Poured on-tap and served in a stemmed vase, the beer is a slightly hazed, copper gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation and a frothy, bright white head. Aromas of syrupy/sugary sweet watermelon, with a slight toasted grain backbone. Flavors are toasty and smooth initially, with a biscuity backbone, followed by a sharp, sweet watermelon blast. The beer starts off smooth, but becomes watery quickly in mouth. Decent lacing left along the glass. Lightly sweet watermelon aftertaste, with a light, almost limp finish.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pale straw yellow with great clarity. Creamy white head retains fairly well. Scraggly, foamy lacing.

S: very clean, neutral nose. Subtle scent of biscuity/cracker malt. Vague, hollow hops. Candy watermelon aroma.

T: Biscuity and doughy malt, slight hay. Light hop bitterness, but not much flavor. Watermelon essence is subtle and comes out toward the end. Slight watermelon rind tartness. Very clean. Not much of a finish, it's very abrupt.

M: Light bodied, very creamy and slightly full feeling. Carbonation hits a perfect level and doesn't have the blast that many others of this type do. Nice mouthfeel for what it is.

O: It doesn't come across sickly sweet or artificial as most watermelon beers do, so it's a win there. It's very clean and refreshing as well. It does exactly what it needs to do, and nothing more.
