Notes/Commercial Description:
The Lawn Ranger leaps triumphantly, from yard to yard, knoll to brook, fighting overgrown weeds, ungodly insects and gnomes every step of the way. Cream ale in hand, he fights with a brazen display of malted, expertly fermented showmanship. He leaves a trail of hearty good times and happy hours in his wake. We’ll follow you anywhere, Lawn Ranger…

This one pours a very cloudy golden color with a nice pillowy white head that settles at a fast to medium rate with no lacing down the glass.

The nose is sweet and fruity with with a sharp hop note that has hints of lemon, oranges, grass bread and the faintest hint of black pepper.

The taste is a nice creamy effervescent experience that is a light mixing of dry malt with spicy hops and creamy notes of citrus, grass and a nice clean dry finish that does not cling to the palate.

The mouthfeel is a definite cream ale. it is creamy and silky and is a definitive cream ale.

Overall this is an exceptional cream ale and meets all the criteria for such a style extremely well. This one is definitely Americanized Cream Ale and has a bit more hops, .less sweetness and is just damn good.

Definitely drink this beer

Thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is of malts, clean, refreshing, a touch of rye. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, as advertised, is a fine lawnmower beer.

The wondrous JenRay has come through again with more CANned beers in furtherance of The CANQuest (TM)! She is a regular CANtributor to the madness and one who is fully worthy of a trade. Texas seems to really be embracing the idea of craft CANs.

From the CAN: "Cream Ale is a style that is under-appreciated by most of the craft beer world. We want to change that. Lawn Ranger is a session ale with a solid malt character from the Ameri[CAN] 2-row, with rye and flaked oats thrown in for good measure. Rye and oats are not typical ingredients for Cream Ale, but we like the additional character and body they provide. We use a minimal blend of Apollo and Bravo hops to balance the malts and German Alt yeast. This 'Lawnmower Ale' is the one to drink during the hot Texas summers or when you want to have more than a couple. Saddle up, Mower Maverick!"; "Brewed in East Texas".

Well, I am in the minority, as usual. One of my favorite beers, as an underage CANsumer, was Genesee Cream Ale (Genny Cream) and I really drank it up during the summer of 1990 at Amigo's Bar & Grill in Portland, Maine. I will be interested to see what rye and oats do for the style. They CAN't hurt in lieu of corn, I will wager.

The Crack! unleashed a fair amount of foam, so I backed off and allowed things to settle just a bit before proceeding. It was certainly a brimful CAN, but I was unsure that volume was the root cause and so I went with a gentle pour. This was the right idea as mounds of pillow, bone-white head immediately formed and threatened to overmount the edge of the glass. I was left with just over a finger of rocky, bone-white head as a result. Color was a murky lemonade-yellow (SRM = 3.7). Nose had a grassiness to it that made me look up the hops varieties being used. Bravo was the aroma hop, but I was curious to see what Apollo was going to do to the taste. The mouthfeel was quite effervescent, paving the way for the riot of flavors to come: citrus, tropical fruit, black pepper and freshly-mown grass all came to mind. This was NOT the cream ale of my misspent youth, lemme tell ya! Great lacing began to form and cling to the interior of my glass as I pondered this beer. The finish was semi-dry with the rye providing a lingering black pepper taste that stuck in the back of my throat. Color me impressed! If this truly fits the definition of a session beer, then I would highly recommend loading up with some for the upcoming summer. If not, then CANsume at will, but know that it is a very different iteration of the style.
