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.

Deep golden with some cascading columns of bubbles. Citrus (citra?) aroma. Medium-lean mouthfeel and bright carbonation make this quaffable. Slightly bready malt supports floral and dank flavor hop contributions. Latent hop bluntness adds to complexity. Always grateful to try New Glarus; thanks for another kweaver (I think, these notes are from awhile back...but I remember the beer.)

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Serving: Bottle. It pours solid gold with a small white head. Great nose full of herbal hops and tropical fruit. Light malt flavor to pair with the great hop notes and no overly aggressive bitterness. Wow. Well made.

Bottle pour. Thanks Frank. Pours a cloudy golden color with a lasting head throughout. A mild, faint malty aroma with a bit of pine. This beer was a tad off putting for me at first but it grew a ton as I went through it. Really dense pale ale with a creamy, hop filled finish. Will definitely try this one again. Overall, good beer here.

I’ve been drinking Spotted Cow for years but only recently have I tried other New Glarus varieties. Moon Man is amongst my new favorities. For an IPA it has just the right amount of bitterness. If you find your way to Wisconsin then give this a try, you won’t be disappointed

Jesterdeal (1923) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle shared by Eric. Aroma is zesty citrus and ripe flowers. Pours light blonde with nice fizz and a small fizzy head. Taste is lemon zest, fresh cut grass, and a light thanksgiving biscuit. Mouthfeel is zesty, zippy and clean. Nice pale ale.

BierMeHoos (119) - Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle gift from a neighbors visit back home in Wisconsin. The aroma consists of light orange, peach, lemon, and a touch of grapefruit. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus with just a hint of peach, the finish has light grapefruit with a touch of lemon/lemon peel. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, this pale ale is quite good.
