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.

rating from memory. multiple samples via bottle as well as full pours off the tap at the hilltop brewery.... pours a sem-hazy golden yellow brown with a fluffy white head.... aroma of grass, citrus, and bready malt... flavors are a continuation of the same. extremely quaffable although not too complicated. just a well done american pale with a nice hop profile backed up by some bready malt.

12 oz bottle from the brewery (New Glarus, WI) enjoyed while catching up on some GTMW ratings and a blogpost. Pours a glowing golden straw, a bit dulled, but decent haze, lively carbonation. A large offwhite head dies to a decent layer, laces well. Aromas are a nice melange of gumball, lemon rind, grapefruit, grass, with pale and bready malts beneath, crisp cereal grains. Amarillo hops, sweeter gumball with orange and lemon, crisp grains. Fresh though. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a nice bite of bitterness, pine and florals, moves into flavorful citrus and grass, lemon rind and orange, gumball, pale and bready malts, crackers, cereal grains, cheerios. Soapiness, a touch of metal. The bitterness gives a bit, but recedes into flavorful citrus, grass, and gumball. Amarillo, touch of soap, dry and sweet mesh finish. A nice APA, flavorful, moving into a bit of sweetness, but stilll well balanced and flavorful hops provide some depth with grapefruit making it’s appearance down the line. Nice. Bitterness is quite striking for a smaller beer. Cheers to Dan & Co.

Bottle… Clear yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is quite nice – biscuit accompanied by a musky blend of hops. Medium-bodied and watery with middle-of-the-road carbonation. Well-balanced flavor. Thin and grassy. Short, crisp, neat finish. Bottle courtesy of otakuden!

Pours a clear orange with about a finger of stark white, slowly dissipating head. Lots of great floral hops in the nose. A lighter hop taste than I would expect, but surprisingly deep. Some light citrus starts out, as it builds into a nice sweetness that fades into hop bitterness. I like this a lot.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Golden pour. If you drink it with food it will taste different than by itself, which, in my opinion that’s the best way to have it. On its own there’s a mild hoppiness with a fresh grassiness. Very, very drinkable.

Super APA. Heavy citrus, some pine in nose, not a lot of malt qualities in nose. But plenty in the palate, dough, biscuits, + citrus + pine, really nice balance, tasty. Dry finish.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Poured from bottle, pours a clear golden color with white fluffy head, actually has more hop aroma to it than I was expecting, has a nice fruity and hoppy flavor to it, very crisp and clean, very nice offering from New Glarus.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear light gold color. The head was thick, fluffy, and white with good retention and lacing. I smelled citrusy hop, pale malt, and a hint of pine. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet up front. Minimal bitterness emerged at the end. Citrus and pine hop flavors served on a bed of pale malt. There was also a hint of pineapple.

A-pours a transparent pale golden color with a creamy white head that leaves a solid lacing. S-big hops in the nose, crystal and pale malts lay a subtle foundation, hint of caramel, resignous piney hops take over, a fair amount of citrus as well. T-the taste follows the nose, crystal and pale malts, a fair bit of citrus and pine, a little soapy in the back with a light bitterness in the finish. slightly watery but still pretty full flavors. M-smooth, medium to full body, creamy, a little syrupy on the palate, moderate to light carbonation, not quite enough to balance. D-this is a very tasty pale ale, it has a good hop presence with enough malt to balance, very good feel, just lacking a little bit of carbonation. nice balance with the bitterness, light but still present. very good!
