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. 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 golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is mostly dried apricots with some bready notes. The flavor is well balanced with a nice hop profile. Some tropical fruit, apricots, grapefruit and a hint of bready malts. It finishes dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Bottle in Minneapolis. Light pale, golden yellow appearance with a fairly small white head. Slightly grapefruity, slightly citrusy hoppy nose thatís done well but not overly hoppy for an APA. Light citrusy, grapefruity hoppy carbonated Pale Ale. Good pale malty flavor. Very easy drinking while still having lots of hop character. Great APA.

Strykzone (5502) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Sampled at The Stableís Beer Loverís Anonymous. Bottom of the bottle was cloudy but tom of it was clear. I got the bottom in my pour. A soapy white head. A soft earthy start with very soft hops and just as soft citrus fruit. There are bitter tart citrus with some spice. This beer is sweet and just doesnít have a lot going on. The finish was nice, though.

Pours a nice light color, with a refreshing scent to the nose. Goes down nice and smooth with a pleasant after taste.

Pours a crisp clear orange with about a finger of a white, frothy head, slowly dissipating. Lots of great floral hops in the nose. A lighter hop taste than I would expect, but surprisingly deep and balanced. Some light citrus starts out, as it builds into a nice sweetness that fades into hop bitterness. I like this a lot better then the last 2 I tried from New Glarus. This and Fat Squirel so far are the 2 I liked best out of the 5 I have tried.

crossovert (9089) - 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 ainít 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 (594) - 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 (6355) - 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. Thereís 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 doesnít exactly stick with you, though. Overall: A crisp and tasty "easy drinker". This is the kind of beer Iíd want on a hot summer day.
