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…

16 oz. can poured into tall mug

L: yellow ... very clear, just a hint of mistiness in it; over multiple pourings, the nice white head of foam that pops up can be almost whatever you want it -- on this regular pour, the head rose about 1/3 to almost 1/2 inch and is not sticking much

S: creamed corn ... lots of grain; subtle, light sweetness

T: everything is subtle here, so it's hard to pull out exactly what I'm tasting -- it boils down to a light, sweet barley with some grain (corn) and no bitterness whatsoever. there is a creamed corn taste at times, but again it's very, very subtle

F: as drinkable as anything I've had without being watery ... it *is* light

O: it's not perfect, but, man ... if you want "just a beer" without any bells and whistles, this sucker is fantastic. just enough sweetness from the malt to be tasty with no hop profile at all -- no bitterness, spiciness, nothing. there is a pinch of grain in there that's mostly corn and at times creamed corn, but it never gets that sour taste some brews have when creamed corn comes to mind.

what makes this a "cream ale"? i have no idea, but i can see why so many people are loving this brew. it's simple, easy-drinking and good.

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.
