This beer is cloudy from the yeast...donít expect a bottle to look the same as tap. In fact, I have had some pints from a tap that resembled flan--in looks only.
Good beer, a little sweet.

This sour yeasty beer has got to be the most popular microbeer in WI. Everyone asks for it but to me Iíde rather drink something a little darker like the fat squirell by NG. Spotted Cow is a good one though donít get me wrong!

On tap at the Hotel Trempleau. Pale gold with a HUGE white head. Creamy and sweet. This is now my all time favorite cream ale. Archetype of the style. A delicious beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a decent enough drink, good for a hot Summer day, but nothing spectacular. Itís a cloudy, straw-colored drink with a very short-lived head. The aroma is malt with tart oranges. Medium bodied and carbonationally challenged, it has a light malt flavor with a bit of citric tartness. Oddly, I donít really detect their admitted addition of corn. Iíd drink it again, but not if there were other choices.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 Bottle: Cloudy pale yellow gold with a small white head that faded quickly. Aroma is bready malt, yeast and grain with a tiny hint of floral hops. Flavor is malt, corn, yeast and a little bit of citrus hops. Smooth and medium bodied with little carbonation, this one goes down very easy. Nothing spectacular but still very good.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale cloudy straw color, with a small layer of coarse white head that fades quickly. Very lot threshold of aroma. What is there is soured corn and vaguely grassy hops. Some mild dill hop flavor, strange sour malt, abrupt dry finish. Medium body. Kind of lifelless on the palate. I have to wonder if the bottle I am tasttng is a bit past itís prime. This is not bad, but certainly a confusing tasting. The sourness is actually kind of refreshing and interesting, but also a bit off, and I just canít believe it is intentional in a cream ale.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I honestly did not understand this beer. Almost no hops flavor, compounded by an overly aggressive corn taste (I always thought that was a bad thing?). It had almost no taste, and a rather bad aftertaste. Just not my style of beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 Light to medium yellow pour with a decent amount of carbonation. Smells a bit of funky hops. Some yeast, corn and fruitty flavors in the taste. Fairly unique flavor profile. Slighty sour taste as expected in a farmhouse ale.
