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.

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.

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle at Beerd, Bristol. Very flavoursome - lovely floral herby hops, with classic pils yeast/malt or whatever. But genuinely (heyyyy) very good.

Nickls (1979) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Tap. Nice fluffy two finger of white head, on a murky dark hazy marigold. Berry hops and hay in the aroma. Bit biscuity, berry hops, dry finish. Lighter to medium body. Nice vibrant carbonation. Solid but could be much fresher of a sample. Need to try fresh...
