Moa Five Hop is a New Zealand take on a traditional English ale. A range of Nelson Hops including Cascade, Pacifica, Motueka, Hallertau and Sauvin give Moa Five Hop a savoury, hoppy nose and creamy, honeyed characters on the palate. A well-balanced companion to any meal.

Tasting Notes
Moa Five Hop Winter Ale utilises pilsner, Vienna, Munich and crystal malts to produce a distinctive mouth feel and flavour. New Zealand grown B Saaz and Hallertau aroma hops are used to produce an ale with an extremely high bitterness. An English ale yeast completes this Brewers Beer. Moa Five Hop is a strong ale fermented at warm temperatures to maximise aromatic and floral aromas. The English ale yeast provides a low apparent attenuation and sweeter finish. Bottle conditioned, Moa Five Hop will age well. Moa Five Hop is best served at approximately 9-11˚C in a tulip glass.

Dervock (1267) - - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle - pours hazy dark copper with a big off white head. Orange citrus, honey and some floral notes ( was a bit colder than should have been). Looks of citrus and bitterness with a lighter lingering finish. Mouthfeel was a bit thin on the finish.

Bottle. Fortunately, it doesnt taste as English IPA. Tin of caramel in background, otherwise pine and zest in aroma. Very good.

Skarecrow (637) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 9, 2016
500ml bottle. Sweet aroma with minor hoppy and malty notes. Poured light hazy amber with creamy head. Medium bitterness gives way to hoppy/grassy finish with a touch of wet cardboard. Adequate.

BVery (10212) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Tap at MOA Singapore. Golden pour, white head. More citrus and yeast, less malt - makes this pretty good.

Idiosynkrasie (7318) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016
500ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Dusty, grassy, unspecific fruity, hoppy aroma, cautious hints of dried apricot, kumquat, mandarine, mouldy blue grapes, mellow caramel malty background. Taste is grassy and citrusy fruity hoppy, caramel malty basis with a touch of toffee, hints of kumquat, mandarine, minimally chalky bitterness. Unbalanced, no harmony between malty basis and hoppy fruitiness. Not every classical style is automatically improved by bounteous hopping.

Poured from tap a dark Amber with medium head. You can feel the spice through and through. Hits you from the start and followed through in the taste. Bitter finish.
