Wisconsin's best cream ale. Spotted Cow is way overrated. Do yourself a favor in the Summer. Pick up some of these in the 16oz cans (not bottles), chill 'em then pour 'em into a frosted pint glass. Real nice. Whoa.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

i thought this a really serviceable cream ale, despite its low scores on here. the bottle popped open and the beer poured clear golden with some body into my glass, showing a solid half inch of lasting white head with decent ring lacing as i sip it down. the nose is sweet and fuller bodied, rich with grain character, fresh and bready, rustic even. the flavor is similar to the nose, with some longer lasting sweetness in small amount, and the slightest grassy hop presence in the finish. its rather basic beer, simple and not intended to be challenging, but it tastes real nice, and is supremely refreshing. carbonation is high, and it has enough body to satisfy a craft beer guy in addition to probably being quite appealing to the BMC drinker. good first beer from these guys, i have one other in my fridge i may dip into tonight.

Look - golden color beer and pretty much transparent. White head but no lacing
smell - sweet creamy buttery smell
taste - kind of taste like buttery popcorn turned into beer. Has a slight bitter after taste, probably the hops in it.
feel - light to more medium body which I didn't expect out of a cream ale and lots of carbonation.
overall - pretty good cream ale. Most cream ales like little kings or spotted cow are so blah that you don't really get much out of them but this at least has character.

a hazy yellow in color, finger of white head, decent retention.
smells of orange zest, sweet pilsner malt, grassy hops. a zesty citrus flavor up front with a mild grassy/herbal bitterness in the finish. a very sweet yet refreshing beer. light-medium in body, high carbonation.. very easy drinking with a slight creamy feel on the lips.

overall, not a bad beer by any means. it's hard to make a distinct cream ale, which this one does.
