Pours a light hazy gold, over an inch of white fluffy head dissipates slowly.
Smells of grassy barley malts with a light citrus and mild semi-sweet fruitiness.
Tastes of mild grassy malts, light citrus, and a melon sweetness. A little white grape as well.
Light to medium body with a soft carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
A nice light session-candidate wheat ale, great summer beer, goes down easy, good flavor balance, surprisingly good body. Unless you object to the melon element, this is hard to knock. Not a superstar beer, but well worth trying.

(Served in a flute)
A- This beer pours a hazy hint of the lemon yellow body with a thin snow white film supported by a sluggish big carbonation.
S- The clean aroma has a light corn chip hint as it warms.
T- The clean light lagered field corn note leads to a green biter note that lingers. There is a watermelon rind hint that leads to a jolly rancher flavor comes through in the finish.
M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp little fizz in the finish.
O- This beer has an interesting watermelon note but it is a bit harsh in the bitterness in the finish without other flavors to support or cut it.

3.4/5 rDev +9.7%
12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present, perhaps some sort of code on the bottleneck. My second beer from Horny Goat Brewing Co., and my first encounter with a watermelon beer. My bottle lists a 5.60% abv.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a hazed orange colored body, not unlike that of an IPA or a pale ale. About a finger of frothy white head that recedes fairly quick. Some okay spotty lacing.
S - The smell is hardly comprised of anything at all - some clean cut wheat, grass, & grains and a mild fruity berry sort of presence,
T - Taste follows the nose - there is a noticeable fruity / vegetal sort of presence, but nothing that distinctly screams watermelon, but I'm guessing it isn't the easiest flavor to impart in a beer in the first place. Wheaty, grainy, grassy, with some berry-like fruitiness present. Mild yeast presence is noted.
M - The feel is crisp and clean. Semi-dry & grainy finish. Medium bodied with good adequate carbonation. Easy drinking stuff.
Overall, an interesting first attempt at trying a watermelon beer, but I could see bigger and better craft breweries like Pipeworks taking things a step or three further than this. A drinkable effort, but probably not something I'd go for again.
