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.

Medium golden, slightly cloudy appearance and white head start this one. Aroma is very faint. Flavor is fairly light and refreshing, but there's not much going on here. Overall, lacks depth and complexity.

Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A hint of corn?! Uh, well...there's really not much else to smell here...and the sugary sweetness it provides makes it difficult to take this one seriously. Why on earth would they bother to bottle condition this?

Good, not special though. Worth trying if you see nothing else you’ve had before.

Cream Ale? I really thought of this as more of a slight deviation on the saison style- had a small amount of spiciness along with a healthy dose of yeasty goodness. Definitely cloudy. Head was fluffy with some big bubbles. Heartly satisfying.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2004 Re-rate - I keep re-trying this beer because for some reason I think it should be good. Smells of corn. Tastes a little like it, too. A bit of yeastiness, subtle hops. If you’ve only had it on tap, I’d suggest trying it from the bottle (it’s bottle-conditioned).

Reminds me a lot of breakfast cereal: indiscriminate and soggy flakes. There’s a decent fuller feel to it, though, salvaging the rating.

Not a lot going on in here - a little sweet, a little grainy, mostly unsatisfying. The spotted cow stands sadly in a field of weeds and straw.

Pale golden with a white foamy coating. I don’t usually think of cows when I think of beer, but I guess the common link is Wisconsin. Mellow body with moderate hop bitterness, but tastes a little too much like an American standard to me. New Glarus makes much better beers than this one.

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.
