(22oz bottle batch 3 August 2010 thanks to Nellie!) clear bright yellow with great lasting film of head and great lacing. Nose of sugar, lemon, corn, very grainy. Taste of grain, sugar, clean cereal, earthy hops with a very creamy finish and nice earthy linger. A really nice lager.

The aroma is light with wheat and light vanilla notes. The light clear straw yellow color has a small lacey head. The flavor is light without much crisp bitterness of hops. It is smooth, but not much flavor overall, more than a normal domestic pilsener obviously.

Bottle from somewhere in Ithaca, NY. Very cool design. Pours a hazy, fizzy golden yellow with a white head. Smell is slightly citrusy, slightly grassy. Very easy to drink, some background hops and a light hop finish. Definitely fizzy though, all the way through.

bottle pours bright yellow and gold with a pillow of a white head. Aroma is floral, honeysuckle and lemon peel with white pepper notes as well. Flavor is delicious, balanced assertive grassy and earthen hops with a nice pal malt and hay body. This is a really nice beer, wish I had more for football season.

When we seek to disparage a beer we often call it lawn mower beer, a category often reserved for insipid American lagers and American wheats. In parody of their own lager, Pretty Things places a lawn mower front and center on the label, but this is no mere lawn mower lager. It is hopped with great intensity, and enjoys a slightly higher alcohol content; i would call this more of an American Pale, even if it does use a lager yeast. It its to lager what Pizza Port’s Panzer is to a traditional pils. Pale gold pour, good head, good lacing. Nose of grass, hops, malt. Taste of hops and malt, with a good finish. Very nice lager, not to be gulped after mowing the lawn.

Poured a yellow with a white head that was short lived but left nice lacing. Aroma was pretty dull. Grassy, some malt, but I struggled to get much out of it. The beer was a good lawnmower beer, light, medium carbonation. A strong pilsner feel from this brew. Grassy, sweet with light malts. Bready at times, but not ever in a heavy way. Good summer brew, but not anything I would reach out for. Overall impression is still strong, just not amazing.
