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.

330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - A slightly hazy golden beer with a huge lazing white head. The aroma has notes of yeast, lemon rind and a bit of malt. The flavour is sweet with notes of lemon zest, coriander, yeast, fruit, minerals, and malt, leading to a bitter finish where the lemony note lingers.

lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2013
average, nowhere near as good as their imperial pilsner. fairly bland and not much better than a typical lager, just has a bit more hop bitterness to improve things a bit.

DylansDad (472) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 30, 2013
Aroma was lemons and lime and grass and hay. Good start. Taste was same with the addition of wheat beer-like banana; marks off for that , but still it wasn’t enough to ruin this otherwise delicious beer. Carbonation at the end a little too coarse for me.

emacgee (4426) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours a bright straw yellow with a profuse sticky white head. Absolutely beautiful pour, a torrent of carbonation swirls around the glass for the duration of the liquid. Wonderful aroma, peppery and dry with fresh cut grass and citrus zest. Absolutely spot on, dry and zesty with fresh cracked pepper and citrus rind. Spicy bitterness leaves just the right grip on the tongue. Light and dry in body and palate with grated citrus zest on the finish.

laiti (7703) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 20, 2013
33 cl bottle @ HBF’13
Aroma has soapy citrus – feels like a witbier. Foamy palate is too high on CO2. Flavour has soapy citrus, some grainy notes and grass. More like witbier than a pils.
