Moa Methode Pilsner is a clean, crisp lager with a dry finish. A late throw of Pacifica and Motueka hops gives some upfront citrus aromatics, and the champagne yeast used in secondary fermentation imparts complex spicy characters.

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.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle… Tally Tasting ‘10… Hazy yellow lager with a huge, white, frothy head. Good retention. The nose is spicy, herbal, grainy and a touch skunky/lightstruck. Light-bodied and fizzy. The flavor isn’t bad; well-balanced with sturdy bitterness. Finishes crisp, bitter and a touch skunky. If the beer had been fresher and the bottle had been treated better on its warm, bumpy trip from New Zealand, I probably would have awarded a higher score… but it wasn’t, so I won’t. Bottle courtesy of Ohmybock!

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 Rerate Picked up at New Leaf Market, Tallahassee - aroma much more pronounced and lemony, nice hazy pour, crisp pilsener flavor with some honey sweetness. Original 2.9 Tallahassee Tasting at Proof/Liquor Loft - light gold pour, white foamy head. Saaz-induced hoppy aroma. Flavor has some hints of lemon, a bit of bubblegum. some grainy notes in the back end. Decently thick mouthfeel. Decent. Thanks to Ohmybock for bringing this.

Bottled. A slightly hazy golden beer with a huge lazing white head. The aroma has notes of yeast, lemonpeal, and a bit of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemonpeal, coriander, yeast, fruit, minerals, and malt, leading to a bitter finish where the lemony note ligners.
