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.)

Cloudy yellow-orange, light white head. Grapefruit, citrusy-sweetness, little bit of honey. Bitter, some sweetness. Lighter body, medium carbonation, slight oiliness. Longer, dry bitter finish. Very nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The color is a clear aamber color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends resin and floral hops with a light and sweet malt backbone. The taste is quite bitter, mildly sweet, and slightly sour, but the flavor doesn’t linger on the tongue; the palate fuses a medium body, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish.

bottle- poured clear straw color with thin white head. Aroma is kinda funky, reminds me of a barnyard. Pretty decent looking brew with ok head. Taste is actually really good. Very nice syrupy malt and a lot of hop varieties going on. Overall a good but not great APA. Aroma is slight drawback!

12 oz bottle. Pours light gold with thick white head. Nice hops smell, and very smooth. Definitely a good drinker.

Naka (698) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Sadly, this is old and past its prime. Pours pale golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma is honey and piney hops. Flavor is smooth and balanced. I feel there was probably a more pronounced hop note at one point. Nice malt flavor. Still a nice bitterness in the finish. Good beer even though it’s old.

RRistow12 (175) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow with foamy white head. Lot of lazy. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Taste is a nice crisp bitterness with a small amount of malt sweetness to balance it. Flavors are mostly floral hops with some citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. Very good tasting. Overa a great pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks HisBoyElroy on the split. Very light hoppy aroma. Followed by a light taste of hops and a lot of lemon. Not bad. Very drinkable.

Pours a slightly hazing golden orange. Floral and citrusy in the nose. Taste a bit of lemony citrus with an intersting tropical fruit note. Nicely balanced and slightly dry. One of my favortites from New Glarus.

tectactoe (1169) - Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Pours an amber-tinted yellow color with a slight chill haze throughout, topped off with a small layer of foamy, white bubbles. Aroma of light pine, leafy hops, faint perfume, candied grapefruit, & a hint of white pepper-y spiciness on the back-end. Only a very mild hint of toasted cracker malt sugar. Taste is full of crisp, floral hops with a mid-palate grassy bite. Lightly toasted biscuit & cracker malts provide a good base. Finish of mild perfume & zesty grapefruit peels. Sharp finish, coats the mouth ever so slightly. Very drinkable pale ale.
