OK, so this isn't quite what I set out to buy this past week but it ended up in my locker anyway. Very light golden-copper hue with a huge frothy head that faded before I noticed. Best characteristic is the nose and since I'm a southern fatboy with watermelon on the brain it's quite the treat. I'd give it a five except it was a bit too sweet smelling for my taste. Compared to the nose the taste was weak with some grass and hops but generally underwhelming (and not sweet at all). Fair carbonation and a fair summer drink I guess. Perhaps a good party favor but nothing I'd regularly revisit.

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)
