Brewed by:
Saint Arnold Brewing Company
Texas, United States

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.

5 oz taster

a – slightly grassy but little hop presence. getting phenols. no DMS.

a – light straw. thin white head. no lacing. no haze.

f – pilsner malt with some breadiness balanced by hop bitterness. little hop flavor. getting oxidization.

m – low carbonation. medium body.

o – this may be an older keg due to lack of CO2 and the slight cardboard flavor. based on this sample would probably pass if offered again.

It's very good beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Light golden hue. Rising effervescence is pervasive. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Settles pretty quickly. Slight lacing, mostly retreats into the body of the brew.

S: White bread and hay.

T: Wheat with a bit of a pungent, grainy, tone and just a hint of citrus zest.

M: Light and earthy. Finish of citrus and pepper.

D: Session style.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Fair head and some slight lacing, lots of carbonation. Nose is light and bready with some dried grass or hay. Light hints of wheat, grain, and citrus zest. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.
