Poured from a can into a pint glass.
Pours straw yellow with a 1/4th inch tall white head that dissipates quickly.
The smell is what took me off guard. It really does smell like watermelon, but it's not like a wine cooler. It has malt and a little hop smell with a strike of jolly rancher-like watermelon.
Taste is of fake watermelon. Like I said though, it's not just watermelon. It's like watermelon that compliments the flavors of the beer itself.
Mouthfeel is great. Nice and light in body but still flavorful as a beer itself and sweet watermelon taste.
Overall: Watermelon is a difficult beer to get right, and these guys certainly made a good example of it. Yeah the taste isn't going to taste like biting into a real watermelon. Watermelon itself has very little flavor other that sugar. Watermelon flavoring is still delicious though, and being a big fan of it, I found this beer to be great.
Serving type: can

I am lucky enough to have tried this at 21st Amndt. in San Francisco on draft served with a fresh watermelon slice! Yup it is not complete without the fresh fruit. And please don't judge by the from a "can" experience, I think it develops a metal residue flavor which I could actually pick up on. Draft only for this one please. Enjoy
Serving type: on-tap
