Appearance is a cloudy light pink color with a small head
Aroma is faint grain and watermelon. Has a watered down smell.
Taste is the same. You get the watermelon but its in the background.
It tastes like drinking watered down watermelon juice.
Mouthfeel is medium with no great lingering flavors.
Not complex, not even really that good but I'm glad I tried it.

12 oz can poured hazy copper-amber with a sizable bubbly head.

Light body with mid - high carbonation.

Mild but appealing aroma is bready with a hint of fruit.

Little flavor; mostly simple light baked grain but some watermelon too.

O: No serious flaws but still a disappointing, overly mild wheat beer.

(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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
