would be good for a session.
