12oz bottle into SA perfect pint. Thanks again, Jay!
A: Pours a very lightly cloudy lemon color with a crazy frothy bone white head that really frothed up with the pour. After it settled and I was able to fill my glass a thick foam sat atop the liquid until the final sip.
S: Light notes of spicy hops, flaked barley, dry grains and clean malts. Yeast adds another layer of peppery spice as well. Light, spicy, and crisp.
T: Follows the nose with crisp and creamy flavors of cracked grains, pale malts, herbal and spicy hops and dry yeast. Slightly fruity. Very flavorful for being so light. Finish is peppery and the aftertaste is slightly sweet.
M: Super creamy moutfeel from all that ample carbonation, drying and refreshing, with a medium body.
O: Not a bad brew. Clean, crisp, light and refreshing. Thanks again, jbck109.

An offering from New Glarus Brewing Co. that I have had on many occasion while living in Madison. Finally decided to review it.
A - The Spotted Cow has a faint hazy yellow gold color, mainly due to the yeast left in the bottle. It also poured a very white fluffy head, about an inch that dissipated at an average pace.
S - On the nose I get light fruits, a little citrus from the hops, barley malt, yeast, and the unmistakable hint of corn.
T - On the palate I got exactly what I smelled on the nose, and that hint of corn on the finish adds a distinct sweetness, but not too much.
M - Medium-bodied on the palate, carbonated very well while conditioned in the bottle.
O - A fantastic offering from New Glarus. Each time I have a Spotted Cow, I understand more and more why this beer is their staple. It i a fantastic Wisconsin farmhouse ale with an unmistakable character. I do like it much more on tap than in the bottle, but it doesn't detract from this great brew. Great from start to finish.
