Notes / Commercial Description:
his summertime lager is both smooth and refreshing as soon as it hits the lips. We take so much pride in it because there is truly nothing else like it on the market. We brew this German Style Helles Lager with three types of malt: pilsner, pale and carafoam. We then gingerly scatter some very light floral hops at the beginning to give it some esters and sweetness that compliment the watermelon. The true magic of this beer does not occur in the brewing process, but in the conditioning vessel. This is where we add the best, farm-fresh local watermelon and then "push" the beer into it, allowing it to sit and saturate for a few weeks. By the time it is complete, you are left with an unbelievably smooth-tasting beer with a captivating aroma and very subtle taste of watermelon that imparts its way into this already crisp lager. Truly our customers' favorite session beer, this one will have you reaching for another glass.

Poured a clear straw color with almost a finger of head that dissipated rather quickly. The nose is fruity but there is an odd note as well. The watermelon comes through in the flavor profile and the finish is semi-dry.
