New Glarus Spotted Cow has a thick, foamy, white head, a somewhat hazy, golden, bubbly appearance, with some bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet corn, malt, and a touch of fruit. Taste is of mild, sweet bread, malt, mellow bitterness, and a ghost of smoke. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and New Glarus Spotted Cow finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing.

This is one of my go-to beers when I'm spending time in Wisconsin. No surprises, just a consistently great tasting beer with an ABV that allows me to have a few.
