A big shout out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bursting with watermelon, jolly ranchers come to mind. Taste is mild compared to the smell. Some watermelon, a bit of wheat, light and subdued. Feels light in the mouth and overall a refreshing beer, but not something I would want a steady diet of.

Draft into a standard pint at Watkins Drinkery a month or so ago.

Looks like an adjunct lager with a bigger head. 3/5

Scent is of a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Oddly, I like it. 4/5

This is really refreshing. Watermelon is not overpowering, but it tastes especially "light" for an ale. 3.5/5

Thin but not too thin! Pretty refreshing overall, and I imagine it as either a perfect lawnmower beer or change of pace. 4/5

Personally, I found this better than my previous experiences with 21st Amendment's Hell or High Watermelon. 3.75/5

(Grammatically enhanced quick notes from Watkins Drinkery a while back)

Serving type: on-tap
