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.

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.

12oz bottle, tulip, bottled 10/10/17.

Crystal clear golden beer with a rapidly vanishing white head.

Sweet, crisp pale malt in the nose and flavor. There's no hop aroma to speak of, just a little leafy green hop flavor. It seems like a particularly malty Budweiser with a little extra hop bitterness. I do certainly get a bit of the vinous quality noted in the style description.

The body is heavy and, while the bubbles try to counter it, it's too thick.

If you've read this far, I'm sure you can tell I'm not crazy about this beer. It is to style and I would be hard pressed to say anything is wrong with it other than it's a bit sweet. It's simply not my cup of tea (beer).

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.

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
