12oz. bottle into stange on 9/19/11. Thanks to brewslut for bringing one of these back for me from a recent trip to WI.

A - Hard pour yielded a slightly hazy lime-tinted golden liquid with a healthy finger's worth of rocky white head that reduced to a bubbly patch and steaks of sticky lacing down the sides of the glass.

S - First whiff reveals a fresh, hoppy scent that combines fresh cut grass, orange and lemon zest and a hint of pine sap as well as a slight waft of alcohol, which is surprising for a 5% session beer. Malt character is biscuity with wheat and honey undertones, giving the nose a hint of sweetness.

T - Hop flavor tends to take on more of a grassy profile, although there is a hint of citrus rind around the edges. There's plenty of sweet malt suggesting fresh baked biscuits, caramel and honey. However, Moon Man finishes with a distinctive grassy hop bite with a hint of floral notes.

M - Medium bodied with a fairly oily texture for a pale ale, indicating that there's plenty of hops in there. Bitterness is a bit dry and crisp, and lingers on the palate for a bit then finishes quite clean overall.

D - This is a pretty bangin' pale ale overall with fairly aggressive hop bitterness that retains amazing drinkability. A great session beer from New Glarus. I wouldn't expect anything less.

3.65/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle poured into a New Glarus pokal. Clear, pale golden color, with a small white head that retained well and left sheets of lacing on the glass. Nice looking brew. Clean, fresh aroma, pale malts and citrusy hops, light floral/grassy notes. The taste was a bit more thinned out than the aroma would have led me to believe, but it was still good overall: crisp and clean, light citrusy and floral hops, and some sugary pale malt sweetness. Light-medium body, easy drinkability, nicely balanced, with a very mild bitterness. A good, simple pale ale.
