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.

@ Party Town / Florence kY --- Slightly hazy dirty amber, thick rocky head, bumpy stripes of lace. Taste is light malt augmented by solid European hops. Strong bittering, but by no means overwhelming. An appealing brew, taste is outside of the typical American pilsner, which is too bad for us.

On tap @ Moa, Blenheim. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has grass, is not too strong. Slightly hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is slightly sweet, has citrus, some grass, little maltiness. The beer has a lingering hopbitterness. Quite good.

Bottle. Cloudy straw colour with a billowing white head that sticks to the glass. Simplistic but delicious fruit salad aromas with just a subtle back note of yeast. Spicy front palate backed up with fruit salad flavours, bread like yeast and a gentle pine hop finish. Highly carbonated with a long, dry bitterness creating a great mouthfeel for a pils.

A light Pilsner that carry’s itself well. Very fruity on the nose and palate, with a light hop bitterness that creeps in over the duration of the beer. Malt bill is light with a lack of palate weight.

This beer tastes very much like, and has the appearance of a weissbier not a pilsner. Disappointed as I was led to believe by the label that it was a pilsner.

[email protected] Hazy yellow color, small white head. Leather, some banana, citrus in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Lemon, white pepper. Strange. Like a witbier.

The head is ok, the body blond. It smells bitter, bit malty. The taste is a bit bitter, bit malty, bit dry.

Bottle poured heavily into pint glass - sediment included. Hazy light gold, with a thick rocky white head. Citrusy, bready aromas. Mid-sweet, then a long, bitter grassy finish. Tasty.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Serving: Draft. It pours a pale yellow color with a small white head. The nose is light with a hint of grain. The flavor has some noble hop bitterness and a light grainy sweetness, but is otherwise unremarkable. Light body with average carbonation. Good for a hot day I suppose.

portableparty (2345) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale gold with a very large soapy sudsy head that slowly fades to a film and collar. Aroma is slightly skunky, but floral and signs of dry hops and lingering citrus. Taste has mild bitter dry hops that are floral with some citrus and malt and a crisp dry finish. Very enjoyable will seek out again.
