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. [thanks, Lau]
Pours light hazy yellow golden with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma has lovely peach, citric, pine, resin and grapefruit. A great hops aroma. Lowish aroma, a bit thin and watery. Flavour is a bit resiny sweet, light grapefruit and peach bitterness and mild malty backbone. So sad that the flavour is so limited compared to the very lovely aroma. Still a beer I would drink if offered :o)

Koelschtrinker (10516) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 12, 2011
Süß-hopfiger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil eher herb, die Hopfigkeit flacht bereits ab. Süffig, wenig hefig. Zum Ende hin etwas grasig, hier kommen milde Malznoten zum tragen. Erfrischend, weiter herber werdend. Trockener Nachgeschmack. Nett gehopftes Pale Ale. 12/10/11/10/11/10
