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.

Eructoblaster (4098) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle - 375ml. Cloudy blond body topped with a thick white frothy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with coriander and spicy hints. Nice, sharp hoppy taste with malty and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. I am not sure this is a Lager. Well done!

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2008
Almost clear, golden body with a lasting short white head. I like the bitterness in this one, certainly can taste the yeast, grassiness and citrus. Yes this does taste like a premium lager.

ABUSEDGOAT (2692) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Hazy golden, very large head that lasts. Aroma is grass, bread, lightly fruity with a little bit of yeast. Medium to light body, fairly high carbonation. I really wanted to like this more.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2008
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy, golden with a rough, off-white head. Aroma of malt, flowery hops and a little yeast. Medium body with a very soid malt base, a heavy carbonation with huge bubbles and a little yeast. Very flowery hopping that also leaves a distinct bitterness. Huge yeast sediment. Exciting. 050208

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle (750ml). Poured a hazy orange color with a tinge of brown and a large frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of honey with hints of grapes and some grassy hops. Flavor was of tropical fruits such as passion fruit with a decent bitterness, some honey and a spicy/peppery finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, dry texture, creamy mouthfeel and a good finish.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Bottle (750ml champagne-style), poured a cloudy pale gold with a white foamy head. A pleasant aroma, with both fruity and flowery characteristics, as well as an evident yeast presense - citrus fruit being the most dominant. Effervescent on the palate, though reasonably smooth with that citrus again coming through well. The finish releases a more earthy malt palate. A soft mouthfeel, with some qualities that are reminiscent of a Belgium blond ale.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2008

Hazy golden colored. Citric aroma. Decent.

austinpowers (2828) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2007

bozoNZ (777) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 30, 2007
375ml bottle - peppery straw golden colour, huge rocky pure white head formed. Light spicy peppery hop aromas waft past. Very well carbonated and that is the first hit dry all through, grapefruit like pith finish. Some pepper and a touch of lighter citrus in the mix. Premium price and this one has delivered although earlier samples Ive had have been far from worth the money.
