3.66/5  rDev -1.6%

A: A nice golden hue that is a good amount transparent, leaves a tiny head at the top and a good amount of lacing as you drink this one.

S: Not to much on the nose, slight hints of citrus and corn/breadyness, a slight sweetness on the nose as well.

T: The taste is not bad at all its the after taste thats the problem, a good amount of citrus on the tongue and some sweetness as well.

M: Light bodied and not a great amount of carbonation, weird at first sip.

O: Not a bad beer from Wisconsin, I enjoyed it especially the whole six pack.

A very nice brew. Very similar to a heffe but with simpler ingredients(?). Pours with a weak head (1/4in) and leaves a little lacing on the glass as drank. Has very pleasant citrus/tangy flavor for such a weak foam and feels wonderful at first sip.
Definitely worth trying.

This is perhaps the best, most enjoyable beer produced in the great state of Wisconsin. It's smooth, light flavor is an ideal beer to share among friends year round. It is arguably the most beloved beer in the state. As it is only available within state borders, I recommend you stock up next time you are driving through.

New Glarus Spotted Cow: This was the beer of choice while visiting the folks back in Wisconsin.

This brew has a champagne color with a slight clowdy look to it. The head is well developed and has some mass to it, but does fade. Aroma is rather thin. Very little carbonation to be had.

The flavor is clean with a finish of champagne. Will pare well with food, but not a beer that stands alone. Worth a try....
