Spotted cow is a staple in my diet. a good full flavored beer with a sweet malt that just melts in your mouth. Poured into a pint glass this beer has a small amount of head with good looking lace, color is a nice light gold while being quite cloudy. I highly recommend this beer.

A very well done beer. I can see why it is an institution in Wisconsin. The beer pours a bit hazy, with a good amount of carbonation. The flavors linger on the tongue after a sip for only a moment. Overall, quite refreshing. This beer will drink well on a hot summer's day.
