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.

(12.7oz thanks to ericandersnavy) clear pale yel, lasting bubbles. Nose of corn, butter and apple. Taste of metal, cardboard. Not good. I seem to disagree with others though.

beernbourbon (1421) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 16, 2010
Green bottle. Pour is a cloudy deep yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is mostly malty with a hint of floral hop and light grass. Flavor is also mostly malty but quite smooth. Light green bottle flavor along with light floral and grass notes. Not bad.

Green bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a white head and golden body. Aroma of apple, honey and grain. Taste is watery, plastic, styrofoam. Light bubbles. Blah.

bvc (1180) - Kenmore, 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 (5738) - 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.

KapitiCritique (375) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - JAN 31, 2010
Lightly chilled 375 ml green bottle. Distinct nose at the start that fades quickly. Serious lacing, off-white head persisted for a few minutes but dissipates fast. yellow palour, not really clear. Light skunkiness I have come to expect from green bottles. Hoppy taste covers the entire tongue, nice. There is a background aroma that is vague but reminiscent of a mild perfume, slightly fruity.

My bottle [375ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a cloudy yellow/pale gold with a large diminishing frothy white head. Nice lacing. Aroma: That’s not bad at all: Grassy hops, breaded malt, some grain and herbs. Flavour: Wow, I’m surprised how much I like this! Lots of grassy hops (which I wasn’t expecting), some citrus fruit, yeast, herbs and pale malt. Finish is pretty bitter, in a good way, for the style. Average to medium bodied. This was a nice surprise, it’s a really good Pilsener.

Viper666 (2811) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
Bouteille 375ml. De couleur dorée foncée et voilée. Nez de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches, foin, notes de gazon) et floral, légèrement fruité (agrumes et zest), moyen de céréales avec des notes de pain et d’épices (poivre). Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et un peu croustillant ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Léger goût de levures fruitées (agrumes et léger zest) accompagné d’un goût moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales avec un léger goût de pain puis à mesure qu’on approche de la finale, l’amertume de houblon s’accentue en étant plus asséchante, plus herbeuse (herbes mouillées, notes de foin), légèrement florale et aux petites notes citriques. Lorsqu’on atteint la finale, un léger goût épicé (poivre doux) s’installe en arrière-plan du houblon. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux et aux notes florales avec un léger goût fruité (zest d’agrumes).

HogTownHarry (6322) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle ( 375ml-green ). Shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Cloudy and very bubbly pale gold with a large fluffy/sticky lasting white head, nice lace drapes. Aroma of dry grass and light lemon, not sweet - quite mild. Tastes of lemongrass and very dry mild herbal bitterness - the bitterness does build some as it warms. Light body, a bit astringent, a surprising long, fairly bitter finish. Pretty solid, no plastic, crisp and pretty bold-flavoured.
