Moa Original Lager is a classically brewed lager created from a blend of New Zealand premium malts and world famous Nelson Sauvin hops. This beer shows an array of crisp and dry characters on the palate but also has a clean floral nose.

Tasting Notes
Moa Original is an easy drinking, European style pilsner with a medium to high level of bitterness. Ester levels are low, and a slight hop aroma should be detected. The finish is dry as a result of the bitterness and the high level of attenuation. Moa Original is best served in a pilsner glass at approximately 6˚C to maximise aromatic release. A beer for any occasion.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Dorada ligeramente turbia. Aroma con predominio de la levadura. En boca buen amargor, toque cítrico y algo metálico también. Pero el conjunto es agradable, refrescante y bebible.

mkel07 (4664) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from Dan Murphy’s 070515. Not a lot going on with this beer. Straw coloured with a white head and not a lot of aroma. Flavour is minimal as is the finish.

Bottle. Aroma is mainly malty, some hoppy fruitiness. Rich malty body balanced with light hops. Good lager i think.

Moderately hopped, with floral and spruce notes. Golden colour and fine strong head. Easy to drink, but no award winner

Not much in the aroma. Some pils malt but that’s about it. Flavor is sweet (slightly fruity) with an almost balanced, clean bitterness. Appearance is just off crystal clear and bright yellow. Little head. High carbonation. I’d like it better with the sweetness dialed back a tad and more in the aroma (though that could be my senses at the moment).

Little to differentiate it from countless other bog standard premium lagers.

Draught pint at the Tipping Point Brewing Co on Wyndham Street in Hong Kong.Light golden amber colour, with a small white head which disappears relatively quickly. Good clarity, with a light aroma and body. Slightly sweet, malts, not at all hoppy. Slightly bitter aftertaste.
