3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Easy to drink mass produced pilsner, hoppy and bitter, slightly more on the colour of a lager. Nice sunny day in Auckland, great Sunday afternoon drink.

Bottle - grassy with some soap and pine in the aroma. Crisp dry taste right through to a lingering sharp dry finish. Decent carbonation with a medium body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful golden amber. Really nice to look at. The nose is fruity and citrusy, almost like a white wine. The pallate is similarly winey, with voluptuous and almost ’squishy’ malt leading into a medium level of hoppy bitterness. As the name suggests, it has a good deal of hops for a commercial beer which brings to it a nice crispness but this is somehow let down by the malt which is lacking in this regard. It also feels a tad watery. All in all a decent pilsener, especially for the price paid.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Golden orange pour with a small white head. Light honey and grass on the nose. Lemon is very productive throught the taste with touches of caramel, honey and light grass. Easy drinking with a very balanced bitterness. Nice

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
peachy floral noble hops in the nose, light corn/grainy taste with lingering resinous finish. Headache 10 minutes after the glass, as wit all mac’s beers for me. Too much sugar in the grain bill I guess

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transparent gold, thin white wispy surface head. Really husky lemon-cracker nose. Creamy milk/cracker flavor, light hop bitterness in the finish. Pleasant, balanced, nice stuff, if a bit straightforward.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice doughy malt nose, light honey and some grassy hops. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. The hops are fresh cut grass and flowers, and a touch of lemon. The malts are a bit squishy and out of place in a pils, should crisp and cracker like whereas these are more pale ale like, but it still works. Very nice beer.
