Highly regarded among both my older and younger friends, Spotted Cow by New Glarus Brewing is Brewmaster Dan Carey's most popular beer. It is as close to an everyman's macrobrew as you can get, yet this fine brew has a tad more character. Pours a clear light amber with nice head and a lingering white lace. Smell is fresh and lightly hoppy and sweet. Taste is crisp, lightly refreshing and as Michael Jackson likes to say, moreish. Very light mouthfeel, but there is slightly more there than the watered down swill that is consumed by the clueless. Very drinkable and satisfying.
