COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A kolsch-style ale. When you need a beer after mowing the lawn, don't drink one of the mass produced beers, reach for this "fancy" lawnmower beer.

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...

This was a poor attempt to make a craft beer it was so light and watered down that it might as well be a natural light with extra hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (8462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pour on tap at Black Bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, bread, biscuit, some yeast into a bit of slight grass, touch of earth, slight fruity note into a bit of spice. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, spice, some yeast into a bit of earth, grain, slight biscuit, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet.

A light grassy aroma. Pours a clear golden yellow. Leaves a thin head and minimal lacing around the glass. Has a malty flavor up front with a light hop dry bitterness in the end. Not bad.

KyotoLefty (7232) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 2, 2015
Tap at Camba. Deep blond, clear, with a low, fine head. Clean malt nose, a bit of grass and citra. Light malt flavor, citrusy hops. Light and crisp, a proper kolsch but none too exciting.

BVery (7597) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Tap at Yard House. Not sure this deserves the level of hate it’s getting. Pale slightly hazy yellow pour with a white head. Clean grassy Kolsch with a bit of lager notes. Not excellent, but certainly drinkable.
