Notes / Commercial Description:
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…

Poured this into a wheat beer glass and it poured a golden opaque color with a lot of head.it has a light push up pop smell and it tastes like a light table beer. It's an easy drinker with a light hay like taste so it's similar to jk noble king but much more lighter. Overall I'd drink this on a hot summer day after a full day of biking cause of its style.

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.

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.

On tap at 3rd Floor (Houston, TX), poured into a stemmed Pilsener glass. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a frothy white head. Lightly malty, grassy, slight yeast fruit and spice. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body and creamy carbonation. Easy to drink with some nice grain bill flavors.

Pour is transparent yellow with a tight creamy off white head. Nose is strong grain, a bit stale and very grassy. Taste is a bit more palatable. The grain is strong, some creamy vanilla notes and grassy herbal hops in back. Lighter body with strong carbonation and a soft clean feel.

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
