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.

Yellow gold with a decent thick white head. Citrus lemon and spice dominant in aroma, some bready yeast notes there too. Crisp bitterness and light sour bread. Light pepper, spice and citrus finish, great refreshing pils.

Really good for a pilsner. Interesting flavours of spices (almost like a Heffeweizen) with some hoppy goodness. Decent!

Bottle. Golden and slightly cloudy. A touch of spice produces a different flavour. The finish is quite sweet and left lots of lacing. Interesting.

exeter (286) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Another volcano of head. It acted like it had been in prison too long before I released it. Once it calmed down and learn to control itself i got...some nice lacing. There’s an earthy aroma to it... with a bit of hops as well. The taste is mostly the same, flavours of straw and just a hint of the hops.
