COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true German-style Kölsch. Originally brewed in Cologne, this beer is crisp and refreshing, yet has a sweet malty body that is balanced by a complex, citrus hop character. Multiple additions of German Hallertauer hops are used to achieve this delicate flavor. We use a special Kölsch yeast, an ale yeast that ferments at lager temperatures, to yield the slightly fruity, clean flavor of this beer. Fancy Lawnmower Beer is a world class brew yet light enough to be enjoyed by Texans after strenuous activities, like mowing the lawn.

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...

Bottle. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, grains and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more citrus, malts and grains. Decent.

kerenmk (4092) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 2, 2016
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.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 26, 2016
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.
