Moa Methode Pilsner is a clean, crisp lager with a dry finish. A late throw of Pacifica and Motueka hops gives some upfront citrus aromatics, and the champagne yeast used in secondary fermentation imparts complex spicy characters.

Tasting Notes
Moa Methode is a German style pilsner with a high bitterness balanced with a relatively full mouth feel. Citrus hop characters dominate aroma with the presence of fresh bread yeast notes. It can either be poured carefully off the lees or alternatively with the lees mixed in if a strong yeast character is desired. Moa Methode is a complex pilsner best served in a pilsner glass at approximately 6˚C to maximise aromatic release.

rederic (3330) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2009
375ml green bottle, light skunky smell at the opening, slight cloudy yellow gold hue, with a big fluffy white head, yeasty, fruity citrusy, fresh cut hay nose with a pale, pilsner malt, light floral herbal saaz hop note, with some leafy, grassy, grapefruit accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, bready dough, crunched pale, pilsner malt, cereal character, with a mild lactic citrusy accent, and a hint of some cooked vegetables, and a light flowery hop saaz leafiness, leading towards a citrusy, faint lingering hop bitterness finish. Probably the travelling of this beer, tired out the hoppiness and bitterness.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Bottle (Moa Original). Poured a hazy pale with a tall white head that had thing lacing and settled out to a ring. Aromas where yeasty, lemon, and grain. The flavor found lemon and grain. Light body and fizzy carbonation.

Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
A hazy yellow gold beerwith a thick creamy lacing white head. In aroma, a nice spiced malt with wild herbs, light Brett notes, some white pepper, and coriancer. In mouth, wow, its Saison Dupont, with crips malt, herbal hops, coriander, some crispness to style with pils, meeting a very determined Belgian yeast. Im glad the SAQ brought those in. Bought at Olivers, Albany (as aprt of a mix pack), August 2009.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2009
Beautiful white collar traces its snow paths over the cloudy, yet shining golden hue. Bready and grainy nose showcases clean and crunchy pils malt. Heavy on the cereals for a pilsner, but I guess its traditional method gives it wings and enhances the palate further into a relatively thick, finely bubbled palate. One of its best features has got to be the flavour deployment, starting thick, but fresh with its pils malts, but intense on the hops. This is the kind of beer which would fit any meal. Bubbles are uniform and tight, avoiding excessive bite. Hops take a growing role in mouth, drying out the finish to the max. Lemon, herbs and spices make up the finish with soft notes of earth, mint and pepper. Phew, what a pleasurable offering!

Diogne (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle from SAQ. Clear yellow with a huge foamy head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma is fruity, slightly skunked, herbal and citrus and grains. Flavor is grassy with citrus and malt. Bitter finish. Fine champagne bubbles.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2009
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color pilsner with a super huge foamy pure white head with frothy retention and super great lacing- almost reminiscent of Orval. Aroma of semi sweet malt with floral and grassy notes and light dry hoppy finish. Taste is dominated by refreshing semi-sweet malt with light grassy notes and floral undertones and light hoppy Saaz finish. Body is quite full with super great carbonation. Very well done thought more Saaz hops would have benefited this beer.
