For the light session lager that Lawnmower aspires to, it's not at all bad. The beer is clear straw yellow - exceptionally pale - and comes with a brilliant white head on exuberant carbonation. Balanced contours give no undue pull towards the bitter or the sweet. Instead, a repectable cleanliness hinges on a punky, marshmallow resolve. The cereal toast or hop spice I might have hoped for is absent, but the clean finish with smart bittering seals the deal.

Had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the Big E Brewery.

Appearance: pale yellow-straw hue with a thin finger of creamy white foam. There is only the tiniest touch of haze. Looks good for the style.

Smell: very light, clean malty and grainy aroma. A bit mild.

Taste: grainy malt flavor with a clean yeastiness. Actually quite a tasty little lager. Hops are minimal and bitterness is low but balanced.

Mouthfeel: light body with a moderate but interesting carbonation. Decent.

Overall: a light and simple but decent and entirely refreshing lager. I like it -- bonus points for drinkability.

Well, not much to say except that this basically an average example of it's style. It poured a very clear and clean bright yellow color with no head. The aroma was slightly grain scented, otherwise neutral. That description also applies to the flavor. The body was pleasantly full and drinkability was very nice. I could drink a growler at the beach, river or park. Try it if you see it.
