Has a nice golden color to it, looks like a great summer brew. A decent sized frothy white head. Smells exactly like a watermelon Jolly Rancher, I'm sure they hear that a lot. Can pick up on some citrus, but the artificial watermelon is really overpowering. Tastes is pretty crisp, some hop taste to it, very refreshing but an in-your-face watermelon aftertaste takes a bit away from the overall taste of the beer.
I couldn't have more than a pint of this, just because of the extreme watermelon taste. I'm sure this would be an absolute hit for a non-beer drinker too.
Serving type: on-tap

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)
