COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

AshtonMcCobb (2939) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2013
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a generous head and steady carbonation - you can tell it is well bottle conditioned. The nose is very lemony with some sweetcorn. The taste is more of the same, lemon, going into yoghurt, maybe some meadow flowers. The palate is very good indeed - good creamy body, some bitterness kicks through the middle and finishes really fresh. Overall, very satisfying indeed.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2013
12.7 fl oz / 375ml bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Some mild skunk. Besides that, just some light malt and mild hop. Appearance: Bright yellow translucent body with a large, but diminishing, foamy white head. Taste: Wonderful light, citrus-y hops! It’s interesting; the hops are definitely present, but they are light and refreshing and add just the right amount of bitterness to balance a pretty nice malt presence. Palate: Medium body, but plenty of character. Moderate, citrus-y finish. Overall: Fantastic beer. A wonderful example of what all pilseners should be.

330ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, grainy undertones. Taste is minimally bitter hoppy, citrusy, some lemon and orange zest. Nicely hopped Pilsener.
