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.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Bottled. This is described on the label as a "Wisconsin farmhouse ale," and indeed it seems more like a French than a cream ale. Nice looking head dissipates quickly, leaving a hazy, strawlike body. I get nice effervescence and a grapefruitty, almost sour taste. They get some props for not only admitting to using corn, but giving a reason. Corn seems to be the source of the sweetness more than the malt. Hop finish is there, but not distracting. A very pleasant experience.

12floz bottle that can be had for $1.25-1.50 per unit. Code is on bottle, but Im not looking it up to determine possible freshness date. Gold, like corn with a light haze as it appears in my pint glass. White bread and lemon zest aroma are mild, but pleasant. Cream ale is not a style that will garner much praise as it embraces the adjunct. Still this sets the bar high compared to the decent and not so decent cream ales Ive had before. Light, low carbonation feel goes down easy. Grassy grain taste is simple and to the point, which is what this beer is all about.

Not super flavorful. No unpleasant flavors either though. Smells vaguely milky but doesnt taste it. Smooth in the middle. Super hazy with particulates.

A beer for true Wisconsinites. For anyone who takes a trip to Wisconsin, you need to try some Spotted Cow.
