Bottle purchased and drank at Clarence Center Coffee Company in Clarence Center, NY.

Pours a clear gold, with some orange tinges. A small half inch head forms that dissipates quite quickly, leaving behind little splotches of lacing.

Smells slightly weak- a bit of grassy hop aromas, and some grapefruity aromas as well.

This one is pretty tasty, and lives up to its namesake as a lawn mower beer. Slight crackery pilsner malt type flavors, fairly dry, with grassy and herbal hop tastes- almost brings to mind a grassy lawn. Slightly spicy.

Light bodied, crisp and very drinkable- goes down quite easily. A slightly higher than medium amount of carbonation.

Not bad, but slightly boring. A good session ale nonetheless with some definite flavor.

Pours a bright canary yellow. Golden sunshine yellow. Lemon yellow! It's perfectly yellow and hazy with a fat two fingers of cream colored foam that falls lazy and rocky and leaves a thick cap and lace. Nose is lemon and lemon peel. Grapefruit and the pith. A bit of malt sweetness and a sweet grass in the background. some earthy pine but it is terribly light. perfect balance on the nose. The taste is lovely and ultra light. It has only a bit more substance than the session IPA's. But it's there and it is enough to distinguish it. The lemon is bright and sweet, the grapefruit is pungent and earthy. The pine is lightly in the background where I think pine belongs. The malt is just a bit of substance and this finishes a bit crisp and dry with sweet grass to linger and a bit of malt sweetness with all that grapefruit.

Lovely. Another terrific beer from ellicottville. That's three for three that I have tried. I had a hard time rating this. If this is a session IPA then it is in fact, the best one I have tried. if it is a pale ale it is not the best one I have tried. hmmmm.

Poured a hazy straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell and taste featured a grassy hop, lemony ester and light grain.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style with a dry finish.

Overall a uniquely estuary APA.
