First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Poured a golden-straw color with a slight hazy, and a small white head that receded to a ringlet. Aroma of toasted grains and watermelon. Basically the same in the taste, light toasted grains, sweet watermelon that sit on the almost indistinguishable line between real melon and Jolly Rancher, slightly bitter in the finish from a crisp leafy hop contribution. Not bad for what it's worth, and a nice summer beer for sure. But I must say as far as watermelon beers go, I'll stick with 21st Amendment's wheat beer.

Not enough Watermelon, infact if the name didn't say that it was a watermelon lager that I wouldn't have even noticed. Kinda hoped that it would have been a bit more flavorful and wasn't. The beer was a clear yellow lager with a white head. Not a whole lot else in this really. It's a decent brew for summer time but I don't know if I'd seek it out again.

Got a growler of this stuff from Capone's, I had it last year at the Summer Ale Festival at the Phila. Zoo and remember liking it - I wanted to get a growler of something nice, simple, and refreshing to keep me cool on these sweltering Philly days. It's doing its job might I add. Pours a clear golden yellow, very similar to a generic American lager. 1/2" of off-white foam head that subsides quickly. Simple aroma - mild grain and hops, and just a pinch of watermelon. Same goes for the flavor. Very refreshing stuff - and incredibly drinkable - very light in flavor, body, and ABV. Nice stuff.

Originaly Reviewed on: 07-24-2009

A - Coppery tones with light head from ample carbonation.

S - Mild scent of watermellon. Almost if you just smelled the watery juices from the fruit as opposed to the whole fruit itself.

T - Suprisingly natural like watermellon taste. As with the scent, the flavor is more watermellon watery juices then the whole fruit. Not much else going on because of its light lager style.

M - Light bodied like a light lager should be. Decent carbonation, like a fruit beer should have.

D - Interesting, light and refreshing. Not very complex, but decent.

From notes. On tap at Capones...
Appears a hazy, viscous pink with a small, white head that slowly fades. Scattered spots of milkshake-like lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of watermelon up front with watermelon rinds, and sugary watermelon Jolly Rancher candies pulling through.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas in a deliciously, fruity flavor that is in no way offensive, or overbearing.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, juicy, sugary, mildly bitter. This would go great with garlic bread to balance out the pungent flavors of the garlic.

Its a Watermelon beer--don't drink it if you don't like Watermelon.

Essentially a blonde with lotsa whole pieces of melon added. Color is made a bit pinkish and head retention is minimal. Some Jolly Rancher goodness going on in the nose. Biscuity flavor with watermelon sweetness and some bite coming assumingly from the rind. A good summer session beer.
