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.

A light Pilsner that carry’s itself well. Very fruity on the nose and palate, with a light hop bitterness that creeps in over the duration of the beer. Malt bill is light with a lack of palate weight.

This beer tastes very much like, and has the appearance of a weissbier not a pilsner. Disappointed as I was led to believe by the label that it was a pilsner.

Bottled@HBF. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Leather, some banana, citrus in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Lemon, white pepper. Strange. Like a witbier.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle poured heavily into pint glass - sediment included. Hazy light gold, with a thick rocky white head. Citrusy, bready aromas. Mid-sweet, then a long, bitter grassy finish. Tasty.

Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Serving: Draft. It pours a pale yellow color with a small white head. The nose is light with a hint of grain. The flavor has some noble hop bitterness and a light grainy sweetness, but is otherwise unremarkable. Light body with average carbonation. Good for a hot day I suppose.

portableparty (1911) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a very large soapy sudsy head that slowly fades to a film and collar. Aroma is slightly skunky, but floral and signs of dry hops and lingering citrus. Taste has mild bitter dry hops that are floral with some citrus and malt and a crisp dry finish. Very enjoyable will seek out again.

brontebeach (156) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Pours from bottle cloudy straw with a bubbly white head that thins quite quickly. Citrus, fruity, on the palate and a hint of fruit in the nose. Pleasant but not one must seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
