COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bays Gold Lager - A pale lager with good use of local Hallertauer and Saaz hops. Gold has at least 6 weeks of cold maturation which results in an extremely drinkable lager. Bays Gold Lager was judged New Zealand's Best Lager at the 2003 New Zealand International Beer Awards.

Looks like lager ought, golden with a good finger of bright white head in the glass. Good clarity and carbonation as well. Excellent aromas of grapefruit and herbs with some dusty grain present as well. Some sweetness present in the flavour with tasty grain and grape characters. Sessionable stuff.

The head is mediu, the bod light. It smells malty, bit sweet. The taste is malty, bit hoppy, bit grain.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy golden with a small, rough, white head - gee, some of these Nelson Bays beers really look like crap. Weird aroma of prunes. Medium body with lightly floral notes and a rather flat carbonation. Underlying sweetness. Rather messy and confusing, doesn’t appear very fresh. 200208

Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
LIght and slightly hazy in body. Small head. Very fruity aroma. Also fruity in the taste - maby some "apple". Short and fruity aftertaste.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 27, 2007
Tasted Jan07 draught. Misty golden colour pours with a this dishwash type head. Soft marmalade / citrus nose. Non-descript start but reasonable thru the finish, slightly drying towards the end. Probably best very cold.

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 Pours with a thin head. Subtle but intriguing aromas - hint of lime and a tantalising maltiness. Palate is firm and surprisingly creamy. Smooth, malty flavours with green apple notes. Above-average lager.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2003
hazy gold colour, small creamy head, heavy malty nose, very sweet malty tatste. A very mello sort of beer.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2003
This review is a year after the last, and so the hint of grape noted seems to have disappared. This is a reasonably malty Euro style lager that is not offensive in the least.

Flat. Not much body. Can’t get a decent belch out of it at all. Next!

i think it was OK, a bit fruity (grapes-as the others have mentioned), and perhaps a bit of a malty character, but it wasn’t well noticed.
