Beer Review: Caldera Brewing Lawnmower Lager

"Lawnmower Lager: 3.9% abv American Light Lager brewed with flaked barley and flaked rice. This lager is clean and easy!"


Appearance: (3.5)
- Nice clear straw yellow lager, rather bubbly. Finger of white foaming head quickly dissipated to a thin spotty layer over the brew. Not bad. 

Smell: (3.5)
-  Does seem to have a nice creamy biscuity malt flavor. Nice pine and grassy hops are certainly present. This smells like a full on 6% abv lager. Liking the grainy notes.

Taste: (3.0)
-  This is a simple grainy and somewhat bready lager. It's light, grassy, with a slight lager tart finish. It's simple, solid, and has the nice flavor of a heavier abv beer. Really not bad.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
-This has an initial dry approach, hits slightly chewy in the middle, and finishes tart which makes the mouth water. It's a light bodied beer, and drinks very well..  well carbonated. 

Overall: (3.5)
- This is a solid session beer. I won't get geeky and say you can never chill a beer to fridge temps, but this is nice rather cold. Refreshing for an early day beer. Worth the try!

  1. Agree with your review. I wasn't thoughly impressed with Lawnmower. Expected something better coming from Caldera. Everyone has a different palate though. Nice critique.

  2. Thanks! I find the brewery to be inconsistent at times. I am sure this puppy is better on tap right at the source.
