COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DanielBrown (4425) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle at Beerd, Bristol. Very flavoursome - lovely floral herby hops, with classic pils yeast/malt or whatever. But genuinely (heyyyy) very good.

Nickls (2451) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Tap. Nice fluffy two finger of white head, on a murky dark hazy marigold. Berry hops and hay in the aroma. Bit biscuity, berry hops, dry finish. Lighter to medium body. Nice vibrant carbonation. Solid but could be much fresher of a sample. Need to try fresh...

jamesie1857 (1972) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - A slightly hazy golden beer with a huge lazing white head. The aroma has notes of yeast, lemon rind and a bit of malt. The flavour is sweet with notes of lemon zest, coriander, yeast, fruit, minerals, and malt, leading to a bitter finish where the lemony note lingers.

lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2013
average, nowhere near as good as their imperial pilsner. fairly bland and not much better than a typical lager, just has a bit more hop bitterness to improve things a bit.

DylansDad (617) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 30, 2013
Aroma was lemons and lime and grass and hay. Good start. Taste was same with the addition of wheat beer-like banana; marks off for that , but still it wasnt enough to ruin this otherwise delicious beer. Carbonation at the end a little too coarse for me.
