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.

Refrigerated bottle complements of cbfobes. Pours clear golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Medium carbonation, little lacing, and medium body, and smooth texture. Taste is long grapefruit with light bitterness in the finish. Reminds me of a better version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Tap at the New Glarus tasting room. Golden orange, small white head. Nose is grapefruity hops, slight orange and a bit of pine. Mouthfeel is a tad watery, but some solid citrus hops bolster it nicely. Not top of the charts, but solid.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Gold pour, plentiful carbonation and tall foamy white head. Mostly grapefruity hops on the nose. This is a full flavored APA. Plentiful grapefruit/piney hops balanced by some sweet malt and tropical fruit notes. Creamy texture. A fantastic APA.

12 ounce bottle that pours a light yellow, with a white head. Had a great aroma of hops, and biscuity notes. Had a grassy, and crisp finish.

Sample at a tasting at IlliniSmitty’s house. Aroma was of sweet tangerines, color was that of a light pale lager. flavor was also of a pale lager, but slightly sweet, more juice-sweet than corn sweet. Too light for my blood.

Narnad (1515) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Served at the tap room at the New Glarus brewery. Pours a very clean yellow, low carbonation, deep white head on top. Nose has a very, very fresh hops nose, similar to opening up a bag of hop pellets. The hops impart a smooth pine nose mostly with some mild flowery hints late. Flavor starts with a mild piney presence which moves into a light citrus, earthiness with a light toasty malt presence late but very light. Body is almost watery from the high hops presence. Overall a fantastically smelling beer, good flavor and just okay mouthfeel. Very light body kinda takes away a little bit from the beer but at 5% alcohol a very flavorful light brew.

12 oz bottle. Clear yellow orange with a white head. Nose is pink grapefruit and toffee; simple but so enticing. A long pull is perfectly quenching with a crisp bite and lively carb. Taste is soft grapefruit, woody pine, ginger and dough. I’d put this on my summer rotation if it were locally available.

large off white head, clear pale yellow/orange color. Nose is great, floral, vanilla. taste is very light with a slow easy bitter end. Could use more malts for balance. Not too impressed.

Bottle, courtesy of arminjewell. Pours an amazingly vibrant yellow-gold with a white, large-grained head. Nose is very herbal/resiny -- rosemary, mint, thyme, and sage all come into play. Lots of citrus on the tongue; grapefruit and more herbs, along with malt. Very rich and luxurious mouthfeel for a PA. I am beginning to wonder if New Glarus makes anything that isn’t terrific.
