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.

DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep gold with a fluffy bubbly head and slight bit of cloudiness. It smells hoppy and sweet with a little bit of a funk I canít detect. Lightly carbonated. Itís light, crisp and refreshing with very mild citrus and floral undertones. Smooth with no aftertaste. Very good! A great beer to drink on a hot Texas day by the pool!

New Glarus Moon Man has a thin-to-medium white head, a small amount of lacing, and a fairly hazy, slightly bubbly, golden appearance. The aroma is of somewhat piney and somewhat citrusy hop resin with background white bread. Taste is of the same elements, with noticeable bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and New Glarus Moon Man finishes crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking. RJT

Bottle to pint glass. Clear, pale, gold. One finger white head. Citrusy nose. Med body, crisp, clean, a decent standard pale, nothing to get too excited about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle decanted. Aromas of clean pine, grapefruit, lemon. Clean slight bitter flavor, medium hoppiness, light bodied, malty finish. Pours a hazy golden yellow. This beer is mosaic hop dominant.

Bulk_Carrier (2572) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden orange color. A one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell was awesome. Pure light spicy infused sweet citrus blend to bitter pine tones, full and graceful under my nose. The taste was superb as it had the spice combine awesome with the sweet subtly to lead to a semi-wet citrus/dry piney aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still good for its style and for me. This one was definitely sessionable and would be exceptional with its respected food. Overall, I say this was an exceptional APA that Iím so glad to have tried.

maltman53 (429) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle pours gold with a thick, persistent head. Baked lemon bread on the nose, soft hops on the palate and marshmallow mouthfeel. Overall, a soft, lemony, flavorful non-bitter PA.

12oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours hazy golden-orange in color. Impressive white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, biscuit, floral hops. Taste is mildly sweet upfront with a subtle butter finish. Very clean. Medium body, medium texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.

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

VeinAle (120) - 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.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, grapefruit, resin and grass. Taste is malts, caramel and citrus.
