1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I had heard of this beer often and finally tasted it. Big letdown. There was absolutely nothing special about it. Hazy amber with a weak white head, there was no appreciable aroma. Maybe some citrus, modicum of malt. Weak and watery in the mouth. The flavor was lackluster. More in the class of a PBR or BMC.

upon reading the bottle i have come to conclude that it actually says dank right on the bottle, vlenen dank! haven’t got a clue what vlenen means but I’ll go along with it, yellow cloud no head, offy yeast nose, tart citrus nip, zesty and slightly bitter, dermphhh

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, cloudy color. Smells like flowers and some hops. Taste of malt, corn and bread. Good beer for a summer day after you milk some cows in a barn.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, small head. Aroma is sweetish malty and hoppy. Flavour is very smooth and quite lame. Fruity hops meeting some malts. A bit acidic hints also. OK brew, but quite one-dimensional...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 12 oz.
Pale, a bit hazy yellow, small white head. Sourish fruity and malty aroma, cow is what pops up in to my mind. Quite witbier like nose with those fruits and some spices. Fruity (watermelon, ananas), malty, corn, very soft palate. Not very exciting beer.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours well, nice color. Sweet, smooth taste, very mild hop aftertaste. Not my favorite, but close.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pretty transparent golden/yellow color. Aroma is slightly sweet and a little bit grainy. Flavor is also sweet with slight hops in the finish. This is smooth and unoffensive, but its lacking an identity. Nothing really defines it and I dont think I’ll particularly remember it, other than for the fact that I thought I was grabbing a NG Hop Hearty off of the shelf (they both have green labels) and was disappointed when I got home after a 3 hour drive from Madison and realized that in fact, it was not the Hop Hearty Ale... Oh well :)

All hail the cow. Once you have one, you better be near the keg because you’ll have to have several more.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It had a cloudy yellow color with a small head. I tried this beer on tap at a small resort in Wisc. I was impressed with the flavor for a lager and how smooth and refreshing it was.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
aggressive pour gave little head. small whitish foam circle settled. a bit yellow, but i like the semitranslucent opacity. aroma immediately brought cheap light lagers to mind. discouraged, i found the taste is actually decent and a bit flavorful even. milkish flavor emerges as the beer warms up. good mouthfeel, i think this beer would be better from the bottle where its aroma can’t hurt it. aroma improved with time.
