Possibly my favorite session beer so far. Time to review the Fancy Lawnmower!

A: Light gold, good clarity, so-so head fades quickly leaving very little lace.

S: Instant you crack open the bottle you can smell grass, pine needles, summer day. Nice strong scent reminiscent of the name. More scent packed in this mild drinkable beer than many IPAs I've had, but it works.

T: Follows the smell, but much more mildly, and with a nice touch of both malt sweetness and hoppy bitterness in the middle. Would like the flavor to be just a TOUCH more assertive, but all in all, very drinkable and balanced with just the right hint of complexity to intrigue the palate without powering too far over the obvious goals of the brew.

M: Moderate to high carbonation, very light and with a hint of dryness. Very drinkable. I could pour another as I write...

I'll be buying many more cases of these. One of the more enjoyable beers I've had, although better in the summer than in the wintertime. Fortunately, in the brewery's home city, Houston, it's essentially summer most of the year...

Appearance- Clear straw colored. Thick, stark white head. Bits of spider web lacing left behind. 3.5/5

Smell- Crisp hop aroma and very small malt smell. 3.5/5

Taste- Very balanced. I can't decide if the hops are more of a flavor or not. Throughout the sip there are crisp, slightly grassy hops and some sweet malt to back it up. Small amount of bitterness right in the middle. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel- Better than some, but still what you would expect from the style. 3.5/5

Overall- Good, easy drinking beer. 3.5/5
