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.
