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.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
This light yellow beer poured with a huge off-white head that started flowing as soon as the cap was popped. This is a pretty good lager – a substantial caramel malt base and appropriate hopping.

madquacker (1036) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2008
Enormous frothy head. Bite at the back, tarty and flat. Feels like alot more alcohol than 5.5%. Very morish beer.

Muggus69 (1175) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2008
Corked 750ml bottle. Slightly hazy straw body, sizeable creamy white head leaving clumpy lace. Particularly tart citrus aroma; lemon, grapefruit, some grainy malt. Body driven by plenty of zesty hop character; grapefruit again, passiofruit, melon in there, some grassiness with a reasonably decent grainy biscuit malt backbone. Finish is quite bitter, not too dry, quite clean. Clean lager with spicy, citrusy/fruity hops typical of NZ varieties. Easy going and pretty nice in general, though the corked bottle seems a bit unnessesary.

KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle in Hanmer Springs. Beer advertised as "Moa - Original" I think its this one. Description said Pilsner styled but if so its very untraditional. Cloudy pale/golden beer. Mild aroma, pleasant enough. Malty tasting beer for its colour with yeasty, citrus and perhaps banana flavours coming through in after taste. Is this a lager? Different tasting beer, not too bad. Expensive however.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle - 375ml. Cloudy blond body topped with a thick white frothy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with coriander and spicy hints. Nice, sharp hoppy taste with malty and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. I am not sure this is a Lager. Well done!

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2008
Almost clear, golden body with a lasting short white head. I like the bitterness in this one, certainly can taste the yeast, grassiness and citrus. Yes this does taste like a premium lager.

ABUSEDGOAT (2361) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Hazy golden, very large head that lasts. Aroma is grass, bread, lightly fruity with a little bit of yeast. Medium to light body, fairly high carbonation. I really wanted to like this more.
