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.

I’m gonna throw three words out there....Average to suck! ridiculously priced beer that really doesn’t live up to expectations

KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle in Hanmer Springs. Beer advertised as "Moa - Original" I think its this one. Description said Pilsner styled but if so its very untraditional. Cloudy pale/golden beer. Mild aroma, pleasant enough. Malty tasting beer for its colour with yeasty, citrus and perhaps banana flavours coming through in after taste. Is this a lager? Different tasting beer, not too bad. Expensive however.

Lunkie (1936) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2008
Sweet malt hop aroma with flowers. Cloudy yellow colour with good head and lacing. Sweet malt flavour with flowers. Smooth palate.

Eructoblaster (4205) - 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 (2760) - 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

Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2008
Light golden and hazy body with extra large head with large boubles. Nose with hops, fruit and citrus. Fresh bitter taste with hops in the aftertaste.

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.
