Spotted Cow is one of a kind. Only found in Wisconsin. I live in Illinois and I go up to Wisconsin every once and a while when I can so that I can get a six pack. Real light and creamy. Almost rich in its taste. A little wet on the finish. All around solid. Get it if you can.

Love Spotted Cow and consider it the nectar of the gods, especially on tap. Don't really like the other New Glarus offerings.
