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.

Appearance is a slightly hazy, golden yellow with a small and quickly receding head. Smell is a light sweetness with some lager yeast fruitiness coming out, fairly solid malt at the end Taste is mild, small spicy and bitter hops with a laid back light malt and 'fresh cut grass' Kölsch notes. Sweet and light enough that one thinks of the corn/rice in a macro, too sweet for the style TBH. Light body, carbonation is a bit high.

Not a bad beer, tastes like a hybrid of an American macro and a Kölsch. What I wish American macros tasted like, very good beer but not the best in the style by a long shot.
