Welcome to the backyard with the sun high in the sky, the grass freshly cut, and the aroma of hot coals and steak as you relax in your lawn chair. This is your safeguard, the backyard.

Pint can: Pours slightly cloudy gold with a tall, craggy , off-white head. Scent is almost non-existent.....a little grass, a bit of malt and grain. Taste is......well....like soap-rinsed-grain. Rather metallic.....not enjoyable at all.

Can. Metallic grainy malt aroma. Hazy golden with a medium soapy off-white head. Just like is smells, metallic grainy malt flavor and a little grassy hops. LIght carbonated body. Blech.

I bought a single can of this pale ale on a whim because of the name. It turned out to be not quite as good as I had hoped, having a sweet citrus taste but not much hops or overall balance and character.

Bottle. Light malt and citrus hops aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Stale barley malt and light citrus hops flavor. An ale that tastes like a pale lager.

16oz can from Armanetti’s. Pours a cloudy, orange-yellow colored body with a finger-width, foamy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is sweet pale malts, grain, and a touch of caramel with a very light floral and grass. Flavor is similar. Sweet pale malts up front with some grainy bread and a light caramel. A light grass and some floral fruits before this finishes a bit cloyingly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Short aftertaste following a light body and a medium-light, bubbly carbonation. Overall, a pretty weak APA. Not out of balance, but a bit cloying in the finish with barely enough of a hopping. Eh...

16oz can 11/10/11 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-46° in Lager Glass-Pours a slightly hazy orangish golden with a two finger white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and malt. Taste of hops, malt, citus, grass, and grains. This medium bodied brew is not bad. I was expecting worse but a rather hot summer kinda day brew.

Can. Pours an ever so slightly hazed golden color with a white head that quickly settles. Bubblegum and banana in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet start with notes of a slight fruitiness. Really no hop presence to speak of. More sweet than anything. Not that good.

16 oz. can. Color is a hazy yellow amber with a thin foamy white head. Sweet malt and grain aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is slightly sweet malt with a bit of citrus and grassy hops. Light carbonation and light to medium bodied. Won’t win many awards but not a bad beer really.

16oz tallboy can poured into a pint glass. Pours hazy/murky yellow. Smells more malty than hoppy even though hops are plastered on the can’s graphics. Tasted slightly metallic and oddly carbonated. This one wasn’t good at all..

Pours an extremely cloudy yellow. Aroma is of light citrus and grass. Slight hops and malt on the palate. This hides the increased alcohol content well. Very smooth going down, and very refreshing. This was made to be a "lawn mowing beer" and it does not disappoint. HOWEVER, this is grossly overpriced. I paid $5.99 for a 4 pack of pints. Indefensible!
