Really did have a creamy taste. Also very smooth. The look can be deceiving, it looks like an average American adjunct lager, which had me a little worried before I tasted it. But it feels much fuller in the mouth and it tastes exactly as labeled: a light, not very hoppy American ale with a moderate cream hint.

L: hazy straw gold permeated by rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" white foam cap with fair to poor retention.

S: sweet corn, very light fruit, faint hint of sulfur, cracker, very low levels of DMS (cooked creamed corn).

T: lightly sweet on the tongue with sweet corn, light fruit, moderate low bitterness and moderate low malty sweetness. Very faint cooked cream corn taste at the end with a faint trace of apple. It has more malt flavors as it warms.

F: Outboard is light and crisp with a medium light body and above average smooth carbonation.

O: This light flavored beer is easy to drink.

Wisconsin's best cream ale. Spotted Cow is way overrated. Do yourself a favor in the Summer. Pick up some of these in the 16oz cans (not bottles), chill 'em then pour 'em into a frosted pint glass. Real nice. Whoa.

I live in Minnesota... therefore its not easy to come by "spotted cow". I was offered this beer as a sub for the illusive brew. I was told id like it as much or better.... and alas i was not lead astray.... A lovely cream ale indeed! :)
