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.

Visiting the folks back in Wisconsin, I picked up a six of Moon Man. Not sure what Moon Man is all about, but hey, I'm in it for the beer. Nice citrus aroma, odd for a pale ale. The hops are up front in the flavor, some nice malt follows, then comes a watery finish. Overall, an easy drinking beer, but not up to the pale ale's available in the Colorado front range.

I had this for the first time about six to eight months ago, ive been keeping beer notes since before then. I gave this a 10 outta 10 in my personal notes from when i first tried it and was looking forward to trying again.

the appearance and smell of this beer is great and couldn't smell better, hints of citrusy hops and a well balnaced pale reinforce this beer.

there is medium carbonation and great well balanced mouthfeel in this beer.

the taste is... well... indescribable. perfect balance when it comes to the hops, malts and wheat-barley. my go to pale ale is summits e.p.a. most pale ales are either not hoppy enough or too hoppy and should be classified as an i.p.a. this is PERFECT in every aspect not only as a pale ale but as a easy to drink - everyday - sessionable brew. AWESOME. if there is a better pale ale out there... SHOW ME! I LOVE THIS BEER, wish i didn't have to visit my inlaws to get it, also wish that i could get this in a 12 pack instead of just a six! sooo gooody goooosh good!!! (whatever that means?) buy it! try it! love it!

Tasted 30 October 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a bright pale orange-yellow. I love the color. Completely clear, with a thin stream of bubbles in the center of the glass. One finger of white head, dense but not long-lasting. Pretty good lacing on the edges.

Smell is delightfully hoppy. Loads of bright citrus, lemon and grapefruit with a touch of orange. Hint of pine, some warm grainy malts providing backing. I really like this. A bit tingly.

Taste is quite nice as well. Smooth, balanced, a decent chunk of hop flavor without much bite. Citrus again. Malts come through more strongly, light grains, a little earthy.

Light body, tingly carbonation that gradually fades out. The feel and the flavor disappear around a bend together, drying out, right when I want them to. Very nice.

I really like this beer. Happy I finally tried it - I could drink a whole lot of it. Smell is the definite highlight, but everything else works together quite well. Refreshing, smooth, and clean.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a crystal clear golden color. There was a bit of an off-white head on it that didn’t linger long. Some lacing to it. The aroma is nice. Mainly a lighter pine and grapefruit hop nose. It has a very nice taste to it. a nice upfront flavor of pine and grapefruit hops, but not too strong or overly bitter. Medium bodied. Clean and refreshing. A good choice.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours light copper, cloudy, with 1/4 inch of white foam. Hoppy nose. Swirling blend nose. Taste is a thin non-nonsense malt with a subtle hop bump. One of the lightest pales I've ever had. Simple, yet elegant. Quite good, actually. Simplicity counts for something.
