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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle from Adam. Thanks Tooch! Pours a golden amber with a fluffy white head. Nice fruity hop aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with steady carbonation. Very pale malt backbone that showcases a moderate pine and citrus bitterness. Sort of a fusion of british bitter meets American hops. Decent

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2010
(12oz bottle courtesy of nuplastikk). Pours slightly hazy golden color with chunky white head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of citrus, mostly grapefruit. Some pine/resin. Taste is sweet with a quick burst of hop bitterness. Hops subside and let a lucscious, citrusy flavor shine through. A bit thin and oily in texture with a faint bitter finish. This is a very drinkable pale ale. Really nice.

garthicus (2734) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 9, 2010
Thanks to HogTownHarry. Appearance: Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma: Distinctly hoppy with a little over ripe lemon and malt. Flavour: Quite fruity with a decent amount of hops, mildly spicy, very refreshing. Not bad.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2010
12oz bottle courtesy of JCapriotti shared with blankboy and garthicus. Slightly hazy gold, average diminishing white head. Solid floral/citrus aroma, light grain, slightly sweet - pretty much no alcohol. Slightly lemony, but solidly bitter - a bit leafy, hint of lemon zest, detectable alcohol ... nice balance, not sweet at all. Average body, decent carbonation, a reasonably long finish, bitter but not aggressively so. Pretty solid, would drink this a lot if it were a local - fantastic session beer

bjbergen (6) - DeForest, USA - DEC 9, 2010 does not count
This is my mother-in-law’s favorite beer. She doesn’t even drink craft beers that often. To go from Coors Light to Moon Man, it must be good.

BelgianBeerGal (3245) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2010
12oz freshly, traded bottle. Pours a clear golden-straw color with active carbonation and a medium, foamy head. Sticky looking lacing. Aroma is sweet hops and fresh pineapple. Light, refreshing hop flavor with a sweet malt backbone. Really cool session ale.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Light golden pour with an eggwhite head. Aroma is fruity hops-grapefruit. Nice malt and hops balance. Vert tasty. Nice hop aftertaste-not dominant-but pleasantly there!
