Pours, from the bottle, a slightly hazy golden color into the pint glass. The head is white and foamy to abut an inch in height. I does not stick around long, even though carbonation bubbles continual rise from the bottom. The smell is faintly fruity, though not at all convincing that there is any thing there for the palate to await in anticipation. The taste is like the smell, average at best. Being a HUGE fan of some of the New Glarus offerings, I was more than a bit disappointed in this beverage. Not an awful beer by anymeans, but not a brew I would go in search of.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. At long last I have come to review the legendary New Glarus Spotted Cow. Acquired as part of the mixed variety twelve pack, and gifted to me from my mom.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours a crisp, lightly hazy straw yellow colored body with about a finger and a half of foamy white head. Leaves behind some nice spotty lacing. Looks very nice.
S - The nose doesn't have much to offer, but it is still fresh and pleasant smelling. Crisp, grainy, & wheaty.
T - The taste follows the nose - crisp grain / wheat, light corn / husk type presence.
M - Very easy drinking. Smooth, crisp, clean. Light-bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, while it might not be the most complex of beers it is straight and to the point. A simple, pure, fresh, clean beer. Crisp, smooth, and refreshing. It's easy to see why this is the top rated 'cream ale' on BeerAdvocate. Would definitely drink much much more of this if it was more attainable to me.
New Glarus Spotted Cow ---4/5.
