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.

MaltOne (315) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Pours golden yellow, faintly hazy. Fluffy white head, recesdes to thin lasting lace cap. Aroma is assertive citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Beautifully balanced on the tongue. The citrus shows up before liquid touches the tongue, a cushioning layer of malt lays down coated with lemony citrus, with just enough bitter to keep it fresh. This is citrus zest as opposed to citrus pith - delicate not harsh. The malts create a substance and a light roasted biscuit base. It even manages to tickle the sweet receptors on the way by. Nicely done.

From bottle, the pour is clear and a pale yellow, with a creamy white head. The aroma is citrus and bright. The taste is hoppy but quickly followed by sweet and malty overtones. The finish is slightly sweet, and lightly roasted malts. The mouthfeel is medium.

Gespuccian (129) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2016
What a pale ale should be. Light piney hops on the nose. Good balance of caramelly biscuit and light floral, slightly resinous hops. Smooth mouthfeel, with a slightly crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1932) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Can from TODD! Thanks! A: Semi cloudy orange-gold with a big foamy white head. N: Big grapefruit, pine, and biscuit for starters. Light orange and a hint of lemon. Pineapple far below. Toast and a hint of passionfruit. T: Moderately sweet and bitter. M: Light body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol. O: This is quite a nice pale. It’s bursting with flavor, and I find it a nice compromise of west/east.
