A “no coast pale ale” from New Glarus Brewing Company, New Glarus, WI, Moon Man is a light gold, highly carbonated affair.  That carbonation keeps the fluffy head afloat and fuels the lace production, of which there is plenty.  The bouquet reveals some light, piney hops that are a bit catty, but not off-putting to fans of strong flavor-producing hops.  Assertive but not overpowering.  Moon Man is smooth and thin-bodied, and maybe a bit sweet, with an almost berry-like flavor that becomes more pronounced as the beer warms.  There is some bitterness in the finish, but overall Moon Man falls short of memorable.
