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…

Poured from the 16 oz. can, this beer is straw- colored with a nice head of white foam at first, but it falls apart quickly and leaves little or no lacing. The nose is one of sweet grain and a dash of fruit but little else.

This beer has an interesting flavor profile for its style. It features the taste of bread and cereal grains including rye and oats. I had to research to see if I was really tasting oats and sure enough, oats are used in the brewing process. The taste is sweet overall and is very much like a bowl of cereal with a little bit of added spice and a touch of generic fruit.

This is an interesting version of the cream ale style and I liked it more as I consumed. One thing I did notice is that each can has some yeast sediment in the bottom and in order to taste the beer the way it was intended, you need to pour into a glass only part way at first, then agitate the remains of the can in order to mix up the sediment before pouring the rest. if you do not do this, you will miss out on some of the flavor at first and the beer will seem a little bland.

Overall, this is a good everyday beer and it seems ideal for warm weather consumption. The refreshing character and more easy- going nature make it a good choice for a warm summer day. It isn't like other cream ales, but that might actually be a good thing as I cannot think of many cream ales that I like very much. Cheers!

Hazy, Chunky, Oaty, Bready

Drops out of can bright, pale golden with a creamy white lacing, however, the head drops quick and things go hazy with big sediment chunks; not appealing. An oaty breadiness dominates the aroma. Semi-crisp carbonation, medium-bodied, with some watery rinds. Faint rye spiciness, oaty, and bready notes. Hints of bubblegum. Sweet cereal grain finish with an oaty linger. The use of flaked oats seems out of place. This beer could use some serious cleaning up.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub in Plano.

The beer pours a slightly dirty, hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a some strong banana notes, as well as some cream and wheat notes. The flavor is very similar. I get some sweet malt and a lot of banana and wheat, a handful of flavors that don’t really go well together. Overall, the beer tastes like a mess. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not good, hopefully the brewery will improve as they get more experience.

16 oz can from Ohio.
Hazy yellow-gold body with an ample, creamy white head.
Light malt aroma withfaint spicing.
Flavorful, fruity and spicy for style but still, of course, mild.
Light but not watery with lively carbonation.

16oz can poured into a pint glass

A- pours a hazy golden yellow color with a small creamy white head that retains nicely after the pour, leaving some lace behind

S- adjunct lager aroma with some toasted grain & oat, light sweetness reminiscent of cream soda

T- light creamy sweetness up front gives way to some toasted grainy flavor, just a hint of earthy hop, more toasted malt on the finish with a slight sweet linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a creamy, almost chewy mouthfeel that continues through to the finish

O- high drinkability on a straight forward cream ale, the oats added a nice mouthfeel

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.
