Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.
A- Light, foamy pale white head forms three fingers thick. Hazy pale golden body with occasional spurts of carbonation.
S- Melon and citrus are big and bold. Hop resin hits the nose with a second whiff. It's a heavily fruity profile with hints of sweetness.
T- The citrus take its time to arrive and hit the palate, but then it builds into a strong orange peel flavor. Melon flavors waft in and out as well. The finish is resinous and offers a dose of pine.
M- It's impressive how refreshing and light drinking this is. The slight downside is that it initially feels a bit watered down until the hops hit with some flavor and an aggressive bitterness. It's still got enough sweetness to suggest there's some malt in there and this plays well of the melon flavors. It's an interesting blend of flavors and feels.
This could easily be my summer go-to. It's not filling, it's refreshing and it is full of interesting and tasty flavors. It's a gem.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into an extremely cold larger glass. It was consumed early evening last Sunday as the burgers cooked on the grill. This review is written three days later based on memory not notes.
Moon Man poured cloudy golden, I guess it is unfiltered, with a solid head that lasted for the entire drink. Although cloudy it almost seemed to sparkle in the early evening sunlight. It was calling - drink me, drink me ... so I did.
Wow, I have been looking for a Pale Ale this good since starting on my beer journey in the US 18 months ago.
The smell of aromatic citrus and bright flora burst from the glass.
This was followed by a full on assault of the taste buds. A pronounced citrus flavour of grapefruit, together with piney aromatics of the hops delivered a most refreshing and bright taste. As I was not drinking out of Riedel I could not split out a mid and back pallet taste.
The mouth feel was crisp and satisfying, exactly what I was looking for on a hot Sunday session.
My host explained that New Glarus beers are not available outside of Wisconsin and this is a real shame. I could easily drink Moon Man for the rest of summer ... if it was available in Kansas.
