Bottle. Thanks Katherine! Cloudy yellow gold with a creamy white head that lasts on the sides and laces. Aromas of straw, light lemon notes, sweet grain, and yeast. Flavor is sweet grain, yeast, light lemon and straw. Light bodied, crisp.

Bottle pour. Thanks Frank. Pours super light with a faint pale malt aroma to it. Very light fruity flavor throughout with some apple for sure. Light body and a bit creamy. A very plain tasting beer for me, but the flavor that is there is decent. Never had too many good things to say about cream ales, but this was definitely on the better half of them. Overall, I’d call this a decent light beer.

Lighter color than I am interested in with a light cream taste that just doesn't hit my palate.

Color is light hazy golden with smattering of white head. Smells of banana, caramel, wheat, corn, a little spice. Taste is fruity up front, banana, caramel malt, ends with a slight bit of clove, pepper, wheat, corn, a very slight hop flavor. A good sweet enjoyable session beer, well done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy pale straw with a nice white head and good lacing. Aroma of grain and light fruit as well as a hint of corn, some bread and a lager smell. Taste is mild but fruitier than I anticipated with apples, and has a sweetness like pears in light syrup. Also some grainy bread flavors. Finishes with a bit of sweetness and has little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a light/medium body and high carbonation. Easy drinking and enough flavor to satisfy.

Various. This is a standard beer you can find anywhere in Wisconsin and it is well-loved. The cloudiness may be off-putting to some, but the palate is smooth. The flavor is mild yet pleasant, which makes it popular for a wide demographic who want an accessible beer. New Glarus has better beers than Spotted Cow, but none as popular or flexible.

Rated based on notes taken 26 Jun 2014 -- I had been wanting to try this beer for a long time. It has the typical corn sweetness that I love in cream ales, although it was surprisingly hazy, upon further review NG intended this to be the case. Still a very pleasant beer to drink.

Thanks to the Shockmels for the beer! Pours hazy pale straw with super fluffy white head. Aroma of light malt sweetness. Flavor is nicely sweet but lightly tart. Lingers well. I am not a cream ale fan but this is nice and drinkable. Depth of flavor with the lightness from the corn and great head from the flaked barley. Nice beer.

Light golden color, moderate white head. Grassy, floral, coriander, orange peel, and bread malt. Very light taste, mildly sweet, and much like macrobrew lagers but better. Light bodied, mild carb, and a clean finish.
