Moa Methode - New Zealand - 18/12/2013

The low down:
BEER FOR OLYMPIANS? What are they competing in!? Darts is Olympic right, and snooker? This is a spicy fruity Pilsener, though it is lacking the hop intensity of its European brethren, I don't think it suffers for it.

For those that don’t know, the Moa was a gigantic 3 meter tall man-eating mega-fauna that inhabited New Zealand right up until the 14th century AD.

Before the New Zealand Tourism board gets too upset, I should probably retract the man-eating and replace it with man eaten. As with most flightless birds, we ate them to extinction. Go us.

Now the next trick is to drink Moa to extinction.

Packaging: 7/10
Sleek , clean, and well designed.
Refreshment: 9/10
Southern hemisphere summer refreshing. It's super effective.
Flavour 8/10:
Super tasty, little bit fruity, little bit spicy, it’s probably cinnamon and apricots.
Alcohol Content: 5/10
5%. Pilsner to the end.
Price: 5/10
$6.30 Reasonable, but given that they are pushing this stuff like 42 below vodka, it could stand to drop a buck or so.
Total: 34/50

Match it with dodo, moa, Galapagos turtle or white rhino. Spot the theme.
