2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured a rich gold with yellow highlights and a frothy white head. Aroma was musky with some hay, moderate malt, honey and citrus at the back. Taste was initially sweet and smooth with more honey followed by a mild bitterness with biscuity notes towards the end. Light bodied with a watery texture and short/sweet finish. Not to bad for a commercial larger.

Draught, a bright gold with a filmy head. A grassy hop aroma, but with a bready malt touch. A sweetish malt flavour, some ginger and a generous hop, but effervescent, palate. Crisp, but not too dry.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sweet fizzy lager that tastes the same as any other NZ insipid lager. Unimaginative and undistinguishable from macs gold and export gold.
