Spotted Cow pours a lovely golden-yellow with a finger and a half of head, and it laces nice as you sip.

The smell is yeast and bread with hints of banana and citrus fruits. I don't really get the corn or hop scents that others have noted. It's a delightful smell, not overbearing.

The beer tastes great. I get similar flavors to the nose, with a lingering sweetness that makes Spotted Cow sessionable as hell. Just a super-drinkable beer.

Mouthfeel is nice, but nothing special. The carbonation grabs your attention but seems to settle as you drink.

Overall, a fun, tasty beer. If you're looking for something to drink regularly, go for Spotted Cow. It does feel and taste a little thin toward the end, but the flavors stay intact for the most part. Cheers!
