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. Donít 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.

In fairness, it might have been old. MI is not their usual distribution. Bland pale ale. Many MI APAs are better.

VeinAle (63) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Poured two bottles gently into 24oz mug. Nice sweet smell to this one. Hazy gold pour, translucent with steady carbonation though very minimal head. Taste is hops and grapefruit, mild bitter finish. Good APA with a smooth and sudsy mouth feel. I could imagine this one being a staple of theirs.

ARH (660) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 12 oz bottle accidentally aged 4 months, poured into a pint glass. The aromas are a pleasant and bright combination of floral, lemon, bread crust, coriander, and pine with a mellow touch of caramel. Itís a slightly hazy, effervescent pale yellow-orange with a rocky, sudsy, and frothy white head that retains quite a bit of creamy head and leaves abundant tight-webbed lace. Itís taste is a medium bitter (flirting with medium high) and a medium sweetness as a secondary note. Itís oily with a fuzzy carbonation. The medium body is full of bittersweet citrus notes starting juicy sweet and caramel notes, and finishing crisp, citrus bitter and pine-like. Itís clean and slightly astringent with slightly dry, bitter citrus aftertaste.

sitzds (318) - - NOV 16, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into shaker pint. Golden body with a tall white head that leaves streaky lacing and hangs on stubbornly. Aroma is cracker malt, some grain, grapefruit zest, citrus juice, and grass. Taste is hop-forward bitterness featuring citrus zest, herbal bite, and grassy. A brief visit of grain on the swallow. Medium-light body, creamy texture, just less than average carbonation, dry hoppy finish.
