COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Methode is bottle fermented and conditioned to give a natural, more consistent carbonation and flavour. Due to the natural brewing process of Methode Moa, a light, beneficial sediment will remain. This sediment protects the beer from premature aging and leaves full, slightly spicy characters on the palate.

Tasting Notes
Moa Methode is a German style pilsner with a high bitterness balanced with a relatively full mouth feel. Citrus hop characters dominate aroma with the presence of fresh bread yeast notes. It can either be poured carefully off the lees or alternatively with the lees mixed in if a strong yeast character is desired. Moa Methode is a complex pilsner best served in a pilsner glass at approximately 6˚C to maximise aromatic release.

Pyobon (900) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2012
(bottle) Poured hazy straw coloured with a big white head. Rich and complex aroma with spices and sweet esters. Light body with plentiful bright carbonation. Flavour starts lightly fruity (citrus with banana hints) and moves to a nice complex spicy bitter finish. Overall a very impressive and drinkable beer.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle. Hazy goldenrod. Aroma of subdued citrus pith. Palate finishes a little buttery and not as clean and crisp as the nose suggests. Comes across as refreshing because of the high carbonation. Not bad. Has a saison character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An exciting pilsner/ saison style. Very herby nose, mildly spiced. Purchased a 1.5l magnum of it would you believe? Easy drinking and well balanced, bitterness of hops gives way to a Smooth finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Baz7778 (58) - SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
This is an interesting brew, sweet hop aroma on the nose, it’s bittering finish from champagne yeast also makes it pils/saison in style. Mouth feel is great from natural carbonation this is a great brew and worth trying ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StuartCarter (21) - Alabama, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Aroma: clean bitterness. Appearance: beautiful cloudy gold colour with streaming bubbles like champagne. Taste: crisp, dry bitterness with a delicate lingering bitterness and subtle malt character. A wonderfully different beer that drinks much more like a champagne! Serve in champagne flute for the full effect.
