Beer added by: Skidz on 03-12-2010

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

Pours a very pure golden color. It retains a beautiful white head and optimal lacing.

A variety of hops his the nose off the bat, but it isn't overpowering. Floral and piney notes up front followed by a sweet/citrusy smell.

Amazed at how light and easy this goes down - I fear this would be overwhelming for a pale ale based off the taste, but it is a very well done beer. The variety of hop notes hit throughout the sip. I get the floral notes in the beginning and it finishes with a peachy taste.

A dry beer - very well carbonated. Hop bite up front, sweet in the middle, and a piney finish.

Great pale ale - well done without any of the bells and whistles. Refreshing to say the least - I am definitely going to buy again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Vibrant, pale orange colored body that is slightly hazy. A soft, porous head rests atop the body leaving great lacing in its wake. Carbonation is non-existent.

Aroma:
Lovely. I love the typical aromas encountered with this style and Moon Man does not disappoint! Fantastic bouquet of floral and fruity hops. Lavender, pine, peach, orange, pineapple, mango, are among the dominant players with hints of coconut and vanilla along for the ride.

Taste:
A bit lacking, actually. After such a beautiful aroma, perhaps I had prematurely put this one on a pedestal? It's light.. all flavors are muted. It's very inoffensive, making it easily accessible to those new to the style. I digress, toasted coconut and pine needles are your primary flavorings, with a dirty, earthy bittering hop. I also get slight pistachio notes.

Mouthfeel:
Medium-bodied beer with nice carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall:
Another solid entry from New Glarus, despite the lackluster taste. I like that it's approachable to those new to the style or those finally exploring the world beyond the domestic lager.
