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.

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!

Slightly cloudy, golden color with a descent white head. Hoppy aroma with a him of caramel. Crisp, clean flavor that’s a bit grainy and hoppy.

deyholla (7013) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced just a bit. Aroma was a bit malty with cereal and bread notes, but there was a pleasant balancing light pine hop and just a hint of citrus. Flavor began with light pine with a slight hint of citrus but they both mellow and the finish showcases the bread and cereal notes more.

Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. On tap @ New Glarus with a nice lace with maintanence. Taste of malt with fairly moderate to strong hop backbone. Overall a nice brew but too hoppy for my taste.

Pours a beautiful golden color with a large white foamy head. Nose is all hops with a hint of spices. Creamy on the palate, this pale ale is all about the hops (5 different types) with just a touch of exotic spices. An excellent session beer that accompanies rye crackers with cucumber dill spread extremely well.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle-New Glarus rarely disapoints and this one for sure was a win! Clean golden hue with a small fizzy white head. you can tell from the apperance that this is not going to be a malty brew due to its light look. nose of tropical hops, lite sugary notes, lemon, pineapple and faint white grapes-man i love those Nelson Saluvin hops!!! Flavors show the white grape note more than in the nose alongside tangerine, lemon-very hoppy without being bitter at all. just over all great hop flavors. beautiful palate-lite and crips! I could session this beer for days! I would call this more a golden ale with alot of hops due to its lack of real malt base. short finish, which was the only thing that brought the beer down (well it didnt really)-lite white grapes with some lemon zest. A fantastic little beer from one of my favs!

Golden with medium white head, lasts quite awhile. Aroma is unreal. Floral/grass up front, orange and grapefruit zest, light pine resin, mango/apricot, light cereal/pils malt backbone. Tons going on, but never in your face. Flavor on par with aroma, citrus and pine play bigger roles, as does the pils malt in the finish. Medium to lively carbonation, soft billowy mouthfeel. Nothing overdone, perfect balance. Great session. Probably the best APA i’ve ever had.

Clear amber, with a loose white head. Very malty aroma for a pale ale. Some hop notes in the aroma. Medium body and malty.

GJF (1278) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Very nice pale. Pours a dark gold, creamy white head that lingers. Fresh hop, grassy aroma. Rich, creamy body, good malt backbone and a good dose of floral hop and pine flavors. Good summer ale.
