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. Donít 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.

Golden beer with a foamy off white head. Very sharp pine and grapefruit zest hop nose. The body strikes me as thinner than the nose would suggest. Lots of hops in here, with pine, grapefruit juice and some candied orange rind. This is definitely a hop focused beer, and for the hop head, this is quite enjoyable.

Clear golden body with an average white head. Wow, I really love the fruity citrus flavor and the hops clearly stand out here. I canít for the life of me remember the last Pale Ale that has wowed me. This is another gem in the New Glarus lineup. Very impressive session like ale that I could drink over and over.

12 oz. bottle. Appearance- Bright orange. Minimal head. Aroma- Citrus grapefruit apricot. Taste- A little malty sweetness up front that dries out quickly. Apricot is strong. Grapefruit. Palate- Medium light body with a dry bitter finish. A little pucker at the end. Overall- A nice pale ale that stands out.

12 oz bottle from the jimack invitational í10. Poured a clear thinner looking burnt orange/amber with a smaller ot average sized bright white frothy head. Aroma is loads of citrus hops, apricott, grains, and a touch of something off that I canít place my finger on perhaps wet pine needles. The body is on the lighter side with average carbonation, a watery mouthfeel and not much of an aftertaste. Flavors are weak compared to the aroma with notes of grains, crusty breads, a touch of lemon, and stale old hops. Really good APA bordering on the edge of an IPA.

Spicy for a pale ale (in a good way!). Flavor packed a hoppy punch. Would definitely buy again.

Hair6a11 (1426) - Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle: Pours a light golden, very modest white head, decent lacing. Once again, another unfiltered brew from New Glarus, its hard to notice but the floaties are present here. So, the no coast ale - it feels fairly muted. Light floral hop aroma, light bitterness on the taste, with a light sweetness with the malt backbone. Flavors are simple floral hop,malt, light citrus, huge drinkability but Iím not sure if I would.

8/13/10. 12oz bottle thanks to cbfobes! Big hoppy aroma that displays citrus, orange, and a bit of cat pee. The flavor is nice and light with plenty of hop flavor as well, but with a hint of tinny metal as well.

pinkzambia (1682) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle: Ultra clear gold color with a small white bubbly from the active carbonation rising like champagne bubbles. Citrusy hop aroma followed by mild juniper shrubs. Crisp flavor of peppery hops with an orangy finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Not too bad. Thanks Indiana_Red!

Bottle pours a clear light orange yellow with a small white head and persistent wispy lacing. Up front soapy hop aroma and very pale malts. Flavor is mostly a hop vehicle but the light malts are a tad sweet and they balance well. Moderate carbonation and a little grassy on the finish.
