BEER INFO

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

Style: 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.

A thin, white head lingers on this brew. The dark amber color is pleasing and there is a slight herbal fragrance. This brew is deceptively simple and easy to drink, but is actually wonderfully nuanced. Overall, there is a pilsner like bitternes, which is nicely balenced by the floral kolsch malt. Nothing over-dramatic here, just great beer

Was there ever a warm southern day you couldn't enjoy the feel of a ice cold lawnmower going down? That's the way I feel about it too...

Great for a hot summer day, this has become one of my favorites. After all it's usually warm in Texas. Very smooth a bit citrusy. Definitely recommend if you can get your hands on it.

Lawnmower at the brewery is so much better! Funny random and light lacing and a tiny reticient head. Nice, smoothed out grassy tones with a bit of lemon(grass?) and a touch of wheat. Nice yellow gold color and just a higher quality more refined ale than when you have it out of the bottle. Lawnmower is one of my least favorite 6 packs to buy but is absolutely among their best ales at the brewery. Age might have something to do with that. Smooth, refreshingly medium carbonated, and wet mouth feel. Nice one.
