COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Don’t 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.

crossovert (8853) - Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy gold with a big foamy white head. It has a really fresh hop character in the scent. It is lightly grassy with a bit of tropical fruit and pine. Pale malts are underneath. It is light tasting, too light, very grainy as per the style, the hops are a bit more interesting here than most but overall just very bland typical APA. It ain’t no Pride and Joy. Overall it is a bit of an oddity but for the most part it is typical low-flavor APA. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-20-2010 21:59:22

ekoerper (592) - Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Aroma: mostly citrus hops, some toasty malt notes. Appearance: pours a clear, light golden color. Abundant white billowing head with good retention; some spotty lacing. Flavor: citrus and pine flavors from the hops, some resin/stickiness, toast/biscuit malts. The finish is a bit grassy, but this is minimal and dominated by nice malt and hop flavors. Well executed hop additions; ample hop flavor and aroma without overpowering bitterness, some bitter aftertaste but not at all unpleasant. Palate: medium body with medium-high carbonation. Nice session beer, very well balanced.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours a nice amber with a small head. Notes of spice from the hops on the nose dive into a mildy hoppy but yet finely malted beer. The finish drives more hops of this medium bodies brew.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Bottle courtesy of ughsmash. Pours gold with a lasting white head. Smells of perfum, wildflowers, earthy. Tastes of crisp malt, sage, peppery, light pine notes. Enjoyable.

AbsoluterZero (11) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Source: 12 oz bottle from local retailer. Aroma: Moderately powered smell to this beer. The hops smell is prominent, but I also smell a light bit of citrus. Appearance: Very clear pour, color is of light amber. Light white and bubbly head tops the pour. Taste: Hops come through first and foremost but are by no means overpowering. There’s a mildly sweet fruitiness that comes through as well. The two flavors sort of balance each other out and prevent bitterness or sweetness from taking over. Palate: Medium to medium-thin body on this one. Taste doesn’t exactly stick with you, though. Overall: A crisp and tasty "easy drinker". This is the kind of beer I’d want on a hot summer day.

DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep gold with a fluffy bubbly head and slight bit of cloudiness. It smells hoppy and sweet with a little bit of a funk I can’t detect. Lightly carbonated. It’s light, crisp and refreshing with very mild citrus and floral undertones. Smooth with no aftertaste. Very good! A great beer to drink on a hot Texas day by the pool!

Thanks to my parents for bringing his back from a recent trip to Wisconsin. Pours a pale golden with slight haze. Good head retention and some really nice lacing. Nose brings a bit of citrus hops with a light bit of grain in the background. Taste is citrus with a bit of bitterness. Some slight grain in the back, but no real malt character. Feel is a bit light and undercarbonated. Tasty, but I preferred Hop Hearty and there are certainly better APAs out there. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-10-2010

Courtesy of Oddefellowe. Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma begins with some resiny pine hops and becoming citrus with tangelo, grapefruit and pineapple. The taste is crisp and fresh with a pulse of grainy malts and then quickly moving into citrus hop flavor and bitterness and also getting resiny here and there. It ends with a return of the grainy malt goodness that adds a pleasing character and depth to the beer. Great Pale!

Pours a light yellowish orange color. Aroma is a little earthy, grassy, and a touch of orange and lemon citrus. Earthy flavor comes through pretty well. A bit of that rubbing alcohol sort of hop profile but not too dominant. I am really sensitive to that hop whatever it is. The rest of the drink is relatively easy and smooth with a little bit of light citrus on the finish. Pretty unassuming but a nice well rounded pale.
