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.

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.

bvc (1239) - Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2010
375ml capped. Pours a hazy straw golden with a huge white head. Lightly sweet crisp grassiness, light pils malt...refreshing smelling. Good carb and a touch of ’chewy-ness’ to it. The noble hops are nice, still pretty crisp, digging the slight unfiltering here. Not sure how old this is, but i’m liking it.

riversideAK (6098) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Nose is grassy and lemony with light skunky notes, and a little bread. Pale hazy golden yellow fizzy soapy frothy head. Clean grassy flavors, hints of sweetness, a little dusty. Lively carb, almost belgian in a sense. Nice pils with a touch of dryness and sharp pepper in finish.
