Notes / Commercial Description:
Lawnmower is our intro for those who need a little help jumping feet first into the crazy world that is Dogfish Head beer.

It's a starter beer, but it's not dumbed down. Lawnmower is made with quality ingredients and is a great thirst quencher. It's perfect to enjoy after a day in the sun mowing the lawn (or anything else that gets you hot and bothered)!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

On draft at DFH Brewing and Eats in Rehoboth Beach.

Thin trace white head, clear yellow body.

Faintly grainy nose.

Cereal grains dominate the taste: light pilsnery, a bit of corn.

Mouthfeel is refreshing but a bit too prickly.

It's a lawnmower beer. What did I expect?

served in a pint glass at the brewpub in Rehoboth Beach.

appears a pale yellow in color, with just thin whisps of head. clean aroma so mild pale malt, grassy hops. crisp taste, easy to drink. thin body, higher carbonation. fits the description - a refreshing, thirst-quenching beer for the riding the Lawnmower. But it's only available on tap. They should can it!

On-tap at the DFH Brewpub as part of a flight.

Poured a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Crisp aromas of sweet, lightly toasted malt and grassy hops. Taste follows the nose closely, light, sweet, and a bit grassy. Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp with a light body and good carbonation. Overall a solid, easy-drinking beer that would be very refreshing on a hot day!
