COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cream Ale is a style that is is under-appreciated by most of the craft beer world, we want to change that. Lawn Ranger is session ale with a solid malt character from the US 2-row, Rye, and Flaked Oats. Rye and Oats are not typical ingredients for a cream ale but they allow us to keep the alcohol low and still provide a some body to the beer. We use a minimal blend of Apollo and Bravo hops to balance the malts and German Alt yeast. This is the one to drink during the Texas summers or when you want to have more than a couple.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Can:   Yellow hued straw, pale haze, light carbonation, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Oats on the nose, subtle rye, a little sweaty.   Brighter on the tongue than the nose suggested.   Pale straw, semi-sweet, oats, sweet grass.   Expected it to be mealy but its not.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Feels spritzy as well.   Soft dough and bready finish, oats, very mild oat like sweetness.   Decent.   Expected it to be a bit more mealy/bready for a cream ale, but actually thankful its not.   Thanks Bill!

16oz can 11/6/13 (Whole Foods-Lamar) Pours a murky orangish amber with no head. Aroma of citrus. Taste of citrus. This light bodied New is moot what I was expecting nut still rather tasty.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow-gold color with a thin creamy white head that diminishes quickly to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt and mild grassy hops. The finish grainy with a mild hoppy aftertaste. Average overall.

mmmbeer (1242) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2013
16 oz. can poured in shaker- poured mostly transparent with a hint of murkiness dulled yellow color, medium carbonation, 2 finger head bubbly head quickly disappeared within a matter of two minutes. Aroma of musky wheat and dirt. Hits the mouth with light medium body, malt is drowned in the texture of a crude creamy sweetness, middle holds up well, finish has an odd bread like consistancy. Not impressed lately, and this brew doesn’t help with the attitude.

BigHoss (172) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2013
From a can, pours a yellow color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. I smell malt, some yeast and light citrus. I taste a smooth creamy light citrus and grains. Very refreshing. Not bad at all:)

Caytinator (943) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pint on tap. Light straw color, no head or lacing. Pleasant light aroma, faint grains present. Such a light taste, just a tad watery. Nice aftertaste, light bitterness, it grows on you. Good qualities for the style overall, quit hating on cream ales!

kidmartinek (3655) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Pours glassy yellow with no head leftover. Sweeter... grainy malt. Premium lager pedigree. Out of desire. Too much grainy maltiness.

Had this on tap at Whole Foods.... wow. Just terrible. Two others tried it after me... it was not liked at all by either.

high_on_hops (623) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Pours a hazy gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a light aroma of pale malt and a bit of yeast, and the flavor is light malt throughout with a crisp finish over a slightly fizzy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
