COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Motueka is the region in New Zealand where this hop hails from. This double lager has a light dry body with some hints of tropical fruit before you get to the lip-smacking end.

Growler shared by Thoroe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is clear and orange hued with a half inch of lasting white head. The aroma brings some lager scents. Malty with a light dose of fruit. A bit sweet with some alcohol presence in the finish. Some dank hops are in there as well. Overall, this was ok. Worth a try. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 03-18-2012

Tap at town hall. Awesome fruity hop aroma. Slight hazy which is rare for a lager and fruity and hoppy flavor, also rare for a lager. White head with nice lace. Really awesome, unique flavor. If that flavor is the motueka hop I’m sold. Phenomenal beer; toward the top of my favorite town hall beers as well as perhaps all beers. Up there with Bells experimental 2012-2

Brilliant, clear gold. Aroma of biscuit, dough, and some citrus. Flavor is briefly sweet biscuity malt that quickly gives way to a sharp, woody pine bitterness that finishes herbal/earthy with some light trailing citrus. Quite impressive and an unexpected flavor profile. Still get the clean lager qualities.

Huge thanks to dougofthefuture for sending this growler out my way. Served in a Town Hall cervoise, also courtesy of dougofthefuture. Pours a nice golden color with a good white head with nice retention. A bit of sticky lacing on the way down. The nose carries some really nice fruits, with some gooseberry, kiwi, green grape, and a hint of melon. Love those New Zealand hops. The flavor has all of the light-green fruits, but not with the same intensity and complexity. Still, quite good. A moderate amount of hop bitterness added in. Light-medium body with good carbonation and a fairly-dry finish. Quite good. Another winner from Town Hall.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Town Hall Tap. Clear golden pour with a nice white head. Aroma and taste are tropical fruit, a bit of biscuit, and a nice hop bite. Really good.

From notes, on tap at brewery pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of hop spice, tropical fruits, honey, with slight musk. Taste is spicy and bright, slight malt presence, finishing slight bitter and dry. Tasty with a refreshing zest. Alcohol only noticeable as it adds to the overall spice character. Interesting.
