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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A drinkable if unremarkable beer. Cloudy, yellowish pour. Mildly aromatic with light malts and some sweet notes with a hint of breadiness. The flavors, too, were mild — sweetness and grains and a hint of corn. There was a slight tartness in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head that quickly dissapeared into a ring of soft foam. This was a golden yellow coloudy beer served too cold to detect any decent aroma. I would desribe this beer as having a rich body. Very drinkable with some sweet flavours not reminiscent of malt and a slight bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow, decent white head. Fuity aroma - kinda pineappley, a little banana-y, a bit grapefuity. More full bodied than I anticipated. Mildly toasty, with a surprising touch of rye at the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer introduces itself with a good hearty aroma of yeast that has hints of citrus fruit and corn in the background. This beer fills the glass with a cloudy amber solution with no head and a constant stream of carbonation bubbles rising to the surface. This thin beer enters the mouth smoothly and distributes a sweet nutty fruit taste that perks the tongue.
