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.

From a bottle. Aroma is grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit and a little bit of bright bitterness. Not much depth. Quite acidic. Not really my cup of tea.

Poured into a pint glass. Nice hazy yellow gold color with a pure white head. Smells of hops with a ever so slight skunkiness. Malt is present just enough to balance the hop punch at the end. A very clean and refreshing pale from one solid brewery. Cheers to NG!

Poured from 12oz bottle into regular pint glass. Transparent yellow/ orange with light white head. Nose is citrusy. Taste is crisp citrus and light hops. Straightforward and unassuming, kind of light, and fresh. Super tasty. Perfect session beer for someone who likes a little bit of flavor.

Bottle thanks to Frankcis. Nose is a citrus and tropical explosion (ok, maybe a small explosion). Pour is a slightly hazy light gold with a small sized white head. Nose reveals some orange and tangerine notes as it warms. Taste is a light white bread malt with a moderate hop flavor that is mostly orange and similar. Very enjoyable and straight forward. I could drink this all summer. moderate carbonation and a drying finish without any astringency or harshness. good stuff

Bottle--pours a gold/yellow color with a small foamy head. Aroma of hops, pine and soft citrus. Good, but not large, hop bitterness leads the drink, with some citrus and follows up with caramel malt, not noted in the aroma. Light mouth feel with little bitterness.

GIJOE (574) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours amber with a thick, frothy, white head that lingers long. Blotchy lacing. Nose is fruity, grapefruit notes. Taste is slightly bitter and quite pleasant. Nice honey undertones. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Long, albeit faint, hop finish. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HughConway (769) - Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours light golden orange, stiff white head. Grass citrus aroma. Taste is citrus grain malt, bit of tingle from the carbonation on the back. It’s a really nice pale ale. You can tell they aren’t west coast marketing assholes because then it’d be a "session ale" and they’d charge more money.

This is a really nice American pale on the lighter side of things, very drinkable and refreshing. It pours a nice orange color w/ a fairly long-lasting head of fine white bubbles. This is very much centered on a juicy citric hop character. It is not too bitter but has a great, fresh hop nose to it. There is a bit of apparent sweetness here which is cut quite a bit by vigorous carbonation. Some more piny hop notes come out in an otherwise clean finish. This is definitely a beer you can drink all day. I personally would like for a bit more bracing bitterness in the finish but regardless of that there is a lot to like here.

One of my favorite pale ales when in Wisconsin. Citrus, grass ad some grain from the malt. Make sure the bottle hasn't been sitting around for too long or you will be disappointed.

One of my favorites. Slightly citrus notes with some floral in there as well. Only available in WI, but it is definitely something you need to pick up if you’re in the state. A true treat.
