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.

I haven’t made it to WI in recent years, so I just had to get some New Glarus when in Milwaukee for the weekend last month. I really wanted a good, solid Pale Ale and thought that I couldn’t go wrong with New Glarus, but I was let down. A session pale ale now? While this beer had some decent hop flavors, it was watery and thin and completely unsatisfying. There was not much maltiness at all and each bottle slipped down easily in only 3 or 4 swallows. This beer drank more like a hoppy lager and is probably fine, but just wasn’t what I wanted this time around...

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Golden color with a moderate off-white head and nice lace. Pale malt with minty to herbal hops in the gradually taking over. Light and airy on the tongue. Little bit of malt and light fruit sweetness quickly escorted away by mild citric hops and white pepper. Slightly quenching. Not quite a pale, with a few saison qualities. 3/10

BeerBunker (940) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is of hops, grass, and pine. Taste is hops, pine, grass, and soap. Lingering grassy hop taste. Mouthfeel is soapy and very carbonated. Not bad at all.

Bottle at the grandparents. Pours clear light golden, subtle bright white head that persists. Nose is great. Graham cracker, pine and apricot notes, simply bright and airy, potent for a pale ale. Slightly lighter bodied but loaded with citrus juicy hop notes and just enough caramel and cracker malt backing to make this a great pale ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slight pine smell. Mild hop taste. Just a slightly hoppy ale really. Less intense than an IPA.

Jow (2748) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2015
This was on tap at my cousins wedding and with free beer and wine I had like 6 pints. Orange yellow beer. Nose is grapefruit and biscuits. Tastes of biscuits, crackers, grapefruit, resin, and floral hops. Standard palate. Nice straight up pale ale. Contributed to great evening of fun.

bottle shared poured a light to medium orange. nose is medium malt base and mild to medium hop....for me this is middle of the road exactly to style. and some people may not care for it because its not extreme. but it covers the basics of an apa and in all respects. easy to drink and not to bitter nicely hopped. good job new glarus
