This was paired with the first course. It lives up to its billing as an ideal lawn mower/griling beer. Light and refreshing this is the type of beer you could likely share with a friend who isn’t into stouts or more aggressive styles.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden body was typical for a pale ale complete with lively carbonation. The scent of freshly mowed summer grass resonated with the theme of a ’lawn mower beer’ perfectly. It was very light and airy without much complexity.

Flavor / Palate - Fading fast it took a few sips to get a handle on what was going on. When I did I discovered a nice blend of hops and honey. With a mildly bitter finish capping things off the experience was worth visiting again. If you are willing to go outside your local region to find a go-to pale ale this one might be for you.

kieleszd (83) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Cascade hops spritzed in grapefruit. Founders knows how to balance hops and fruit and their Pale Ale is a winner. They call it their lawn-mowing beer but its great company to any dish or a great follow to a rich beer. Hats off.

Strykzone (4832) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Poured a nice cloudy golden hue with some visible yeast floating and nice carbonation. Big light gold head that never went away and left behind a nice lacing. Very nicely hopped. The hops were neither grapefruit or pine but were pleasantly floral. Somewhat one dimensional but still very nice. I don’t care what the Commercial Description says. This is much better than lawn mower beer. Quite nice.

Beerman6686 (4220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Pours a nice amber with a white head. Aroma was nice and hoppy but not in your face. Flavor is of piney hops and nice mellow malts to even things out. Pretty good.
