2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clean, dry, hoppy lager that shows faint glimpses of the white wine character that Nelson Sauvin are known well for. The fruitiness comes across much like skinless pear, Chardonnay, bubble gum and such, with a pale malt cracker and toasted bread character. Medium-light body, medium sweetness in the approach, drying in a relatively bitter finish. It’s cleanly fermented and the hops are juicy but the malt expression is mild. There is a noticeable twang of corn syrup and the carbonation seems forced rather than natural, which gives it a coarseness not found in other Moa products. Clear gold with a small white head. From bottle.
