Unfiltered, yeast floats in the brew.

I decided to re-review this beer. I have a couple of fresh ones in my fridge from a trade. I talked to the brewer that I had met during my tour of the brewery and he said this beer took the gold at the GABF.

I said fuck it, I will re-review it.

Kolsch beers are decent lawnmower beers, but not a style I really appreciate. However, I've had a few know and I can appreciate a good one.

Repoured into traditional pint glass. Decent head with great retention. Cloudy yellow color

Smell is bready and citrusy. Sweet malt comes out on the palate. One fault some people find with these beers is that they are sweet. I like that they tend to have thick malts though.

Let this beer warm. This beer has off flavors until it warms. Once at about 48 degrees it has superb flavor. It has a citrus twang with a nice breadiness. This is truly a good lawnmower beer. It tastes better than what I had last year. The malts are thicker than most kolsches and it helps to balance the dryness. Nicely balanced.

This will be a beer that's in my fridge during the summer. Give it a try. It clings to the mouth very well and doesn't have an overbearing dryness like some kolsches.

I could make a session out of this easily.

Saint Arnold Fancy Lawnmower - 6 pack bought at local Walmart, 12/04/2013 date on bottle

I had never had anything from Saint Arnold before this. I had heard of them and was aware they are a local Houston brewery, but decided to try them out. There were a couple of offerings on the shelves but I chose this one because I am a fan of the style (Kolsch beers are popular in Texas).

Appearance - Light gold to clear yellow when poured into a glass. The first one I drank out of the bottle, but then I decided to pour one just to see. There is a very small white head, maybe an inch. But it doesn't last long and there is no lacing.

Smell - Smells like an average Adjunct Lager but with a little more hops and slight grassy smell.

Taste - Slightly sweet, mild hops and comfortable malt flavoring. Very dry, almost too dry. This is just a notch above AAL style beers in overall flavor profile. But what is there is perfect for the style. Nice flavor without being over powering or tough to drink. This is perfect beer for drinking after working in the yard.

Mouthfeel - Thin but not watery. Lightly carbonated.

Overall - This is a fantastic representation of the style. Most craft drinkers and beer snobs will not fully appreciate this beer. But this is fantastic for hot summer days at a barbeque.

The price of this beer is too high for my regular purchase ($8 a six pack). But I will definitely drink this again. Especially as the weather warms up.

This is an excellent beer from the great state of Texas!

appearance: Poured a pale gold colour into a pint glass with a 2 inch head. great lacing the entire beer.

smell: Smelled very pleasant, fruity and grassy hop character. Underlying grapefruit note

taste: Very fresh light malt character, with a good hop bite. Very clean, yet great hop flavor that makes this very refreshing !

excellent beer! Great for summer!
