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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

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.
