It’s been a busy few months at Mac’s, and as a result of some hard graft on craft, this August will see Mac’s launch a new pale ale, Shady Pale, and re-release an absent favourite, Great White.
Shady Pale joins Macs’ stable of craft beers as an easygoing, honest, balanced pale ale that pours a golden amber colour with a brilliant white head of foam. Taking its inspiration from that stalwart of English brewing, pale ale, Shady Pale is brewed with a formidable foursome of local hops. Its flavour strikes the perfect balance between light malty sweetness and crisp bitterness, making this a very refreshing drop that’s perfect for any occasion.
“We’re excited to add a pale ale to the Mac’s family,” says Mac’s brand manager Hayden Harvey. “It’s a style of beer that’s becoming increasingly popular so we’re happy to be able to provide it to drinkers of Mac’s.”
Mac’s is also re-launching its popular beer Great White, a naturally brewed New Zealand interpretation of the cloudy Belgian Witbier style. Imparting aromas of bubble-gum, banana, Turkish delight and rose petals, Great White is returning in-bottle for the first time since specialist brewing equipment was damaged in the Christchurch earthquake.Since then it had previously only been available on tap due to small amounts being able to be produced in keg only. From August, it will be back on shelf in its traditional 6-pack, alongside a brand new 12-pack.
Both products will be available in 6-packs (RRP $14.99) and handy 12-packs (RRP $24.99), and on tap from August.
