Moon Man, No Coast Pale Ale
New Glarus Brewing Company, Wisconsin
---from bottle to pint glass---

Light and golden (reminds me of my Keystone light days…don’t judge me). Beautiful floating sediment. Head starts off incredibly thick, but shrinks to a quarter inch ivory head, beautiful lacing.

Im getting loads of grapefruit and a touch of pear. My Brazilian wife says it smells like Jambos… I don’t know what that is, but she seems certain.

Wife says it tastes like Jambos (look em up). Lots of citrus hops. Malted grain beg for your attention, but you might not notice it at first sip.

Light with good carbonation. Grain flavor lingers in mouth. Perfect amount of bitter.

I may have just found my favorite American Pale Ale. I couldn’t stop smelling this beer at first. Very drinkable, I could see myself drinking 6 of these without notice; witch could be attributed to the light ABV. Cannot get this in Minnesota – bummer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Nice aroma of tropical fruit, citrus and light biscuit malt. Great mellow flavor of light sweet biscuit malt, lemon citrus, light tropical fruit with a mild hop finish. Medium bodied. This beer is deceptively subtle, with all the flavors somewhat subdued, but the balance and taste are quite excellent. One of the quieter, but most enjoyable pale ales I've had.

Happy to be in WI and pick up a sixer from this great brewery.

A - Gold hue with a nice head.

S - Wheat, floral hops, lemon and a touch of grass. Really nice.

T - Nice clean caramel malt profile forms a fine stage for the primary flavors to hit the palette. Grapefruit, lemon tartness and a touch of grain.

M - Mild body with moderate carbonation.

O - This is a fantastic APA that is damn near the best in its category. For those who prefer the style without heavy bitterness, this beer does not disappoint.

12oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

Appearance is crystal clear golden color with large fluffy white head.

Smell is all citrus.

Taste is light. Flavor of banana, lemon, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is thin, and heavily carbonated.

Overall this was alright. A little light on flavor for my tastes.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow color with great clarity and bubbles seen coming up through the glass.

Smell: Grapefruit, tangerine, orange rind, floral, caramel, bready malts, mango, and peaches. It smells great.

Taste: Tropical notes are more noticeable. Passion fruit, mango, peach, tangerine, and grapefruit followed by pale and bready malts. Lasting hop flavor and mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium carbonation, light to medium bodied, mild hop bitterness, and last citrus flavor. Very drinkable and enjoyable too.

Overall: Wow!!!! I really enjoyed this beer a lot. Looks like there is a trip to Wisconsin in the future.
