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.

Pale orange in color with white head. Floral and citrus aroma. Medium bitterness with some light sweetness. Malt has a bready aroma. Finishes bitter with a light body. An interesting and solid simple pale ale.

12 oz bottle pours light, clear gold with a little head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is mildly bitter, thin body with almost no bitter after taste. Very smooth but seems a little watered down. Great easy drinking pale ale but I am used to a bit more hop presence in a the style.

Draft. Golden/light copper with thin white head. Aroma of citrus and light pine hops. Light body, citrus hops, a light hop bitterness and some malt. Nicely balanced and restrained hop bitterness.

Look: pours a clear golden straw. White head that fades quickly. Smell: citrus fruit. Lemon, pineapples. Slight dank smell. Fruity gum. Grapefruit. Sparkling white grape juice. Taste: heavy citrus. Grapefruit. Extreme bitterness. Slight pine flavor as it warms up. Maybe some grassy notes as well. White grapes. Feel: heavy carbonation. Very dry. Leaves a film on the mouth. Overall: delicious beer. Perfect for summer. First drank: 7/11/14 home

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

jhliesen (704) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
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 (587) - 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
