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...

Big thanks to Bryan for this 12oz can. Looks & smells like good ol’ kolsch. Anticipating thirst quenching brew. Nice head almost goes rocky. Very good sizzly co2. At first comes on with almost too much personality but then the refreshing attitude visits in the middle. Yes, fading annoyances that go completely away in the finish. Pretty good overall beer drinkin’ experience. Good stuff right up to the end.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Nonno Tony’s, Galveston. Clear golden color, small white head. Grainy and a bit fruity. Light-bodied. Grainy, almost cardboardish, subdued fruityness. But actually this is not far from German kölsch. Something rare in USA,

They gave me this for free and it tastes good. Kinda fruity for a kölsch but your girlfriend still loves me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
4 oz. pour, on tap at The Ginger Man in Austin, Texas. Consumed on 11-6-16. Clear, pale golden. Off-white head. Significant effervescence elevates an otherwise underwhelming appearance. Buttery, chardonnay-like, dry, lightly beery aroma. Weak smell. Bland taste. A bit fruity. Mineral or metallic. Perhaps a touch vegetal. Soft in the palate. Light body. Frothier than ideal. Brings little to the table.

Can. Grassy aroma. Light bready malt upfront followed by some balancing bitterness in the finish.

Sampled in a flight with other Texas brews at a local establishment. The appearance is straw yellow with a slight head. Lawnmower definitely seems suited as a spring or summer drink. Very little smell, grassy (fitting don’t you think). The taste is slightly citrus along some hay. Quite light on flavor. Offered one in the future I will drink it.

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.

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.
