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.

Poured nicely, great big white head. Only a little lacing left. Very clear/light golden appearance. Light malt and hop flavor with only a mild amount of carbonation. Slightly watered down feeling in my mouth though.

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...

A nice easy drinker with a good balance of light citrus - orange, melon - crackery malt and subtle wheat. Faint bitterness is preceded by a bread/yeast flavor that ends crisp. A beer that's at its best ice cold on a hot day. Not gonna wow you but it'll satisfy.
