Moon Man is a seriously cool cat. Always comfortable in his own skin, he never tries too hard. So cool we named our "no coast" pale ale after him. You hold a session beer with a bright bold blend of five hops that flirt obligingly with the smooth malty backside. Donít let this one lay around it is brewed to be enjoyed today. Bold and engaging without pretense, because in Wisconsin you do not have to be extreme to be real. Just be.

Pours a slightly hazing golden orange. Floral and citrusy in the nose. Taste a bit of lemony citrus with an intersting tropical fruit note. Nicely balanced and slightly dry. One of my favortites from New Glarus.

Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Pours an amber-tinted yellow color with a slight chill haze throughout, topped off with a small layer of foamy, white bubbles. Aroma of light pine, leafy hops, faint perfume, candied grapefruit, & a hint of white pepper-y spiciness on the back-end. Only a very mild hint of toasted cracker malt sugar. Taste is full of crisp, floral hops with a mid-palate grassy bite. Lightly toasted biscuit & cracker malts provide a good base. Finish of mild perfume & zesty grapefruit peels. Sharp finish, coats the mouth ever so slightly. Very drinkable pale ale.

Bottle from bytemesis pours a clear golden color with two fingers. Fragrant aroma, floral with spruce. Flavor is similar but very light, not much malt to speak of, like the memory of an IPA. I am torn on this one. It has great flavors but the lightness makes it underwhelming.

Bottle pour light gold. Nose mango and pine but mostly fruit hop. Sweet bitter up front. Some aromatic hop early. Mid palate bitter the malt. Light bitter finish.

One of my New favorite beers. This beer is packed with flavor... You can taste the hoppiness, but with very little bitterness. Very similar to Boulevards 80 Acre. I drank it from the bottle... so not much to comment on the appearance.

Beautiful aroma that smells strongly of citrus. Pours golden and has a nice hint of orange that cuts through the hops.

Had it out of a bottle from Woodmans grocery store in Kenosha Wisconsin. Poured a golden clear hue with a thin white head that lasted and a mild malt/hop taste. The taste is a very smooth and bland hop taste. Eh.

April 20th, 2012 - New Glarus is a far away place from everywhere Iíve lived, but Iím no stranger to the alluring intoxicants coming out of the self same brewery. Oddly, though, Iíve only tried their popular and rather limited beers, like the Belgian Red. Perhaps these have unfairly twisted my thinking about New Glarus. It is possible, I think, that everything they make is up to the very high standard of their fruit beers. But to be honest, Iíve never tried any of their more common brews, or those that come in six-packs. Whereas Iíve had their fruit beers at tastings, my friends from the Midwest have never heard of them. But talk about Moon Man? Youíd think that was a food group to be enjoyed at most meals. But after a bottleís worth of tasting, I can see why. It emanates a lovely, biscuity aroma, touched with a tinge of grapefruit bitterness, and made slightly sticky with some piney hops. The flavor is light, even delicate, with a soft astringency, more grapefruit and a touch of dryness invoked by flavors of wheat. Itís mild mannered and well mannered, and a nice demonstration of how to make a hoppy beer that doesnít cut the drinkerís face with vorpal hops.
