Poured out an amber/copper color with a thin head.
Smell was mostly watermelons with a light hint of grain. A lot on the sweet side.
So with that aroma, I was preparing for a sticky sweet beer, but luckily it wasn't. In fact, the taste was very faint. A touch of watermelon with some grain notes.
Mouthfeel was light with a good dose of carbonation.
It's a summer beer and I'm sure that's what they got out of this beer with a market that they're trying to target, but it didn't do it for me. I just hope that they'll be more creative in the future.

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)
