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...

Light gold pour, decent white head. Nose is lightly kilned malt. Little more bitter than sweet. Middle is bread, soft fruit, sweet malt body. Hop bitterness peaks at the end, but only briefly. Good summer beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. Pours clear golden with a ring and a spot of bubbles. Aroma is honey, dry grass, maybe a touch of lemon. Tastes of stale apple, lemon-honey candy with a touch of mint, dried grass and light booze. Light-medium bodied with a medium carbonation and to the sweet side. Surprised to see this was supposed to be a kolsch.

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.
