Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a large white head that fades very quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains so much watermelon that I didn’t even have to bring the beer to my nose in order to smell it. There are also light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste likewise starts out with a strong burst of watermelon sweetness that is quickly followed by some breadiness from a thin malt character. The hops presence is very mild and doesn’t bring much balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, very mild kick, decent representation of style, this is exactly what you would expect from a watermelon ale.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Hazy pale straw color. Fierce, unpleasant carbonation and light bodied. Strong watermelon nose and flavor is slightly sweet watermelon. Hops are hidden. $1.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.
