BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States
saintarnold.com

Style: German Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A true German-style Kölsch. Originally brewed in Cologne, this beer is crisp and refreshing, yet has a sweet malty body that is balanced by a complex, citrus hop character. Multiple additions of German Hallertauer hops are used to achieve this delicate flavor. We use a special Kölsch yeast, an ale yeast that ferments at lager temperatures, to yield the slightly fruity, clean flavor of this beer. Fancy Lawnmower Beer is a world class brew yet light enough to be enjoyed by Texans after strenuous activities, like mowing the lawn.

On tap at the brewery. Golden color with lots of small bubbles. Smells of straw and floral hops. Medium body. Taste has some grassy sweetness mixed with floral character. Crisp finish. Great example of the style.

Full bodied and malty like all Saint Arnold, without sacrificing smoothness you expect from Kölsch style. Great beer. One of my favorites and always my DOC at Astros games. Compliments hot weather perfectly

A perfect example of a Kolsch style beer. Maybe just a bit light on hops, but, then, I really like hoppy style beers. Perhaps just a nudge too much like a basic lager; i.e. a tiny bit too much down the middle of the road. But, in terms of the classic Koln beer, this is right on the money.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is faint citrus hops. The taste is a refreshing light hop experience.

Look pale gold
Smell sweet malt
Taste is slightly sweet malt and slightly bitter.
Proper feel for this style...easy drinking.
Overall it's good and certainly better than the big name macro lagers.

Clear golden with effervescence cascading upward. Over one inch head with staying power. Fresh clean smell. Bracing taste with sour and slight hop bitterness. Finishes crisp with floral overtones that are refreshing. Very well balanced taste leaving one wanting more. However taste dissipates quickly leaving somewhat of a bland drink. Mouth feel smooth and light. Refreshing for a quick one.
