On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Dark orange-amber appearance with an off-white head. The aroma is dank hops, tropical fruits, citrus, floral, light sweet malts and light skunk. Similar flavor, lightly bitter and earthy. Light to medium body with a crisp feel and a dry finish. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice light pale ale with plenty of funky yeast flavours and aromas almost like a Belgian ipa, bit watery on the palate but the hops offer nice bitterness and mild citrus. Ok

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines, Dalry. Pours a golden orange with creamy white head - lots of loose bits, but kept most of them in the bottle! Very fruity nose, classic Nelson Sauvin white grape notes, same on the taste. Good bitterness, good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a murky golden-orange with a slim creamy head. The nose has grapefruit and pith note and this is pretty much replicated on the taste. The palate is close to medium body with a creamy texture and a very dry clean finish. Very single dimensional but a very nice single dimension. This has many of the characteristics of a craft cask beer,

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The über camp presentation of these Moa beers would certainly keep me away if not for the fact that they are indeed extraordinary brews. Fabulous aroma in this APA, hard to believe it’s done with American hops, with this cocktail of passion fruit and lychees. OK, I just read it’s got Nelson Sauvin, there you go. As other New Zealand APAs, this Moa Pale Ale is a lot more interesting than the average APA, which I confess is not one of my favourite styles. The flavour is a bit more one-dimensional, sharp bitter as an APA should be. Palate is a tad chalky. Good beer!

Kinda grassy kinda malty but overall a decent pale ale. Worth a try. I've had worse that's for sure.

very translucent without much head. tropical aroma but more subdued in flavour when hop bitterness and solid malt backbone provide support. not much to criticise but not much to evangelise either.
