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.

12oz bottle poured into a New Glarus 20th Anniversary Pilsner Glass.

The beer pours a lightly hazy golden straw color, light hues of copper with plenty of bubbles rising to the top of glass that supports a soapy, frothy white head, about 2 fingers high that has nice retention and leaves a nice swath of sticky lace behind. The aroma is very pleasant, lots of soft, citrusy hops that are also lightly floral, delicate as well that brings out a nice counterbalance of pale cereal grain. It's a very simple and straightforward, but very balanced and inviting. The flavors are right on point, lots of delicate and citrusy hops, floral with a bit of pine, very mild bitterness with some sweetness from the malt, lightly grainy but very smooth and easy. The body is nice, light carbonation that has just enough zip, although it feels a bit weak at times, coats the mouth well, and finishes very mildly with a faint dry bite.

Verdict: A lovely pale ale from New Glarus. Refreshing, balanced and very enjoyable, just enough hops to impart a nice array of flavors but not enough to cripple the beer with bitterness.

12oz bottle poured into teku. Thanks, Chris!

A: Looks like liquefied pale golden hay

S: Phenomenal aroma of melon, white grape, white peach, and subtle lemon peel; what a delicious aroma

T: lightly fruity and hoppy, some white grape, and a nice dry, peppery finish; maybe somewhat thin-tasting but to be expected and acceptable with a this 'low' of an abv; tastes great, and perfect for a warm summer night

M: light-bodied, dry, and so refreshing

O: one of the best american pale ales i've had. so much flavor, yet so light and crushable. inhale deeply, crush, and repeat

Simply one of the best beers I,ve ever drank. It has turned me onto American Pale Ales and I,m very excited to try more beers in this catagory to compare. I enjoy this beer at many locations and times but standing at a hot grill with a Moon Man is my favorite.

Very happy to try this from a can. Everything is amplified a little bit. Aroma is more apparent- a lot of apricot & melon. Hop flavors are sharper- matching aroma but with a bit more bitterness than the bottles I've had. Make no mistake- this is the same beer as the bottle but def fresher and with less oxidation and hop fall out.

Received a bottle from a coworker who had a relative pick this one up for him. No date besides on the back of the bottle there is a stamp that says 0704 then underneath it has 09:31. Not sure what this refers to.

A - Pours out crystal clear light golden with a one finger frothy white head. Looks nice and refreshing.

S - Sweetness, Pine, breadyness, grapefruit, citrus. The aroma is balanced with a pleasant hop sweetness.

T - Bitterness, pine, citrus, sweet malts with a bread character.

M - Light body and lots of carbonation, dry, refreshing.

O - This is a nice pleasant Pale Ale that should be drank on a summer day. Really refreshing and the flavor dies off fast leaving you wanting to take another sip. My only complaint if their was one is that the flavor is not quit as strong as what the aroma was suggesting. If you want a nice refreshing brew on a hot day and you like the hopped up beers give this one a go and you will not be disappointed, Cheers!
