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.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head and okay head retention. Light grass and vine y tones. Nobel hop tones. Light grain and bittering hops. Not a ton of flavor but very nice overall.

garthicus (2890) - 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 (6374) - 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 (3716) - 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 (1840) - 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!

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - NOV 29, 2010
12oz bottle. Citrus (orange, grapefruit, tangerine), pine and to a lesser extent, resiny hops in the nose along with a bit of honey. Light gold color with a one fingered white head and lots of visible carbonation. Brilliant clarity. Resiny, piney flavor with lingering grapefruit, light cracker and balanced bitterness. A very nice pale ale, approachable, but with a lot of hops aroma and flavor. Thanks Tim.

LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle to glass. Pours a somewhat hazy light copper with minimal, quickly diminishing head. Not a ton of lacing. Nose is grapefruit hops backed with sweet malt. Other citrus smells in there as well...perhaps lemon, etc. Bitterness builds a bit with each sip, not to incredible levels though. Lots of sweet malt, though the finish is fairly dry while staying creamy. Overall, a decent pale ale, though the lack of outstanding features places this one off of the memorable list.

TheBeerGod (5944) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle - courtesy of zizzybalubba! Golden amber with a short, fluffy white head. Aroma is light citrus based hops, soft spicy hops, floral hops and a pleasant earthiness. Taste is citrus oils, resinous hops, spicy hops, and sweet malt. Medium bodied with a moderately strong, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more citrus oils, pine resins, spicy and floral hops, light earthiness and sweet malt.
