COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer could be Chicago’s replacement for Spotted Cow. It’s light, creamy, fruity on the finish, golden, refreshing and easy drinking with clear attention to detail and totally sessionable.

From a 12 oz bottle in an English pint glass. Pours clear copper. Nice fruity bready aroma. Sharp malty, slightly bitter taste, but smooth finish. A very nice full bodied blonde ale.

Poobah (370) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Light amber with a very thin head and a mild, malty nose. Opens easy with medium carbonation, then ends thin, sticky, and somewhat hoppy.

sawbuck (610) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Aroma of corn....some fresh bread. Light golden color with a white thin head. Sweet grains up front. Bready, maltiness dominates. Bitterness cuts in peppery with a hint of spices. Fairly one dimensional in taste which I guess is the point. Light mouth feel. Finish is muted bitterness with some pepper. Average.

CardsPackHawks (172) - South Elgin, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2016
Trying to be a New Glarus Spotted Cow, but not as good. It is creamy with a deep gold and head on the pour. The aroma has an odd metallic touch, that is unfortunately also present at the end of the taste. Not terrible, but make trips up to Wisconsin for the real deal.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Crisp grain on the nose, crackers and grain. Medium bodied, sweet malt and more cracker and grain notes. Crisp finish with lingering cracker and malt.

Single bottle from Binny’s, 1/14. I get to give this one its "ranking." Malty, sweet beer smell under the cap. In the glass, there’s short fizzy head, and kind of a cheap lager smell. Taste is a little thick in the mouthfeel, which does notch it up a bit. It’s okay; not the Spotted Cow killer they’re claiming to be, just a little too sweet. After their many wilder brews on tap and in limited bombers, I guess they want to zero in on some basic beers to go to stores every day.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pour on tap, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought biscuit, bread, some yeasty notes with a hint of spicy and earthy hops. Taste had a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, some hints of wheat into a bit of earth, spice, finishing bitter, dry.

nuplastikk (5709) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12oz bottle. Macro-ish tastes, funky garbage tinged off aroma. Someone who drinks macro beer would probably enjoy this a lot, but it is a pretty shabby beer for most on this site. A pinch better ingredients, but significant less quality control. Definitely one I won;t buy again.

Average at best. Not close to spotted cow. Likely wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
