look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, clear, gold in color

Smell: toasted malt, light wheat, and melon

Taste: big sweet watermelon, some rind, some toasted malt, and sugar

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness, light body, high carbonation

Overall: If you like the other fruit beers from Shipyard, this one should not disappoint. I find this way better than the pumpkin, but not as good as the apple as the melon here is sweet but not overpowering. If I am going for a watermelon beer, it will still be 21st Ammendment's but this one is a solid beer for a summer's day.
