Bottle dated 3-21-17. Ouch. Nonic pint.

A: pours a hazed yellow-gold with two and a half fingers of fluffy bright white head. Lots of small particulate matter suspended in the beer with a few streams of carbonation flowing up. Pretty decent lacing.

S: very modern hoppy: citrusy, tropical, sweet, tart. Some malt presence lurking behind there. A very tangy citrus - candy like.

T: drier arrival than the nose would suggest, modestly hoppy, some of that tangy hoppiness, then it transitions to a light and satisfying malt, some herbaceous, stemmy, green and floral hops, before ending on a way less bitter finish than the nose portends.

M: solidly midweight with moderate to low carbonation. What bubbles there are feel large on the tongue. Somewhat slick.

O: this is not as light or as crisp as I would like for a true lawnmower beer. But it is a pretty balanced new age American pale ale. Or perhaps golden ale. I'll say it's held up remarkably well for six months old; I can only imagine what that tropical citrus was like new.

I bought this to enjoy after mowing the lawn, and it proved to be light and easy drinking for the occasion. My notes are limited, but it pours an ugly yellow, with limited hops aroma and flavor. Too thin for most occasions, good hops taste, earthy, just could use a higher gravity and an ounce or two more hops.

Bottle from Wegmans. I like this. A tasty ale without the hop bitterness of an IPA. Just enough hoppiness to enjoy and refresh. Nice grassy aroma...me likey!

Bottle purchased and drank at Clarence Center Coffee Company in Clarence Center, NY.

Pours a clear gold, with some orange tinges. A small half inch head forms that dissipates quite quickly, leaving behind little splotches of lacing.

Smells slightly weak- a bit of grassy hop aromas, and some grapefruity aromas as well.

This one is pretty tasty, and lives up to its namesake as a lawn mower beer. Slight crackery pilsner malt type flavors, fairly dry, with grassy and herbal hop tastes- almost brings to mind a grassy lawn. Slightly spicy.

Light bodied, crisp and very drinkable- goes down quite easily. A slightly higher than medium amount of carbonation.

Not bad, but slightly boring. A good session ale nonetheless with some definite flavor.
