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.

Nothing to add that hasnít been said already, eaisly drinable and refreshing. A favorite among friends, clean and refreshing, and not over-priced.

Spotted Cow is a staple among widely available Wisconsin "micros". Itís got a sweet flavor to it that many people enjoy when they want to try something other than Miller, but itís pretty overrated imho. Itís a cloudy gold/orange with some speckled head. Aroma of sugar and corn. Itís often times the best thing available on tap in my part of Wisconsin, so Iím quite familiar with it. Good cold, not so good warm. Some aspect of it has a tendency to give headaches when consumed in mass quantities while fishing. This is most comparable (but inferior) to Lake Louieís Prairie Moon Farmhouse Ale. Still, it was one of the first beers that I "branched out" with, so I give it a few bonus points for being a gateway drug.

I never understood what was so good about this beer yet it is so popular here in Wisconsin. While i find this beer very refreshing I would not buy it on my own.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 Boring and light with fruit notes. I donít understand the popularity of this beer. Nothing special but sort of pricy.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of lemon and Tang. Yes I said Tang. Decent mouthfeel with a very reserved corn, orange, soap taste that finishes with a wimper. Not much there but not bad either.

Pours very cloudy yellow with a small white head. The aroma is lemon, bready with a touch of spice. Flavor is semi-sweet, soap, lemon and banana. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Blah.

12oz - thanks for the freebie Hopscotch - Aroma of yeast, wet hay, lemon, and a bit of hops. Pours cloudy yellow with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma and is what the rural midwest would taste like if it was bottled. Palate is clean and tart. More than I expected. This is quite a tasty summer brew.

12 oz bottle from the woodmanís beer cooler in kenosha. My bro tells me this is the breweryís best seller in WI. The nod to Wisconsin corn farmers seems to be more than a nod. What is a nod exactly? Kinda sweet, like a miller high life. This brewery makes some far more interesting beers. I give them credit for realizing that they have to have something that is a big seller to promote the label. Needs more barley malt and more hop complexity IMHO. Drinkable, but not worth their other beers.
