COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Five Hop is a New Zealand take on a traditional English ale. A range of Nelson Hops including Cascade, Pacifica, Motueka, Hallertau and Sauvin give Moa Five Hop a savoury, hoppy nose and creamy, honeyed characters on the palate. A well-balanced companion to any meal.

Tasting Notes
Moa Five Hop Winter Ale utilises pilsner, Vienna, Munich and crystal malts to produce a distinctive mouth feel and flavour. New Zealand grown B Saaz and Hallertau aroma hops are used to produce an ale with an extremely high bitterness. An English ale yeast completes this ‘Brewer’s Beer’. Moa Five Hop is a strong ale fermented at warm temperatures to maximise aromatic and floral aromas. The English ale yeast provides a low apparent attenuation and sweeter finish. Bottle conditioned, Moa Five Hop will age well. Moa Five Hop is best served at approximately 9-11˚C in a tulip glass.
