New Glarus Spotted Cow

Another day, another American craft beer from New Glarus Brewing Company. Today’s flavor happens to be Spotted Cow, their most popular beer.

I heard that there are more tap handles in Wisconsin that adorn the Spotted Cow insignia than the main macros combined. That is quite an accomplishment in spite of the fact that Miller’s home is Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I look back at when I rated this beer and wonder if I really would rate it that same today. My palate has been spoiled by an over abundance of big beers that continually make these “lighter” beers seem even lighter. It is still a damn good beer and, the main reason in my opinion that it is so popular, is the fact that it is nice and light and a good cross over beer – easy for the non-beer geek to pick up. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9, Taste: 9, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 9.0

Useless Fact: Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously.
