1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I think they hit a skunk with the lawnmower! Horrible aroma... ’Peeeuusa!’ in the words of my least favorite Star Wars character. The beer is pretty as it has an extremely clear and extremely light golden color. But don’t judge a book by its cover ya know. And that holds true here. I am quite impressed by this beer...not in its good flavor, but in the fact that somebody must have been pretty slick to get this nasty brew past Saint Arnold’s quality control. The name ’Fancy Lawnmower’ is pretty strange...but they could have been more true to the flavor and used ’Sweet and Sour Skunk’ At least the name would have made sense after your first sip. I can only hope that I got on old, bad batch...because in general, I like Saint Arnold. Well...I guess I have ranted enough... Gotta go pour the rest of this down the sink...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Ginger Man, Austin, TX, 25.4.2016. Clear gold with a white head. Crisp and malty aroma, grainy and on the sweeter side of things. Hardly any hops. Light-to-medium body, the slightest bitter finish but mostly grainy notes. Simple, refreshing, more blond ale than kolsch but still nice.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Golden. Aroma of grains, hay, some grassy hops. Rather dry flavor, with some graininess, slightly sweetish bready malt, and decent bitterish crisp grassy hops. Rather light-bodied. Decent and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewery. Straw colour, thin head. Has a slight herbal hop note, light grainy note, sweet and just a touch of bitterness. Good for what it is, heck you could argue almost a kolsch.
