1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bomber. Wow about the palest pale I ever did see, with a small creamy head. Nose is butter, dried grass, light citrus, and touches of honey-coated corn. Initial taste is buttered popcorn and a hint of shrimp. Later tastes of honey, butter, and dried lemon grass. Light body is drinkable and a tad bit astringent. Several folks in my area really have been arrested for DUI on a lawnmower this summer, but I sure couldnít recommend this one to them over a Duff beer. I donít struggle through many beers, but this one really tested my limits.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells of a sweetness and nuts. Thin mouthfeel. No hops really present. Very drinkable, might get too sweet after awhile though. Tastes how it smells.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, purchased at Harry and Davidís Medford. Pours a clear, pale straw color; effervescent; small-bubbled white head with decent retention and lacing, glistening. A lightly honeyed malt character in the nose, with a moderate grassy and mineral hop character; nicely balanced and crisp; clean fermentation; a pretty engaging, solid expression of its ingredients. Medium-light body; lively carbonation; just a touch of a carbonic bite; very engaging, hugely drinkable feel in the mouth; possible hints of appropriately placed DMS/acetaldehyde notes, but very light; modest, crisp, toasty maltiness (lightly honeyed, light sugar), along with that grassy, mineral hop note; relatively clean, quite enjoyable pale lager; hugely drinkable and that grassiness almost suggests dry-hopping. Nicely toasty, dry finish: crisp, very toasty, very mild mineral bitterness at the far end.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap, came out hazy pale yellow with no head, aroma is sweet with a little yeast ester, flavor is just the same. This beer went down easy until about the halfway mark when it started to warm up, the slight sweetness started to overpower the palate was all wrong on this beer too, too lingering of a finish with weird grassy (maybe just the name messing with me?) after tastes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well, Iím not really sure what the goal was here. Oh sure, the label says itís for washing the dirt out of your mouth after mowing the lawn, and it is called "Lawnmower Lager"...Ok, I Do see what the goal was, but I guess I donít understand why one would have that goal. Sure, its kinda refreshing and inoffensive, but very light on any flavor or aroma. Still donít understand why...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle. Rating #12. Very pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Bready aroma and not much else. Light sweetness, pretzel dough and pale malt, interesting, but a little too light for my tastes. (1299)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A super light session beer in a bomber? Thatís sure to raise the hackles of the barrel aged crowd. This is as advertised. Straightforward and very light. Almost to the point of too much watery texture at the end. Could be a touch crisper too but beyond those niggly points, this is a refreshing beer with mild sweetness and a nice amount of carbonation. The hazy super light yellow color is a trip too.
