COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lawnmower Light 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 - perfect to enjoy after a day in the sun mowing the lawn (or anything else that gets you hot and bothered)!

A crisp American original brewed to 10deg. plato from American 2-row pale malt and 20% corn and expertly balanced with 9 IBU's.

I had no idea it was supposed to be a cream ale. I drank a pint after Iíd drank 8 ounces of Dogfishís barley wine, since I needed something to wash down my burger without putting me over the limit. Iíve never tasted a beer so flavorful with such a low alcohol content. However, that may be like being called the worldís tallest midget.

Review from memory. Summer 2011. My first DFH beer, and first visit to DFH Alehouse. Light in every way. Not unpleasant, and serves its purpose, but nowhere the bold and interesting ales we come to expect from DFH.

This is def. a starter beer, little flavor and pretty watery, not as bad as mass produced but nothing like any other dogfish brew.

"My girlfriend ordered this at the Ale house in Fairfax VA. I had to try a bit and she loves making fun of me as I jot down notes of beers. A - No head, very light pilsner colored beers. Itís just a wattery looking beer like a Coors or Miller High Life with far less carbonation. S - Lots of wheat with some lemon and fresh cut grass. Very summery smell. T - Tastes like a weak hefeweizen but thereís still flavor here..but itís very hard to find. M - Very light beer, no carbonation when swishing it around. O - This isnít a bad beer. DFH took a style of beer that isnít too represented in craft (with good reason) and made it tasty. Iíd drink this over a Budweiser for sure and pick it easily in a blind taste test but itís just not a beer Iíd drink day to day. This beer would go GREAT with burgers and bacon!"

On tap at DFH. Yep, a light beer to please the masses. Was at the brewpub, never had it, so had to try it at least once!

Block (1400) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Definitely one of the lightest beers Iíve had from Dogfish Head. Light color, aroma and flavor. A great beer for the summer and very sessionable. A really good anytime beer.

Pretty much what youíd expect. Actually remind me of a sweaty betty. Grassy flavor, clean and crisp. Good for what it is.

On Tap at the DFH brew pub. Pours pale straw hue with a thin white head. Very fruity, malty aroma has a hint of hops. Light-medium, crisp body. Light, pleasant hops are balanced on the palate by biscuit malt and lemon fruit. Very pleasant, light session beer.

Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
11 Aug 2011, tap at the brewpub. yellow, clear some steady bubbles. smells a bit like a slightly sweet, faintly crisp, hoppy lager. thin/med body, a bit fizzy. slightly heavy if it was meant to be a lager (which itís not). faint toast notes, w/ main flavor of lemon pith, but not much citrus. a sessionable light ale but a bit heavy for a thirst quencher in the summer sun.

Appearance: clear buttery gold, a one-finger white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: sweet cereal grains, hint of grassy, lemony hops. Taste: crisply sweet, very strong notes of cracker and biscuit, with some lightly floral and citrus hops. Finish: short, crisp, clean, with strong malty notes and subtly floral burps for a minute or two. Notes: Doesnít seem like a cream ale at all; much more like a very good premium lager. Whatever it is, itís good. Darn good. On tap at DFH Aleworks in Gaithersburg.
