COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cream Ale is a style that is is under-appreciated by most of the craft beer world, we want to change that. Lawn Ranger is session ale with a solid malt character from the US 2-row, Rye, and Flaked Oats. Rye and Oats are not typical ingredients for a cream ale but they allow us to keep the alcohol low and still provide a some body to the beer. We use a minimal blend of Apollo and Bravo hops to balance the malts and German Alt yeast. This is the one to drink during the Texas summers or when you want to have more than a couple.

Cedar Creek. Apollo and Bravo. It works. They dialed it down from the EPH, and it’s a great beer at a great price.

From a bottle at a hotel bar in Atlanta. Really good cream ale, on par with the best rich, creamy, yet crisp and clear. Well crafted.

Pint on tap. Light straw color, no head or lacing. Pleasant light aroma, faint grains present. Such a light taste, just a tad watery. Nice aftertaste, light bitterness, it grows on you. Good qualities for the style overall, quit hating on cream ales!

Light gold, good slightly off-white head. Mine was quite cloudy and had a nicely thick palate. A decent bit going on with this beer made it fun to drink.

Pours a hazy golden straw color. Some pretty good sized sediment in there, not a lot. Pours with a very pillowy head, about two fingers or more. Eggshell colored. Good retention, pretty good lacing.

Aroma isn’t very strong, but wow! It’s sweet, oatey. Smells like a cream soda. Touch of buttered bread. Malty, maybe a smidge of grassy hops.

Taste is sweet, mellow, not bitter at all. Malty, buttery. A very light touch of rye spiciness. Very smooth.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Very smooth, velvety. A touch of bitterness in the throat. Man, this goes down easy.

Overall, this is good. Most cream ales seem to be lacking in flavor, and well, everything. But this is good all around. Sure, the style may be mild, but this is edgy if you will, and pushes things beyond mild. Yes, I’d drink this again, and I would buy it again. I would recommend this, it’s good.

Though by their own admission is not exactly to style it does fulfill their purpose. Very drinkable lawnmower beer with more body and a good hop malt balance yet malt forward. The rye is apparent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is transparent yellow with a tight creamy off white head. Nose is strong grain, a bit stale and very grassy. Taste is a bit more palatable. The grain is strong, some creamy vanilla notes and grassy herbal hops in back. Lighter body with strong carbonation and a soft clean feel.

Can at The Porter Beer Bar. Pours hazy yellow with a large, creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is grainy Pils malt, fairly clean with light earthy hops. Flavor is creamy Pils malt, light earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
