lawnmower beer
 n.— «Summer may be the best time to eschew the exotic and just go for a simple “lawnmower beer”—something to chug after a sweaty session of yard work (Delaware’s Dogfish Head Craft Brewery makes a draft-only “Lawnmower Light”).» —“Wheat beer: A light brew for warmer days” by Bob Batz Jr. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pennsylvania) May 18, 2006.
