Saint Arnold has done it again. They don't mess around when they make a light beer. See Also: Fancy Lawnmower, Weedwacker, Spring Bock. These are all very solid beers which you could hand to a BMC drinker and blow his mind without blowing out his tastebuds.

A: Pure, translucent gold with a solid two-finger head which lingers leaving lacing on the side. Lots of carbonation bubbling up within.

S: Grass! Nice, strong smell of freshly mowed lawn coming off this one. Fantastic for a summer day. Not too complex, but you didn't buy this for a rich feast, did you?

T: Mild, clean gold malt and basic hop bitterness. It's just a simple, clean, well-executed brew--nothing fancy, but very drinkable.

M: Watery and well-carbonated, as you'd expect from the appearance. Clearly a session beer--you can down these fast and easy.

The taste and mouthfeel in this brew are going to seem a bit weak to hopheads and craft beer enthusiasts, but they're cleanly done and come through exactly as intended, with no off-flavors or skunkiness. Pleasant to knock back a couple of these after working in the yard on a summer day.

This has been my favorite daily drinker for a month now although I can only find it in one store here in Baton Rouge. It's a very easy drinker.

Appearance is a little cloudy with head that fades away very quickly.

Smell is very grassy and has that sort of "funk" smell I've come to expect from Saint Arnold products. It's a good quality although I can think of no other word to describe it.

Taste is fantastic. nice malt, lots of grass, very clean.

Mouthfeel is a nice little bite on the tongue. Good body that feels as good as it tastes.

Overall I love this beer. I wish it was available in more stores in Baton Rouge.
