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.

Outra da Moa que não me convenceu muito. Amarelo dourado, levemente turva, boa formação e estabilidade de espuma. Aroma de malte, peras, uvas verdes. Aroma idem, com leve amargor que lembra lúpulos alsacianos. Amargor baixo, carbonatação boa, corpo médio-baixo. Aftertaste refrescante.

Bottle from bws, gold coast. Hazy light golden color, white head. Aroma is crispy pilsner, malty, hoppy and some yeast. Pure hoppy taste, high co2, malty body on the back. Excellent pilsner.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2015 750ml bottle into pint glass. Champagne bottle with cork! Spicy hop nose. Pepper? Cloudy amber with towering white head which isn’t going anywhere. This has mad hair! Creamy mouthfeel leading to nice fruity hop finish. Quality beer but every pour leads to an Everest of foam. Weird exuberance.

Light body and very clean taste from the beginning to the end yet its aroma is quite considerable. This beer will make it the perfect summer night with a right jazzy tune. Very enjoyable pilz and just like champagne for beer lover!

An enjoyable brew that combines a fruity aroma and flavour with a dry body and finish. One of the better beers from Moa.

Hazy yellow/orange beer with a white foam. Nice malty, soapy and grassy aroma. Crispy carbonation. Lots of flavor. Lemon, grape fruit, grass, soap, honey, yeast. This is a really good pilsner. A little bit different than European pilsners.

Tide (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from Alko. Hazy yellow color, full white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toast, hops, earthy notes, ripe fruits and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, earthy notes and grass. Very nice brew.

375 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the the head. Awesome appearance. Aromas of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bright citrus/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, light pine, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean flavors as well, with pretty much zero yeast ester presence. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice German pilsener style. All around good balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Hazy ochre/yellow beer , light sparkling, thin white and persistent creamy head. Nice hoppy citrus aroma, fresh, some spicyness. Soft, round feel, light body, drying finish is hoppy spicy. Nice one.

TET (2993) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
A dark yellow, hazy beer with a big, clouding and blond head. The nose has pure malts, aromatic hops, citrusfruits, some grass and kiwis. Taste has citrusfruits, grapefruits and lemon, also some tropical fruits, some light grain. The bitterness is not very strong, but it’s enough and aromatic. Fruits are dominating. Medium bodied, pleasant and smooth. Surprisingly good beer, enjoyable, smooth and fruitful.
