5/5 rDev +34.4%
Appearance - A hazy golden straw color with a touch of sunlight and a nice white head and good lacing.
Smell - Light and crisp with some fruity notes and a hint of hops on top of a sweet light grain smell.
Taste - Smooth in a great balance with the lively carbonation. There is just a touch of bitterness and a touch of corn. It leaves you wanting more and disappointed when the bottle is empty.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation and malt base really play well together making this light ale feel a little heavier and not like a light beer.
Overall - I loved it. There is not anotherlight ale that can match the balance of bitterness, malt background with the excellent carbonation. I feel the need to head to Wisconsin and smell their "Dairy Air" and have another Spotted Cow.

I just noticed there are 499 reviews for this, so let me be lucky number 500 ;)
This is a fantastic beer. Its the beer I drank before I got into beer. Yes its a great cream ale. Yes its craft beer. But, you have to realize that in WI this has become as common as miller light, so I argue one should review it as a BMC beer. I give it straight 5's for taking a strong bite out of the BMC hold here in WI, and would give it nearly as high of a rating even if it wasn't.
