Not sure what cows have to do with this cream ale, but I liked the taste. It was light on the hops, which was fine with me, though an APA should be hoppier. A pleasant, thirstquenching summer ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy dark gold color with lots of little yeast floaties ... resembled a hefeweizen. Not much head retention. Aroma dominated by yeast spiciness and some hidden burnt malt (canít explain it, but it was there.) The body was heavy, but really lacked the flavor to back the weight. Thin on malt flavor or hops, this beer seems to attempt at a style/character? that it just doesnít reach.

very pale yellow, a bit hazy. Nice flavors as it warms, slightly fruity, surprisingly bitter. Watery when cold from the bottle, but sweetens with fruity apply tones as it warms. Witte bier like aftertaste at the end.

pale yellow and keeps a meniscus-like head. aroma is fruity but the flavor is very thin and weak..not sure what to make of this one.

Why so low, folks? This is dandy stuff. I agree with Glazemonsterís review. Update: my partner is not much of a beer enthusiast, but he *loves* Spotted Cow. Try it on your non-beer-loving friends!

Seems to me to be more like a watered down pale ale than a cream ale...not a creamy body whatsoever, very bland and finishes thin.

A half hearted attempt in my opinion. Thin and light with not much going on in either the hop or malt departments. Definitely one of New Glarusí weakest offerings.

I definitely like the cow jumping over the state of Wisconsin. This may be the best thing it has going for it though. Now I donít mean to be all harsh towards the beer but it isnít that great. I will admit I find myself ordering it quite a bit at the bars in Wisconsin though. It is definitely not my first choice but what are you gonna do when your only other options are miller, bud and coors on tap?

Light disappearing head with little lasting lacing. It has a rounded taste due to the corn, which you can partially smell. No real hops to notice. Something that goes down a little too easily.
