Lawnmower Lager, Baderbrau, Chicago, US
Jason Baldacci, writing at the Chicagoist.com, reviewed the newest release from Baderbrau which he said was their “most hop-forward brew yet.”
He said: “We caught a burst of citrus on the nose along with a nice whiff of floral perfume. On the palate, those citrus notes really pop in the form of juicy naval orange and lemon peel, but we also picked up a touch of bitter lemongrass which we found extremely pleasant, and those floral tones really linger on the backend. There’s a hint of biscuity malt to lend a backbone and a bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel, but overall this beer is bright, brisk and pretty vibrant. At 5.5% abv, Lawnmower Lager might be a bit stronger than it needs to be but we’re not complaining, especially if we’re drinking it after a day of manual labor.
“Lawnmower Beer” is a term that craft beer drinkers usually use to describe something light, yellow and fizzy. It typically refers to something that’s easy to drink or brainless to consume, a beer that you’d drink if you were out in the sun all day and found yourself in need of something quenching.”
