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.

emacgee (4613) - 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.

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.

Aroma: grassy, banana, light citrus. Appearance: light golden, cloudy, nice white head. Taste: spice, medium bitterness, banana and quite a wheat beer flavour for a pilsner. Palate: high carbonation, smooth in the mouth, high residual bitterness. Overall: interesting aromas and flavours, spice and wheat beer flavours accompanying classic pilsner feel. Enjoyable.

From AC Beer Fest. Odd pils. The aroma is grassy, sour, barnyard, a little off. The appearance is hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is sour, grassy, earthy, yeasty. The finish is sour, yeasty, spicy, a bit like unsweetened champagne. Not bad.
