Let me start by sharing what's on the side of the bottle: "For all you people who are afraid of beer you can't see through, this one is for you. This beer is yellow, fizzy, and clearly meant for washing dirt out of your mouth after mowing the lawn." I'm not even sure it's good for that. It's definitely yellow and fizzy, with no head to speak of, and zero lacing. It almost smells like a loaf of bread, and nearly tastes the same. It's very earthy and grainy with nary a hop to be found. Man, I love me some Caldera, but I would rather drink a Bud Light than this on a hot summer day. Sorry guys, but this beer gets an F.

Poured a very pale yellow. No head whatsoever. Some bready aroma, but very light. Very faint lemony flavor. Extremely light malt flavors that finished with a distinct light beer aftertaste.
This beer shoud've been labeled as a light beer. Shame on me for buying a lager with an ABV less than 4. Almost any mass produced light beer is better than this one. I even drank it after mowing my lawn. Should've had a tall glass of water.

[Best served in a Lager glass]

The pour was a clear pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly, down to a sparse film with a very small collar and some poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, a mild grassy hop and a soapy yeast with a strong adjunct odor (rice and grain).

The taste was lightly acidic and had a light mild sweetness throughout with an ever so light bitterness at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a mild grainy Lager taste left to linger for a short time longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

Overall a pretty basic tasting Lager, that is nice and low in alcohol and light enough not to fill you up. In other words, a great session beer that would be a good addition to a hot days beer selection...

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

appearance: Wow very active beer with a haze through it. The white lace does stay on top forever it felt like.

Smell: Hoppy with needles. It really is a classic lager smell

Taste: Clean with off flavor on the back end that I just can't put my finger on it. someone help me with it....

mouthfeel is bad. It burns there is so much carbonation. I just can't do it. It honestly sent my taste-buds into shock on the first drink there was so much activity on my tongue.

I found myself wanting to rank it higher but it just wasn't there to get the higher rating.

220z bomber poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours yellow and fizzy - nothing special here.

S: Smells decent, like a typical mid-range lager.

T: I was really expecting a lager with a bit of hop to it, judging by the name - "Lawnmower Lager" thinking it might be a little grassy (hoppy), much to my dismay this couldn't be further from the truth. There's a weird overwhelming honey malt flavor that is out of balance and I really don't get a nice lager flavor at all. It really reminds me of that cheap beer - "Oregon Honey Beer". Nothing special at all, and especially at $5.00 a bottle.

M: Light bodied and fizzy as hell.

D: It's actually quite drinkable and probably it's greatest quality, but at $5.00 a bottle - give me a break.
