COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with flaked barley and the finest Wisconsin malts. We even give a nod to our farmers with a little hint of corn. Naturally cloudy we allow the yeast to remain in the bottle to enhance fullness of flavors, which can not be duplicated otherwise. Expect this Ale to be fun, fruity and satisfying.

Overrated and oversold. At best a very average ale that if not for its history wouldn't get a second try by most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delicious beer. I had this beer from the bottle in a pint glass. Appearance was golden yellow with a thin head. Very little in terms of aroma... Nothing distinct, but not saying that is a bad thing. Taste is where this beer excels... It is incredibly smooth and light. Nothing distinct, noting complex....l just a great lighter beer.

bottle. Pretty funky "cream ale". Know a few people that really enjoyed this ale - myself, not so much

The beer that put New Glarus on the map! How have I not rated it after all these years? Sweet and tart. Hint of newly picked corn for an aroma. Sparkly carbonation. I have a friend from South Africa who loves to work "Spotted Cow" into leisure-oriented conversations and it sounds so much better than I could ever say it.

On tap at a seafood restaurant. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with moderate white head. Mild aroma of perfume and red fruit. Delicate flavor or perfume and flowers with red fruit. Surprisingly good.

ok. im really not sure what they were trying to do here. cream ale? not at all. light belgian inspired sounds better. In the end this taste like a Leffe beer. light ok to drink but nothing to do backflips over.

Pale yellow, nose is bitter with peach and pineapple. Taste is smooth and earthy. minor malt profile, silky smooth mouthfeel. Really nice but not pushing any palate limits.

Everybody from WI that hears I like craft beer is all, "you gotta try spotted cow! Itís the best!" Here we go. Pours light straw with slight diaphany, a central dome of white foam. Smells of white grapes, hay, some corn and powdered milk. Flavor of beer, milk and some rice, the aftertaste is slightly sweet and the beer would go well with vanilla bean ice cream in the summertime. Thin with moderate carb and a semi dry, crisp finish. An okay beer. Serving type: bottle 10-27-2012

Iíve always thought this was a nice gateway beer. I know many people in Wisconsin who would say this us there first full flavor beer. Overall, I think it is pretty good. Pours like a normal lager. Golden in color. Big white head. The aroma is kind of yeasty and citrus fruits. Fairly bitter tasting. Really has flavor all around the tongue. Would recommend anyone visiting the south west area of Wisconsin to not only visit the New Glarus Brewery, but also the town itself, as it is a charming Swiss like town.

A good all-around beer, reminds me of fresh corn on the cob - pretty mild in the flavor department but with a nice balance that leans towards the sweet/smooth end of the spectrum and overall very drinkable. Excellent choice if youíre in the mood for something a little lighter.
