12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
A - Hazy golden body with one finger of creamy white foam and plenty of fizzy carbonation.
S - Cracker-like malt, corn, and a bit of floral hop aroma.
T - Cereal graininess, corn, and some lemon. A bit of spicy-floral hop flavor and very little bitterness.
M - Very smooth, light-medium body.
D - Decent beer for the style, but not very exciting. I think it's clear why this beer is so popular. If you're used to drinking BMC, Spotted Cow must seem like the nectar of the gods. I can't really see a good reason to add it to my list of regulars, though.

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.
